Three Necklaces

I love when I get to do custom orders. Its gives me a chance to stop what I may be doing at the time and take someone else's memories and make them into new unique pieces that they can enjoy. Recently I did just that with a customer who lives in Illinois. She had several of her mother's pieces and wanted me to make three necklaces that were going to be passed onto family members. So I did and I am so pleased with how they turned out. She recently messaged me that she loved them. So of course I am thrilled that she trusted me enough to turn her memories into one of a kind pieces that will make new memories.
a look into the creative process :)

these are vintage earrings and a vintage pearl necklace. So beautiful together.

Vintage earrings meet the vintage pin. You are going to be beautiful together :)

When I saw this cameo pin I knew exactly what I needed to do with it. It is so beautiful!!


Swooning!! Can't you see it Being worn by Lady Mary on Downton Abbey :)

For the Love of Hankies

So, these beauties are headed to Country Living Ohio!!! And I am so so excited!! They are actually tagging along with modernjune and I couldn't thank Kelly enough for her kindness in letting my hankie necklaces be apart of her amazing set up. And you heard it right inside the glass are pieces of vintage handkerchiefs. I don't know about y'all but I carry a hankie. It was one of my grandmothers which gives me a sense of nostalgia. Honestly a small love affair with them :) So with that said I found several of them at an estate sale. Some were not in the best condition. But that didn't matter because I took the best parts of them and made them the star attraction in these necklaces. I am so obsessed with making them right now.
Can you imagine the lady who embroidered this piece of the hankie. So sweet!! I didn't feel bad cutting into it because it was riddled with holes. But no matter because the sweetest piece now has a life as a necklace bound for new journeys. I will be making more of these for my etsy shop so stand by and if you are in the Ohio area stop by moderjune's booth to scoop one up.

A Space With Friends

Ok for a while now I have been thinking about having a fixed space at an antique mall. No tent or fighting the elements. Just a nice fluffy clouds in the sky space. With that said I am not alone in this endeavor Jenni and Tiffin are my partners. Which enabled us to have a bigger space and feed off of all our similar aesthetic. So the booth is located at The Bone Yard on Raymond Hill in Newnan, Ga.

It is such a lovely place full of very beautiful booths and unique pieces. My jewelry is there, vintage clothing, and happy to say furniture pieces that I have repurposed. The other gals have an array of amazing art, jewelry, lamps, furniture, home goods, etc...... to sum it up yummy warm your heart goodies.;) Plus we will be constantly changing things up and keeping it fresh.
I call this the vintage wall. I have so much stuff and just sticking to one wall is a good test for me:) Have to excuse the photos the light was really off.

I love that I can do a bit of repurposing of furniture. The table is mine but that amazing headboard/ foot board is Tiffin's

jenni's amazing art!! Could you just fall over for that white door!!! I love it!!
