A carefully curated collection of fun and fabulous vintage and artisan jewelry
About Houndhealer Studio
Our Service PledgeMy jewelry is carefully chosen with an eye toward beauty, craftsmanship and value. Each piece is viewed through a loupe so that I can give you as much information as I would want as a buyer. I do gently, and professionally, clean my items, need be. I do all of this to make sure that your shopping experience with me is nothing but stellar.
Returns are accepted so take a chance and try something on! Jewelry is much like clothing...it has to fit and feel good when you wear it.
I realize you have many options in shopping and appreciate the time you take to visit my shop. Please feel free to ask any questions. These pieces are my friends and I am happy to share their stories... and thank you for visiting Houndhealer Studio.
About UsI bought my first piece of vintage costume jewelry as a teenager and was hooked. I have not lost that passion for the beauty, mystery and craftsmanship of these treasured pieces. Not in decades. Not even a smidge.
I sold fine and costume jewelry in my retail store for over two decades and while I have enjoyed some lovely pieces, it is still the vintage jewelry that makes my heart sing. These pieces whisper stories of another life, dancing to Cole Porter, the scent of vintage gardenia, the satin lining of a cashmere coat.
I sold my store and now work in my sun-filled studio with my two rescue dogs.
Yes, that's where Houndhealer Studio comes from. I rescue jewelry. I rescue dogs. Not necessarily in that order.
Somewhere around 15 years ago I started re-crafting vintage jewelry into new pieces. When you have collected as long as I, there is a box of broken bits and bobs, orphaned earrings, little lovelies too dear to toss... I offer them a new life. Hopefully, new stories to tell.
Let me know if you have something you'd like to have re-worked into something new. I happily do commissions.
Thanks again for your time. It's nice to meet fellow devotees of vintage.
