Circa 1890 Where vintage... meets Modern

Thank you for visiting Circa 1890 on Etsy! If you have a soft spot for the grandeur and quality details of a bygone era, then Circa 1890 may just be for you. Here you’ll find vintage style jewelry, pendulums, and pendulum charts.

Visit the Circa 1890 Blog and take our intuitively crafted personality quiz to learn which gemstone best fits with your energy and personal journey. Just visit our blog link below to take ❤️ THE ENERGY QUADRANT PERSONALITY QUIZ ❤️

I began designing jewelry three decades ago and, to this day, I’m inspired and compelled to keep designing. Although my Etsy shop was opened in 2009, I have primarily sold my work at in person events and have only recently built out my shop collection to what it is today. I hope you’ll find something you love and I’m just a click away from answering any questions you may have.

With a long-time affection for 19th detail, kindled with inspiration from the turn of the century, I began designing vintage style jewelry in 1991. Lost in the world of old illustrated catalogues by Timothy Eaton and Sears Roebuck, it was inevitable that I would, one day, design in the likes of the period. Beguiled by the beauty of the era, and with the imaginations of an eight-year-old, these very catalogues had me wandering into a world of the past where shopping was elegant and price points were suitable to a child.

That love continued to deepen and develop, taking my creative endeavors into a 30-year journey that still has me inspired to design items that please the spirit and sooth the soul. Creating pieces that have special symbolic meaning, using gemstones with amazing metaphysical properties, and everlasting beauty, is what still drives me to design today.

The collection ranges from traditional to modern-vintage, always incorporating a touch of yesteryear. Using traditional methods that were used for costume jewelry making during the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s, each design in the Circa 1890 collection is hand soldered using die struck brass components, many of which have been around for over 100 years. Many of the pieces require multiple layer soldering and manipulation of the metal to achieve a rich and elegant feel. All the jewelry is handcrafted in my home studio and guaranteed for quality and durability. 

New to my shop is a collection of gemstone pendulums and intuitively crafted pendulum charts. I often spend far too much time designing pendulums, adding delicate details until I arrive at just the right aesthetic. I derive immense pleasure in knowing that one of my pieces will make its way into your heart and that the intuitive pendulum charts may serve you in your journey.

I love to create in a heartfelt manner so that my work will resonate with those who look for deeper meaning in life. What I create is a labor of love.. and I hope that you will find your own special meaning in the items that speak to you.

Circa 1890 jewelry is rich in historical meaning and symbolism and you are sure to find a special story in each design. With a passion for all things beautiful, and meaningful, I put great attention to design detail, offering you the best in quality craftsmanship. Whether you’re looking for that select item that speaks to your heart, or the perfect gift for someone you love, the Circa 1890 collection is designed to uplift the spirit with the beauty of a bygone era.
 
Blessings ❤️
