Tell us a little about yourself and what you sell.
I'm Jennifer and my jewelry and accessories (and soon clothing) is inspired by my love of vintage, antique items. I am particularly drawn to the Victorian, Gothic and Medieval style. My items are mainly One of a Kind and made with vintage materials such as rare Swarovski crystals, antique laces and trims, recycled vintage fabrics. Fantasy and Fairy Tales are also a huge inspiration to my work.
|Sunset Rare Vintage Swarovski Color Changing|
I've been fond of vintage fabrics and trim since I was a young girl searching through my grandmothers closets. Both my grandmothers did hand sewing and needle point. One worked as a seamstress for many years. I've collected vintage materials over the years as well as saved used clothing/materials to re-use and repurpose. I love creating something unique with old materials that simply can't be found anymore. Customers get something unique and one of a kind. This is rare in a world full of so much mass produced items and waste.

Getting wonderful feedback from happy customers. That makes my day! I also really love meeting other sellers and being part of supportive teams in the Etsy community.
|Vintage Crystal Rhinestone and Pearl Bracelet|
I get a lot of my inspiration from movies, books, researching vintage garments and costume design. I also keep track of fashion trends, and watch what people are wearing, weather it's celebrity style, or people on the street.
