Spotlight: This just in!

Pardon our break in updates; We have been CONSUMED in early fall festivities and enjoying the season change! Nonetheless, we are excited to share some of the artists that we have been receiving the past month.

For starters, a warm welcome to Megan Stacy of San Francisco, CA!

Megan's gorgeous designs feature 22k gold plated ear hooks & chains (while a few are antique brass) All of her leather is also repurposed from vintage skirts. How cool is that?

We are also super delighted to welcome the lovely Ali Heiss of Amarilo Designs!
(Diamond Bar, California)

Her jewelry is simple but unique, beautiful but strong, and delicate but sturdy. Amarilo will never sell anything that is less than perfect in its vision, and concentrates on using quality materials such as argentium sterling silver, AAA gemstones, and fresh water pearls.

She strives to provide beautiful designs created with integrity and quality, while providing great service to all individuals who want to stand out from mass produced accessories. (you go Ali! We couldn't agree more!)

Ali is Korean American, and is fluent in Spanish. She loves People who have "smile lines" on their faces, her Nikon camera, designing jewelry (of course), and finding AAA gemstones!
She dislikes mass produced costume jewelry.

Next in line, Amy Neiwirth from Columbus, OH:

Sweet Stella Designs is the brainchild of artist and educator Amy Neiwirth. Amy's Tiny Treats are hand-sculpted from polymer clay. Each piece is hand painted and unique. Also check out her map jewelry she made custom for our area!

And last but certainly not least, meet Louisville native Jules Barnett, now residing in Madison, Alabama. Her beautifully upcycled ties and vintage gems make such an incredible addition to our shop. Happy to have ya, Jules!

"Being a wife and mother of a toddler, I know the hardships of trying to be stylish while still dressed in "machine washable" clothes that can withstand the playground, while remianing dressed up enough for lunch with friends. So, I have created this line of jewelry to not only dress up a white t-shirt and jeans, but to also go with your favorite black dress for a night out on the town. I have scoured thousands of pieces of vintage jewelry to find items I believe to be stylish and timeless."
