ItsVera's Shop Announcement

Welcome, I design and meticulously craft this jewellery using silver-smithing tools and techniques.
Most of the jewellery in my shop is made using the metal from vintage and antique silverware. This silver was once well loved family treasures and over time became unused and unwanted. I rescue this silverware and design new trendy jewellery to be loved and treasured by you. My jewellery can become your family heirloom. Every item in my shop is unique and personally handcrafted by me.

The knitting rings in my shop are all my original designs and handmade by Vera.

It's Vera History:
I have been designing and making jewellery since I took my first silver-smithing course a few decades ago in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. I love using vintage silverware, recycled metal, sterling silver, clay, and other non-traditional materials.

In 2010, I discovered Etsy and decided it was a great venue to sell my jewellery. Through my Etsy shop, I enjoy conversing with people from all over the world.
On weekends, I love browsing through antique shops , vintage stores, and flea markets to look for old unwanted silver. My head is always filled with design ideas and there never seems to be enough time in a day to create all the things I want to make.
Making new jewellery from old, vintage silverware and giving it a new life as unique, trendy jewellery is just fun.

I hope you will take time to browse and enjoy your visit to my 'It's Vera' shop. Please send me a 'message' if you have any questions. I try to check and answer messages regularly. I'd love to hear from you.

Please check my shipping policy before ordering.
