Like a crow - I have an obsession with and collect very sparkly things.

Hello! My name is Faro (pronounced Fair-Oh)

I take broken vintage costume jewelry, and salvage it, clean it, repair it and then make it into something new. My hairpieces, tiaras and hair extensions are all handmade by me. The good stuff that isn't broken beyond any possible recognition, is cleaned, repaired and offered for sale in my shop here too. I also salvage vintage beaded purses by replacing missing beads, sequins and pearls and replace missing straps or chains. Sometimes I will pull the bag and the lining from the frame and soak it clean and put it back together again. I enjoy making lovely vintage items useable again, and I salvage all that I can in the process.

My shop is called OhFaro, because friends said "Oh Faro!" when I started to make my hairpieces. I really love that.

I live in beautiful Mission Viejo, California.

I have another shop on etsy:
For vintage jewelry in lots, clearance items and vintage supplies.

    Lover of vintage costume jewelry. Many of my hair creations have some kind of old beauty included; I never toss a rhinestone that can be reused, it is simply against my nature.

Thank you for your kind visit to my little shop, I appreciate your interest.

Many of my hairpieces are created using salvaged jewelry components. I refurbish pieces by using harvested stones and findings to revive the broken pieces to create a fresh and artful presentation. Still, the items are vintage, so expect that to be part of the charm. I sell true vintage and offer the best vintage I can find. My items are not for children. Adult use only please.

Some of my hair combs can be a bit heavy for fine hair. your hairpiece should be added to your already styled up-do, after your hairstyle has been fixed into place. Hair spray will cause discoloration on some beads, de-foiling on rhinestones and will coat your hairpieces, so it is best to place your pieces in your hair after your style is set.
