Vintage is more than old, more than used, more than an antique store. Vintage is history wrapped up in love.

About Us
Specifically unique artisan made jewelry along side costume and fine jewelry chosen from many eras, but targeting 1890 through the 1990s.

I had a friend several years ago whose garden I was walking through and she had only one kind of rose in her was a creamy yellow with the edges of the petals in bright cherry red...CHERRYLIPPEDROSES.

In my handmade pieces I love very personal and interesting components. I use all solid silver findings and beads mixed with stones I love. No two are alike. How boring would that be? I also love asymmetry. It adds interest, tension and drama, and the question begs to be answered: WHERE did you get THAT?! Global flair with American insouciance.
I am obsessed with beauty and find human artistic endeavors an everlastingly amazing universe. The items I purvey are bound to this belief. They were created by extraordinarily talented individuals. I have loved antiques and vintage for most of my life and have had the good fortune to come across many beautiful items. Lines and details and rarity attract me. Rarity in a world of the mundane. Gorgeous in the lines and details.

Open your heart before your purse. This is the definition of money well spent.

Rarity in a world of the mundane. Good design has no boundaries in either time or space.
