Hi All!! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.
I wanted to share a new line of jewelry with you
that I just put up in my shoppe.
It's called "Simple Vintage".
I think it is the perfect name for these very simple,
very easy to wear pieces.
I love these vintage metal buttons. I have mounted them to a scalloped
edged jewelry mounting and hung them from a beautiful
oxidized sterling silver satellite chain.
These simple bracelets are perfect alone or layered with others.
I have taken vintage rosary crosses and accented them with
natural stone beads. They are finished off with a magnetic closure
for really easy wearing.
This is just a sampling of my new line "Simple Vintage".
I hope you like it. I have more pieces coming.
Please stop by my shoppe to see these and many other

Happy Friday and happy weekend everyone!!
So, as many of you know, besides my jewelry etsy shoppe
I have another etsy shoppe that feeds my creative needs.
It is called
I have just finished a new line of decorative french
decor bottles and I wanted to show them to you all!
I am just in love with them!
I use many of my vintage jewelry findings to adorn
these sweet decor pieces.
In addition, I have made a line of decorated votive holders
with a little french theme. The holders are all mercury glass
and take a standard tea light. When lit it flickers through the image
on the front of holder and is just so pretty.
All of these and many more of my handmade things
can be found here.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will visit

Life can be so unbearably busy. I/we have so many things going on day after day
that I truly cannot manage to squeeze much more in to each day.
Blogging is one of the things that always suffers. I am so envious of
all of you who some how manage to put a new post up every single day.
I wish I could. I won't even get into my crazy life of school, volunteering,
my son's hockey, creating and designing my jewelry, photographing, editing,
writing copy, meal planning, appointments, snow storms....ok, I think
I just did get into my crazy life! Well, my hat is off to all of you who
can blog every one to two days!
I have some new designs up in the shoppe for you to see.
These razzle dazzle earrings are made from vintage brass findings. I have
hand wired amazing and extremely old roman coins. They are over ten centuries
old! The gorgeous colored sparkles are tiny chalcedony, London blue topaz
and citrine gemstones. I really love these.
The center piece on this necklace is a vintage Infant of Prague religious medal
that I have surrounded with old rhinestone necklace links. It hanges from an old brass
rosary center and a strand of restrung gorgeous aqua blue vintage rosary beads.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day I designed this necklace. The pendant is
a wonderful old dress clip. The necklace is made up of old brass jewelry links,
aged brass chain, green rhinestone flower shaped jewelry findings
and stunning 1920's beveled green cut glass links in their
original settings. Each link is exquisite!
These are also perfect for the season as emerald green is the color
to wear. These are beautiful vintage former clip on earrings that I have
removed the backings from and hung them from pyrite and pearls with a
very old rhinestone set rondelle in the middle.
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week.
If any of you would like to share with me how you manage
to fit blogging into your schedule everyday I would really
love to hear! I could use some helpful tips!!
