AuntMatildasJewelry's Shop Announcement

Unique handmade recycled jewelry made with a vintage Steampunk flair. Welcome to Aunt Matilda's Jewelry Box! I invite you take a moment to look around. Each piece is specially designed and made with love for you. I use found objects and recycled parts to capture that nostalgic feeling of a time gone by.

My great Aunt Matilda was a strong willed independent woman with a practical, and at times opinionated and outspoken character. She had a passion for travel far ahead of other women in her time. She led a most adventurous life, traveling the world for over 60 years and visiting exotic places such as Japan, France, China, Persia, and Tibet. In her travels, Matilda met with the ruler of Egypt, and dealt with bandits. In France, back in the fall of 1889, she even met Jules Verne! Throughout her adventures she collected objects and antiquities from the far reaches of the continent.

I remember, as a small girl examining the accumulated treasures that she brought back in her leather gripsack and listening intently as her stories were retold. It is with her spirit that I create the treasures that you will find inside Aunt Matilda's Jewelry Box!

Now you can recapture that spirit by unlocking Aunt Matilda's Jewelry Box. Once inside the jewelry box, you will see that many of the pieces tell a story about the exciting events in Aunt Matilda's life.

You can add these handcrafted designs to your own jewelry box and make them part of your story. Whether you are looking for something for yourself or a special gift for someone else, each purchase leaves Aunt Matilda's Jewelry Box in a tiny blue organza bag and includes a Tibetan silver "Made with love" charm.

I work hard to design original, unique keepsake jewelry and heirloom creations, therefore each piece may vary slightly. Although I am new to Etsy, I have been selling at art fairs since 1988. If you see something you like in the jewelry box, but would prefer a different color, material or quantity, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Thank you for stopping by to look, please visit often because new pieces are added weekly.

When in Florida, you can see my pirate jewelry inside The Pirate Store. Located in the Historic section of St. Augustine at 162 St George Street, St. Augustine.
