Making a Small Business Grow
I formally founded my on-line vintage-aged brass jewelry business, Brass Bouquet, in 2007, retiring the business in 2014. I continued my love of antiqued brass components by keeping my line of solid perfume lockets and compacts in my Etsy Shop — Lady of the Lockets.
Being a perfumer myself I feel a kinship to others in the fragrance world and want to give them quality containers for their own fragrances -- whether they be a newbie in fragrances, an old-hand at it or someone wanting to create gifts for family or themselves.
BRIEF PROFESSIONAL HISTORY: Prior to my Brass Bouquet business, I owned and operated Grant Creek Enterprises, where I represented other artists and craftspersons promoting, developing and marketing their work through shows and catalogs. I sponsored art and craft shows twice yearly -- which entailed promoting, marketing, set-up and sales.
I continue to create vintage-styled jewelry for gift shops throughout the US and Canada. I design fragrances for my line of solid perfume lockets and compacts which I sell to boutique-styled shops.
I was a fiber artist for 25 years, working on a 60”, 12 harness loom, creating coverlets, textiles, and outer wear which sold in small clothing shops in Portland, Oregon.

I do not insure packages -- if you would like additional insurance, please convo me and let me know. We'll be happy to add that service.
Thus far, there is no Delivery Confirmation available for International Shipments. If a package is lost in transit -- replacement will not be possible. I am sorry about that issue. However, we've been extremely fortunate and have never lost a package in shipment.
REDUCED SHIPPING CHARGES ARE AVAILABLE!
If you are interested in purchasing a quantity of items, check with me as I reduce shipping charges. This helps to bring shipping charges "down to reality." It's hard with Etsy to put accurate and fair shipping charges on each order and I am happy to work with you.
We Ship Internationally -- We try to ship out within 2-3 days.
If you have any further questions -- please feel free to convo me! Thanks again, Jill, Shop Owner
