Announcement    Re-Use. Re-Cy-Cle. Re-Pur-Pose. Re-Con-Struct-ion-ism! Deadstock Vintage findings for the indie designer! Green finds for your jewelry and art! I hope that you will "favorite" my shop so that you can see what is new. Thanks from my heart <3! Your purchases are so appreciated!!
Oh, and if you have a minute, please check out my other shop that is beginning to fill with vintage clothing and accessories and unique and sometimes kitschy things for your home- https://www.etsy.com/shop/WhiteElephantsShop
Welcome to my shop filled with some of the most unique deadstock vintage (and vintage looking....) jewelry findings. Please let me know if you need quantity of anything. Some finds are more limited than others. FREE US First Class shipping for all orders totaling $35 or more!
All inventory is vintage unless noted in the listing. If I know a decade, I will share it with you. If an item is new (and there will be some that are), I will spell it out clearly that it is.
***I will send a shipping refund if there is a significant overage when you purchase multiple items. This is especially true for international buyers. The Etsy Shipping Calculator is good, but not perfect!
Convo me with any questions and I will try and answer them. Happy shopping! You are welcome to browse the sold listings and inquire about any of the items that may not be listed in the current inventory. I hopefully have more or may be able to restock if you need quantity. And if you are searching for something in particular, let me know. I just may have what you are looking for.. that I haven't listed.... yet!
Thank you for supporting my little shop of findings!

About reconstructionism

Sales 4,460
On Etsy since 2009

Vintage jewelry findings are sourced from warehouses that have new old stock- great old quality and unused... ready for your cool creations!

Rummaging through boxes and bins of brass bits, beads, cabochons, and chains, is always a fun adventure. I’m so happy to share my discoveries with you!

Always at home in thrift stores, at flea markets, and estate sales, I have amassed far more parts than the projects that I have in mind. So, with those little ferreted treasures and overstocks of other more recent vintage wholesale buys, I give you reconstructionism- a place to buy the needed and the unexpected for your designs. Re-use. Re-cy-cle. Re-pur-pose. Reconstructionism.
While almost all of my finds are vintage, I will let you know when they are not...
