Exactly as shown and promised. This was an unusual item that I took a chance on as a gift and it worked out perfectly! TheFamiLeeJewels was very responsive to my questions before the purchase and helped arrange shipping to get the bracelet to me on time. No complaints. No problems. I would buy from them again!

About

Finding Beauty in What Others Consider Trash.

I love old things and call them "vintage".
I look for grime and oxidation and call it "patina".
I search through other peoples cast offs and call it treasure.

I am a magpie. I freely admit it. I love a day spent at a flea market or garage sale picking through the smalls and looking for bits of treasure that can be used in my jewelry designs. Old leather, rhinestones, lonely earrings, tiny toys and game pieces, keys (I adore keys), old brass cabinet hardware, decorative tins, and even an old compass have found their way into my designs.

Once home and sorted I place my finds in little piles of likely combinations as I introduce the treasures to one another and figure out which combination will provide inspiration.

Then the fun begins. Cutting here, filing there, shaping it a little, wiring and riveting pieces together to tell a story.....and to make a piece of jewelry that is comfortable and fun to wear.

Because Life is too short to wear department store jewelry.
