Lady in Hat Tintype Brooch
Little Kids Tintype Brooch
Vintage purse repurposed with vintage laces, brooch and material. 
Cool vintage purse all dressed up with lace, a large vintage rhinestone belt buckle and a vintage porcelain violet brooch. 
Necklace made from silver wire shaped into a freeform nest, blue bead eggs, antique glass drop and silver swallow.  I made this necklace because I am always glad to see the birds return in the spring and build their nests in our birdhouses.

I make jewelry out of antique tintype photos, antique and vintage belt buckles and pieces of vintage and antique orphaned and broken jewelry.   I also love to take well preserved vintage purses and upcycle them with vintage laces, jewelry pieces and other materials.
