I was around 8 years old when I started making stuff. A friend of mine and I used to make friendship bracelets. You remember the kind; they were knotted bracelets made from embroidery thread? We used to set up a little table outside of a friends shop on Main St and sell them to passerby’s. After that, I moved on to simple beaded jewelry and as time went on, I moved on to different mediums and different techniques. I decided to sell my wares in June of 2009 while on maternity leave. I set up a shop on Etsy and started selling jewelry along with baby mobiles after having some success making my own for little man. After a year and a half, I temporarily closed shop. Little man was becoming more mobile and needed more of my time. I was happy to oblige.
I was recently in my work room and noticed a lot of inventory still laying around. So, I’ve slowly worked the old inventory back into the shop, along with a few new pieces I created.
I love upcycling vintage broaches into cocktail rings. They are so fun and add just a little something to the most simplest of outfits.
I’ve decided to reopen the shop featuring mostly cocktail rings made from vintage pieces along with anything else that strikes my fancy. I’ve got a few ideas turning in my crazy brain so I honestly don’t know how the shop will evolve but it should be a fun ride! I will not be adding pieces into the shop daily; it will mostly be a bulk restock that I will announce here when they happen. I also will not be talking a lot about the shop on the blog; so if you are interested in anything, there is a link to the right hand side in the sidebar area that will take you directly to the shop. Or, you can check out ‘The Shop’ tab at the top for pictures of recently listed items.
