150 Song Titles Available, 150 Designs Available

Orders placed by December 15 can be received in time for the holiday. I started making music box jewelry in 1984 when I needed the extra income so I could afford to stay home with my children after they were born. I had been collecting vintage musical lockets and pendants since the 70's, and they stopped selling them. I wanted more, so I began the process of finding the best way to make these reproductions. They've been through many incarnations in the process but about ten years ago I settled on the heart shaped, square and round styles I currently carry. I also have over 200 different song titles available, including specialty holiday songs. I visited every music box supply company I could find during my travels over the years and purchased a small number of miniature music box song mechanisms as they were licensed. I am a musician and I love jewelry. This shop is the perfect option that allows me to indulge in my two greatest passions, after being a mother and wife. When my husband passed away seven years ago, I began marketing these online. I was determined to make musical jewelry that was completely original while also being completely faithful to the vintage jewelry I'd collected so long, and to the same quality standard, so I researched the market carefully before launching my musical jewelry line. I was determined to maintain my own sense of style and originality.

I have a lot of vintage collectibles that I will be offering in my shop, but musical jewelry has been my handmade specialty. Music has a remarkable power to interact with our memories, immediately taking us back to a time and place that had special meaning. Whether that memory was of listening to the radio while on a first date, a first dance at a prom, or hearing a favorite song for the first time while driving the kids to school, we all have a special place in our hearts for certain melodies.

I hope I have that special song that you've been looking for to celebrate a special memory. Nothing makes me happier than to share my love of these little charms with others.

Thank you for your support and for making it all worthwhile.

Welcome to Vanity Jewel Box. I have over 250 vintage and 100 handmade designs and over 200 song choices. All the songs available may not be listed as I am always adding songs to the list whenever I find a new one. Contact me if you are looking for a specific song. I cannot make song mechanisms. They cannot be manufactured in a home business environment. However, I have access to the database of Sankyo movements so I can verify if a miniature song movement was manufactured. Not all songs are licensed by the owner of the music for use in producing miniature mechanisms, but I can usually verify if it's possible to obtain a copy of the song.
