Vintage Iron on Monograms & French ads....

So I found these iron on monograms at a little antique store in North Ga. the last time I was up at my Aunt's get-away-from-it-all cabin in the mountains. I knew what I'd use them for the minute I laid eyes on them. Getting around to actually doing it was another matter. I think I could make jewelry for a year or two without leaving my studio, but where's the fun if you can't hunt down interesting, cool new stuff? I would go crazy. I get an adrenaline rush everytime a new idea hits. The time has finally come for these sweet letters, and these are very limited as they are the real deal. By that, I mean "really old". I lost several due to fragile, tearing paper. I do have several more than these, probably 20-25 total. Some are upper case, some lower. Some are bigger (approx. 1") and some are just larger charms (7/8") If you're interested in a letter you don't see here, let me know, and I'll see what I have. I hope to have them all added to the website soon, but I also know I don't always get to it as fast as I plan on. The reverse of these is maps of Paris. They aren't vintage. They are the maps we used while we were there. That's why you see some with circles on them because it was on our scheduled visit.
Secondly, there are vintage French replica ad jewelry. These are each one different sizes. I will, hopefully, have these posted individually on the website soon.

Happy Spring!

Meet Juliette...

Isn't she gorgeous?? I found her recently in an antique/boutique shop, and new I had to have this for displaying jewelry in my studio. It would be awesome at shows too, so I may be brave and take her out. It's seriously heavy though....
I have been making some new designs, as well as a few new additions coming....I'll be posting those soon. Happy almost Spring!
