Love this kit! The class was stunning, and I wanted to make a second globe, and the kit has everything that I need. Thank you so much!

About

Bring, Me the Bling and I Will Find Its Soul

In my early thirties I had the opportunity to travel from Texas to New York City for the first time. On the top of my list was a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is hard for me to explain the experience for me is hard to explain. I found myself unable to pull away from looking at a display of a woman's sandal dated a million or more years ago. The sandal was so similar to the very one I had selected to wear to the museum that day. As I gazed at the display, I was unable to move beyond the idea that the woman and I were so closely connected. She needed the shoe to survive her daily life, and I needed a very similar shoe to make the pilgrimage to see what had not changed in millions of years. As profound an experience, I do not believe I have had since that day in the 80's. I seek to find the stories in objects. Simple or ornate, jewelry has a history. When I work with my designs it is most rewarding for me to hold a piece and wonder to whom the jewel might have belong, for what purpose it presented, and where had it been. This is how Historically Haute came to be a joyful expression of my desire to preserve beautiful jewelry.

    Hello from Texas. I'm a retired theatre teacher who can't live with out creativity. I had gathered a large collection of vintage and antique jewelry to use for stage purposes. It was a natural progression to begin redesigned jewelry art.

Thank you for shopping Historically Haute. You will find plenty of just for fun items. I look forward to creating a one of a kind item using your documents; love letters, birth announcements, historical documents of all kinds. I use repurposed jewelry in my redesigns and therefore metals are difficult to determine. Request sterling silver bases for earrings when necessary.
