A Passion for Collecting Becomes a Passion for Creating

I have fond memories of rooting around in my mother's jewelry box as a child. It was all costume jewelry from the 50's and 60's and I liked holding it and examining how it was made and of course seeing her wear it! My mother could ACCESSORIZE!

I started collecting vintage jewelry in my teens and after retiring from my full-time job several years ago, on one of those "it sounded like a good idea at the time" cleaning jags, went through my vast collection. I still liked holding the pieces and examining the detail and craftsmanship used in making them but I didn't wear any of it and hadn't for a long time. The jewelry was fragile or not in style or uncomfortable (they're called 'chokers' for a reason) or, let's be honest, just too tacky!

So I took some broken vintage necklaces I had and reassembled the chains and beads into a long, light, slip over the head necklace I did wear. And when I wore it, people asked me where I got it and when I told them I made it, they asked if I could make them one and so on and so forth until threepeats Jewelry NYC was born. Since I was already a shopper on etsy (no, not for more vintage jewelry), it made sense to set up shop there.

My work keeps evolving. I have discovered other recycled materials to use such as
t-shirt yarn, handmade felt beads and sari silk ribbon. I LOVE making unique necklaces (and now earrings too) that recycle unusual and well-made materials into jewelry that is affordable, easy-to-wear and eco-friendly.

I especially love working with people on custom orders - making pieces with the materials I have on hand that bring their vision of what they want to wear (or give as a gift) to life.

    Born and raised in the city, I am a lifelong, diehard New Yorker. You gotta problem with that? I didn't think so! ;) But seriously, I love the energy, diversity and the mix of old and new in NYC. I hope my jewelry reflects that!

threepeats Jewelry NYC carries unique handmade necklaces made from recycled vintage chain, beads, ribbon, lace and sometimes t shirt yarn, sari silk ribbon and felt beads. They are long and light and are assembled by hand without soldering!

Dangle earrings (for pierced ears) made from recycled vintage chain and beads are also available.

I enjoy repurposing vintage materials or mixing vintage materials with contemporary ones to create distinctive modern jewelry pieces. All my jewelry is eco-friendly, comfortable and easy-to-wear.
