Announcement   What's old is new again. Old photos and tintypes have found a new home. Vintage pieces of jewelry have been cast in a new light. All of my jewelry is handmade using vintage rhinestones, tintypes, photos, rusty keys, and found objects. I cherish history and hope I have preserved a small part of it in my jewelry pieces. I also design and create custom jewelry using family photos and objects, transforming them into wearable memories.

Visit often as there is always something different to see. I am not encumbered by one particular style. I also enjoy working with vintage tin lithograph toys and you may find a few that wind up in a necklace or brooch or maybe even a bracelet.

Your purchase will arrive boxed with insurance and tracking.

If you have any questions on any of the jewelry I make, please do not hesitate to contact me prior to purchase.

I offer layaway for items over $100.00. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required as the initial installment with the balance due in 30 days.

Please be sure to look at my photos; read the descriptions carefully and ask any questions before purchase.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Hope to see you again real soon.

About

The AnnieLorraine Story

My shop is named after my two biggest supporters; Annie, my mother-in-law and Lorraine; my mother. They always encouraged me and any venture I tried was because of their support.

Creating jewelry was not my first forage into the arts. Originally I created folk art painting, crewel embroidery, and sewing primitive dolls. I've been involved is some type of crafting for most of my life.

I love working with tintypes and old photos. I call them wearable memories. Seeing old photos or tintypes in a pile at a flea market saddens me as I feel they had no one left in the world. I feel that I am rescuing them so they can continue on their journey with a different family.

I hope you know when you buy a piece of my jewelry that you will be the only person in the world wearing that particular piece. I do not make duplicates.

I have created quite a few custom pieces using family photos, mementos and found objects. I work closely with my customers requesting custom pieces to make sure that my vision of the completed piece is the same as theirs.

The "past " gives me inspiration to create in the "present."
