Sharky's Waters -- Where Vintage and Handmade Treasures are Found

I've been collecting vintage jewelry since the early 80's and have been making my own jewelry since the mid 90's.

In the mid 80's I was dubbed "Sharky" by my friends due to my love of sharks. I had shark t-shirts, shark jewelry, shark decor, you name it. So when I started my business online in 1999 it only seemed to make sense to me to call it Sharky's Waters because it was where my items would be found. In 2010 I moved my shop to Etsy and have been here ever since.

I hope you enjoy browsing through all of the vintage jewelry treasures I've found and the earrings that I've made. If you have questions on any of the items I have for sale please don't hesitate to contact me.
