So, according to Webster, the word “vintage” is mostly associated with the processes of wine-making. While I’m not going to argue that wine is indeed an interesting AND fun special interest, I believe that when it comes to jewelry there are so many more flavors to choose from!
This past week Michell and I experienced authentic vintage and we’ve brought it all back to the Carrollton store for all to see. Hours of work, piles of boxes, and pounds of dust later we have selected the best quality of authentic vintage findings, filigree, pendants, and bezels, and watch bits for you to choose from. Wonderful solid brass and copper galore!
My dream came true as I poured through boxes and boxes of antique watches to find the best of the best! Gorgeous Swiss made pocket watches for you to adorn your Steampunk-inspired jewelry with or just to admire for their intricate and beautiful parts. Oh, and did someone say scarabs? Oh YES, that’s right…I did!
Come see it all in the Carrollton store soon, before it’s all gone!
