In an age when computer design is a click away and most products are mass produced, it's something special to have a one-of-a-kind handcrafted item. All my hand made vintage assemblage jewelry is a labor of love (and of shopping) ! Hours are spent searching swap meets, estate sales, vintage shops and antique stores for interesting pieces from the 1920's - 1970's to reassemble into new sophisticated wares that are vintage, yet modern for today's fashion.
For me, the options are limitless, and while I've added more sophisticated objects into the mix, I still find that the combination of found and fabricated material is most amazing and distinct. Taking assemblage jewelry to the next level by incorporating custom photo charms with your photos is a unique way to design family keepsakes and makes the most personalized gift.
Charm hunting is only half the fun. Making epoxy photo charms or under glass framed in silver solder is most rewarding. Combining all these beautiful elements expresses an alchemy of design. I hope to create a charming treasure for you! Visit my shop here.
Aloha, and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Susan and I am one of the lucky people who call Hawaii my home. I moved here in 1985 from my home state of Texas to marry the man of my dreams and live a charmed life. We've raised two boys into fine young men who also call Hawaii home.
Besides making custom photo charms and repurposing vintage jewelry, my day job (for 25+ years now) is in the airline industry. It has connected me to so many amazing friends and enabled me to see the world where I always find new inspiration and ideas. But...I've always longed to use my God given artistic gifts and talents. I need to make beautiful things. It is my outlet and my joy to create.
