Sharky's Waters -- Where vintage and handmade treasures are found
Sharky's Waters was started in the late 90's online primarily for vintage jewelry sales. It wasn't long after that Sharky's handmade jewelry items were added to that, and in 2012 Sharky's Mother joined the store and it was moved here to Etsy, where it has remained and flourished since.
Sharky got her nickname from her lifelong interest in sharks, her love of vintage jewelry from her Grandmother, and her love of making jewelry and crafts from her Mother. She's been collecting and making things since the early 1980's. Sharky deals with all of the vintage items you see in the shop, as well as taking the broken vintage jewelry that comes in, breaking it down, and cleaning it thoroughly so that beads and findings can be made into new pieces or sold for supplies rather than winding up in landfills. She also makes a lot of new jewelry pieces, and enjoys working with polymer clay as well.
Sharky's Mother, K. Bryant has been crafting, sewing, and making jewelry since the 1970s. She especially likes working with seed beads.
We hope you enjoy browsing through our shop of "treasures", and if we can assist you in any way please feel free to contact us.
