Announcement    Tomorrow's heirlooms lovingly hand-crafted today, as a romantic tribute to the past.

SALE:
No Coupons needed. Spend $35 or more and automatically get free US Shipping. Don't worry though, my shipping charges are minimal, if your looking to spend less or are out of the US.

Like to haggle? If you're interested in a few pieces and would like to give me your best offer, I will be happy to give it consideration or possibly counter offer. After all, you're looking for your best deal and I'm here to make money.

In case you've been wondering why I haven't had any new inventory, I'm sorry. My store is still open, don't hesitate to purchase something, it will get delivered on time, as usual. The last 2 years have gone quite unexpectedly for me and my shop. Please check back occasionally because once I get my new jewelry room set up, new items will be coming out quickly. Over the past two years, my step-mother and father-in-law passed away, and most recently my father has moved in with my husband and I. He's 85 and takes up some of my time. We also just bought a new house on 7 acres of land, which is going to take some of my time too before we can move in and then some. We should be closing soon, and hopefully by Fall, I'll be set up and ready to start creating again in time for all of your holiday shopping needs.

I am going to be incorporating more and more Sterling Silver (.925) and Gold Filled (GF) items into my own creations, as someone whom is allergic to most metals, I like being able to have some other alternative choices to own and wear. What is GF or Gold Filled? Gold Filled is 14K Gold over Brass, making it last longer than Gold Plating and cheaper than solid gold. It looks the same and with proper care will remain beautiful for many years.

Most of my items are One of a Kinds (OOAK), containing repurposed vintage items that I am giving new life to, or special designs and colors created for just that piece. Many times, different methods of antiquing or chemical and heat processes can result in a different outcome for the same identical piece, therefore no two pieces are ever truly identical.

Almost all of my brass stampings and majority of all of my tools and supplies are purchased from my favorite supplier, B'Sue Boutiques, whom offers only metal finishes that are high end, artisan made, and absolutely nickel free. Their brass stampings are made from vintage molds of stampings that stopped being made many, many years ago, and that many of today's suppliers don't offer. Coming soon to my store, Pewter stampings with some gorgeous finishes from B'Sue by 1928, (and Yes, that is the famous 1928 company that B'Sue has now partnered with).

If your looking for vintage pieces, I have a nice selection including Anne Klein, Monet, Coro, Napier, Trifari, NLH, Disney, Liz Claiborne, and more, and even more unsigned pieces, that change out pretty quickly as I sell them and get more. All vintage items are offered as is. If the piece has been repaired or cleaned it will state so in the description for that piece. If the item is listed as a set, I will not break the set up for purchase. It is in your best interest to purchase the entire set that is available, as it will be much more valuable for you in the future. I try very hard to research each piece and learn as much about who made it and when, and then price the piece(s) at a reasonable price. I love sending these pieces to new homes where they will be cherished and passed down within the family. Hopefully you should be able to find something you love at a price you can afford.

Thanks for visiting. Please check back often, since I find some vintage treasures that need permanent homes on a pretty regular basis, plus I am always making new pieces that I hope will be loved and cherished by not only you, but by your family as you pass them down to younger generations.

About SLGJewelryDesigns

Sales 158
On Etsy since 2015

Disabled woman using my "good days" doing something I enjoy & hopefully supplement income.

MORE ABOUT ME: * stands for listed at the bottom.

I became disabled in 2009. Weighing over 300lbs. and having had tried every diet imaginable, I made the drastic decision to have bariatric surgery in 2008, Roux-en-Y specifically . Unfortunately, I have had multiple complications including a hiatal hernia that wasn't paid attention to, and by the time I was finally able to go to another doctor it had grown so large my entire new stomach and part of my intestine had gone up and through, lodging into my diaphragm. This caused nerve damage and chronic pain. Since then I've lived through severe weight loss, gall bladder removal and four serious messenteric hernias that required more surgeries, vitamin deficiencies, and secondary complications causing neurological problems, lymphedema, vision problems, and more. To read more about my illness, you can go to my blog.* Since discussing my complications openly in my blogs, I have met many people that have had some or all of the same types of complications and it is bringing to light the side that many of the bariatric surgeons or clinics don't tell you may happen.

Sincerely,
Shari Lynn Gardner

    Buddy is the newest member of my team & learning new things everyday. If I drop something, he picks it up, so I don't have to. He opens doors for me and everyone knows who he is whether we go into my pharmacy, a craft Store, or hardware store.
