Upcycled Jewelry:  Making Something New Out of Vintage

 Reuse, remake, repurpose old vintage jewelry into something new!

I  love to make upcycled jewelry that is one-of-a-kind, totally unique and is fashionable and fun to wear today! I like to collect interesting vintage jewelry, buttons and parts….sometimes they sit for a long time on my bench waiting for the right combination of parts to come together for a fabulous piece. The vintage flower necklace above, made from brooches and earrings, just came together easily one day  but others take time just finding the perfect pieces to fit just right. From elaborate necklace statements to a simple repurposed pendant or earrings, I love the challenge of taking something old and maybe even a little funky and making something new, stylish and easy to wear! Nothing I make is mass produced, I like making everything at least a slightly bit different each time so everything is unique.  I have a variety unique customers from  11 years old to 75 years who really appreciate the uniqueness and handmade work!
