I don’t often sell my work. I’m not sure why, other than the fact that so many times when I’m creating I attach sentimental memories to the piece, remembering loved ones who have passed and happy times with them and then I can’t part with it.
This piece does hold those special memories. As I created it I remembered the craft shows that I used to do with my Mom. We would buy big lots of metal charms and vintage style findings and create jewelry together. I also remember my Aunt June who was the instigator behind us doing this. She traveled California to a variety of quilt and antique market shows to sell her wares.
With vintage so popular and some of those findings being either hard to find or downright expensive, I wanted to provide all my followers a way to cut the cost, increase their creativity and perhaps remember great times.
This is one of my latest pieces I am offering at my Etsy Store – Sweet Antiq’s – Please take a moment to check it out – it really needs a good forever home!
