:woohoo: Here's a sampling of the jewelry I make, :woohoo:
most of which is made with upcycled vintage materials.

Blossom Necklace by RetroRevivalBoutique
Blossom Necklace
One of my Etsy besties and I were both having a hard time w/ life recently, so we decided to
make each other pressies to cheer ourselves up! :)

The idea was kind of like retail therapy but without having to spend any money.

This necklace is what I made for her, and she made me an awesome layered bracelet that I wear all the time.

I made it by wiring filigree pieces together for a base, and then I wired on all sorts of vintage
beads, charms and doo-dads, all in shades of pink, blush, and cream.
It's super girly and sweet and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out (esp. since she LOVES it!). :meow:

Anyways, the moral of the story is that even if you're flat-broke-busted you can make something (rather it's jewelry or a drawing or a poem)
to cheer up a friend, and it might just cheer *you* up in the process. It worked for me! (^__^)

I've had a passion for shiny objects for as long as I can remember, so jewelry design
is a really natural thing for me to do.

I create my designs with upcycled / recycled beads, baubles. doo-dads, and broken vintage jewelry. I hate to think of something gorgeous going to waste when all it needs is a second chance at being fabulous. I mean, don't we all deserve a second chance? :meow:

I've been struggling on and off with bouts of...I dunno what to call it...uninspiredness? :raincloud:
But I've managed to power through and make a few pieces that I'm kinda sorta really proud of,
and it always cheers me up to make *something* even if I wind up taking it apart later...

I'm beginning to start to plan on starting my own website...eventually. In the mean time I'm just going to keep on
doing the best I can with my Etsy shop. :relax:
