About

What Was Old is New Again...

I was 5 years old. I remember sitting in my family's metal shop business with my Mom, while Dad welded a frame. It was a delicate little princess crown, which my mom then covered in "junk" rhinestone jewelry for my Halloween costume. So began my love affair with jewelry.

My Grandma had the bug too, and her jewelry box was one of my favorite play spots. She had such great costume jewelry, nothing too fancy but awesome nonetheless. That's where my love of 40's, 50's and 60's vintage began.

I started collecting vintage jewelry while in high school, oddly enough due to Madonna. She wore stacks and stacks of rhinestones, and while I could pick up knockoffs in the store, my thriftiness led me to second-hand stores where you could pick them up for next to nothing. Ahh, those were the days. This is also when I began to make my own jewelry too, crazy stuff made of found objects from the hardware store!

A few years ago, overwhelmed by the amount of jewelry in my collection that never got worn, I decided to break it down and recycle it, and Nuggets of Goodness was born. I am wife to a wonderful man, and mommy to an incredible daughter on the spectrum. Collectively we call ourselves Team Nugget, and they are my Sweet Nuggets of Goodness...I thought that would be a fitting name for my Etsy shop! ♥

    A sense of nostalgia figures large in the pieces that I make. They incorporate components of vintage jewelry that I have broken down and re-purposed, giving old baubles new life. That and I really like rhinestones :)
