Making Necklaces

I just love taking apart old jewelry and organizing all my beads by color. I just loved making these choker necklaces and then married them with vintage jewelry!







Friendship Bracelets

I can't get enough of friendship bracelets! So many designs and color choices, mix, match, trade!! I paired them up with some vintage jewelry...so much fun!!

Permanent Botanicals





I enjoyed creating these paper flowers to decorate my jewelry displays for a show. In fact, my customers enjoyed them so much, they purchased them along with my jewelry!

Paper Flowers














I love love making these flowers from vintage millinery fabric and paper! I've given them as gifts to accompany my vintage jewelry.
