Announcement   Vintage and Antique Assemblage Jewelry--Jewelry With A Past--Designed for the Future
My unique jewelry designs are created using Vintage Lockets, Antique Art Medals, Vintage and Antique Components. I design and create each piece with great care and attention to detail. Each creation is one of a kind--just likeYOU!


I love using antique and vintage components to create gorgeous, one of a kind jewelry. I am especially fond of antique art medals. Each piece of jewelry in my shop is lovingly designed and created. I tend to let the components dictate how they should be used, therefore my jewelry designs are rather eclectic. Have fun looking through my shop!

About

Vintage Assemblage Jewelry, Designed and Created by Lianne Donald

So nice of you to stop by!

All of my jewelry has a past and is lovingly designed and created to last for generations to come. As I hold each component, I am taken back to a time when things were made to last. I can't help but wonder who owned it and what it meant to them. I believe each piece holds the story of its previous owner. I also believe that each component I use had special meaning to its previous owner.

I tend to let the components dictate how they should be used, therefore my jewelry designs are rather eclectic. Have fun looking through my shop!

The following quote has become my mantra:
"Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found." James Russell Lowell (1819 - 1891)

I chose to show pictures of my surroundings while I create---you can always look at my listings to see WHAT I create. I have an aversion to having my picture taken, I don't know why, but I do and always have. I'm just a little quirky that way!

    It all started with my love of antiques and my need to feed my creative soul. I love taking pieces of the past and incorporating them into unique jewelry designs.

Shop policies

Last updated on June 26, 2013
All of my jewelry is lovingly repurposed from antique and vintage components. Sometimes my jewelry tells a story, sometimes it's inspirational and sometimes I create it "just because"! A lot of thought goes into each piece I create. You can be assured that each one of my creations is made with the utmost of care!

If you have any questions about my jewelry feel free to contact me! Since most of my pieces are one of a kind they can't be duplicated but I may be able to make something similar, just let me know.
