Announcement   WELCOME TO "FROM ALMA'S ATTIC".....
.......where you will find original, one-of-a-kind, unique and creatively designed "Vintage Style" jewelry with a nostalgic appeal, yet a great mix with modern attire!
Wouldn't you enjoy having a piece of jewelry with a "vintage" touch? Such a fun addition to a wardrobe!!!

I love to give items "new life", as they are either re-purposed from found objects and vintage pieces, or designed anew with a vintage appearance. Many of my designs feature images (particularly "French") set in resin....one of my favorite mediums to work with.

I strive to make my designs "timeless" and unique and want my customers to feel good about wearing them. Furthermore, I want my customers to be happy with their purchases and usually ship within 1-3 days.
Feel free to stroll through my shop sections and perhaps something will grab your attention!

And, please be sure to read my shop policies before placing an order.

Thank you for visiting From Alma's Attic.

This brooch is just beautiful-I was looking for a pin to close up a sweater vest I plan to wear on Thanksgiving. I took time to look at quite a few of them on Etsy. This one was the exact size I was looking for and had that antique brass, more vintage look to it that I was also looking for. It is gorgeous and will look great with anything! Very happy with purchase and fast shipping. Would buy from this seller again.

About

Love "Vintage"! Since I'm inspired by that feminine sentimental nostalgic look, I want my shop's handmade jewelry to reflect that style!

Most of my life has always been about "art" and/or "creating" something! So much inspiration and lessons came from my grandmother, Alma (thus, I named my shop after her), as she taught me so much. She instilled in me, especially, her love of antiques and vintage things. So, as I grew up, I too, collected the "old" things that I loved!

As a career as a graphic artist for a large corporation, the creating continued...and I was getting paid for it! Years of pen and ink drawings and watercolors of old historical architecture was a side line passion. Also, sewing...combining colors, textures and fabrics, and utilizing embellishments....just so many ways to be creative. And, I've always loved old photos, particularly studying the jewelry worn in those pictures. So, my own "vintage" style jewelry making began! Thus, I've been designing and making jewelry in the nostalgic vintage style for nearly 18 years and still love it. The outlet has been primarily art fairs, and local boutiques. So, it was time to also open my Etsy Shop, From Alma's Attic!!

I work out of an upstairs room....my "creative little nest", overlooking my backyard garden. Here, spools of ribbon, stacks of fabrics, paints and boxes and drawers full of old buttons, beads and findings....a whole crayola box of fun things to create with!! A little music, a peaceful setting - thus, my retreat to let inspirational flow!!

Creativity has no limitations...there is always something new to learn and try to incorporate in designs. I love vintage images (especially French motifs), birds, nature and subtle colors and the use of resin in much of my work. So, with an art background and loving the creative times with my grandmother........From Alma's Attic began!!

Thank you for visiting my shop and getting to "know" a little bit about me!
Love and Joy,
Barbara

Thank you for visiting From Alma's Attic! I'm inspired daily by "life" ~ nature, colors, music ~ so many factors that lead to designing. Therefore, I enjoy creating jewelry that is timeless in appearance, yet very wearable!
