Love this bracelet and such a creative use for an antique drawer pull. I love birds, so this works for me and you can bet no one else will have one like it!

About

Jewelry with the patina of time and travel, and a dash of gypsy spirit!

Artistic talent goes back several generations on my dad's side of the family - painters, watchmakers, photographers, musicians and even a playwright - so it always seemed natural to be creative. I've always loved to draw and paint, and I also dabbled in floral design for a while, but jewelry design is my real passion.

I joined Etsy in 2007, and was amazed at the endless amount of talent I saw here. In 2009 I finally got up the courage to open my own shop and what a great learning experience that has been! It's opened up a whole new world for me - and for that I owe Etsy a debt of gratitude. The experience of opening my shop and putting my things on display for the world to see gave me the confidence that eventually led to having my work featured in magazines such as Belle Armoire Jewelry, Jewelry Affaire, BeadStyle and Bead Trends.

My jewelry is created with a mixture of new components and old found objects that range from keyhole escutcheons and antique furniture trim to cuckoo clock chain and even an occasional water faucet handle! I'm constantly being inspired to learn new techniques and to grow in my knowledge and ability, in hopes that I can continue to offer unique and well made jewelry pieces that my customers will enjoy wearing.

Thanks so much for taking an interest in my shop!

    It's Natasha's lovely neck you see modeling the necklaces in my shop! Although her head usually isn't included in the pictures, I took pity upon her baldness and painted a cute hairstyle for her - I think she wears it well!
