Starting something new

Hello friends, today I’m very pleased to share  some great news with you! For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to create a fine jewelry line in addition to my antique glass bead jewelry. As always started out with a few trinkets picked up here and there while I was out antiquing and looking for beads. Before I knew it, I had amassed a few of these pretty bits. I’ve finally made the jump and I’m very pleased to present the first one of many many more, I hope.

  
 I saw this gorgeous antique stick pin and immediately loved it. Of course I know that in this day and age, stickpins are virtually impossible to wear but something so pretty deserves a second lease in life.  During the height of their popularity, stickpins were  a way for a jeweler to show his skill.  As such, many of these stickpins are highly collectible, tiny pieces of wearable art. This particular  one dates back to the late 19th century and has sapphires and little seed pearls. 

  

  Here it is in its newest incarnation as a ring! A gorgeous and regal addition to your jewelry box.

  1. Hey, I really like it’s reincarnation! I love your shop, too. As you know, I have amassed quite a collection of beads as well. I will probably sell a couple of them in my shop when I open it, and on my pop-up table at the Flea Market. See you again, soon.
