MPPDesigns' Shop Announcement

My love of costume jewelry started with watching the old black and white Hollywood movies on TV. Almost immediately I was aware that I loved the accessories, the clothing and the overall look much more than I was interested in the plots. From that start I moved on to appreciate the art in beads and well-made vintage clothing. I still wear vintage frequently. One of my goals is to help others appreciate beautiful items from the past and see how easy it is to enjoy them now.

I also re-purpose vintage brooches, broken earrings and magnificent beads into magnetic-back brooches. Women appreciate that these can be worn so many ways and can completely change the look of an outfit, a hat, a handbag, or a scarf.

Many of my brooches begin with a vintage piece, which I then embellish for its new re-styled life. Others are completely new designs. All of them are innovative, stylish, user friendly and versatile. As with my other jewelry, each brooch is unique to you. If you have any requests for a color or particular style, let me know. I have so many more that are not listed yet.

In my shop each design is one of a kind, designed and made by me alone. I love to use many of the vintage components I have collected over the years and incorporate contemporary beads of all kinds in my pieces. You can be sure that when you wear a piece from MPP Designs no one else will have another one like it!

You will also find some exquisite vintage pieces for sale here; some clothing, some jewelry and some accessories. Be assured that any vintage item you buy from me is very wearable, in fact something I would be proud to wear myself.

One of my favorite things is to design custom necklaces or magnetic-back brooches to meet your needs. Contact me to discuss that opportunity.
