Announcement   Welcome to my shop. "peep" is your source for hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind accessories. I use vintage jewelry to create picture frames, treasure boxes and new jewelry. I also make handbags, hats, pillows and other soft accessories from re-purposed cashmere, angora and wool sweaters.

All goods in my shop were hand-made by me, not by some poor soul laboring for pennies in a third-world sweat-shop. "peep" was born from my love of vintage jewelry and accessories, along with a passion for breathing new life into old, worn out things. Thrift stores and auctions are my favorite shopping venues. I believe upcycling and upscale style can live quite happily together, thank you very much.

Welcome to my shop. "peep" was born from the idea that eco-friendly design and one-of-a-kind style could live quite happily together, thank you very much.

All my goods are hand-made from vintage jewelry, cashmere, angora, wool, etc. Raw materials are gleaned from old picture frames, jewelry boxes, sweaters and the like which are rescued from the rag-bag and the thrift store, then recycled and repurposed.

All soft items are washed, which guarantees cleanliness and actually changes the fabric. Predominantly wool items felt down to a denser, more durable material that may be worked in new ways. Cashmere doesn’t felt, but a good wash makes it more approachable – softer, and just a little fuzzy, like your oh-so-proper Aunt Myrtle after a few glasses of spiked eggnog.

I add new and vintage jewelry, fabrics and trims, throw in a bit of whimsy and voila! Others’ castoffs become fresh, up-to-date accessories for people and their homes.

Although "peep" is all about recycling, I only use new, unused pillow forms and poly-fill material for pillows and stuffed toys.

I rarely use patterns - this is not a cookie-cutter operation. Each piece speaks its own story to me, so while some items may be similar, no two will be exactly alike.

Big bags are usually lined. Little bags, perfect for special occasions and little ladies, are usually not.

Since soft goods are made from wool, angora and cashmere, it is recommended that they be hand-washed in cool water. When in doubt, I suggest dry cleaning.

Items made from vintage jewelry may be fragile and should be treated gently. Do not use embellishments as handles for lifting the tops of jewelry boxes and trinket jars.
