Tinseile: These are a few of my favorite things!
My Etsy adventure began as a way to clear out my jewelry box. I love wearing my vintage pieces with my historical costumes because I like the unique character vintage jewelry has. Soon after opening my shop three years ago, I soon learned that I was not alone!
I opened my shop, Tineseile (Middle English for "tinsel"), specifically to share my love of Renaissance Revival jewelry, but the shop has since grown to encompass many other styles and eras, especially antique jewelry from 1855-1925. I love meeting customers and collectors who are just as passionate about historical and unique jewelry as I am! Every piece of jewelry in my shop is hand-picked for its personality, history, or peculiarities. It's an exciting process!
If you are a collector interested in specific types of pieces, I am always willing to keep an eye out for item you might like. Just send me a note or follow my shop and I'll keep you up-to-date on the fresh finds as they come into the shop.
The money I raise selling these little treasures goes towards supporting my family and forays into the fascinating realm of historical costume. For more about my life outside Etsy, you can visit my historical costuming blog, The Pragmatic Costumer, on Wordpress: thepragmaticcostumer.wordpress.com
Thank you for visiting!
As a costumer, I appreciate the human aspect of antique jewelry and as a curator, I appreciate its historical significance. I am a librarian by day, an artist by night, and a passionate collector always!
