From Raw to Whimsical. One Dream at a Time.

~*I was married in December, and I am currently in the midst of changing my name. Sorry for any confusion for past customers! *~

My name is Victoria Oliver (Dunnaway), and this little Etsy shop offers a glimpse into my studio...

Using a blend of blacksmith and silversmith techniques, beautiful antique tools and fanciful designs; my jewelry pieces combine rare earth elements in a whimsical way for beautifully bohemian, free-spirited women...

Using mainly recycled and locally sourced materials; I blend contemporary and age-old designs in an effort to create pieces that tell a tangible story, and use lightly of the resources we are gifted with. My pieces blend natural influences with a flair for fantasy.

I collect and rescue beautiful antique tools. There are stories etched into their worn handles and patina'ed metal... Hammers, files and pliers collected from grandfathers, uncles, flea markets; and a stunning old hand-turn drill-press, once repaired, gracefully continues on as I fabricate projects.

My studio feels creative, homey, and well-loved. I hope that my work brings the same peaceful feeling into any life that it touches.

I am willing to work with you on any issue, if necessary, as long as you ask me before purchasing, to insure that it CAN be worked out. I will try my best to insure a positive transaction!

I set my shipping prices as cheaply as I can, which will be for the slower mail services. If you need it quickly, please let me know, so that I can set up another shipping service for you.
