i decided to combine items from both my jewelry shop kathiroussel.etsy.com and my vintage shop 5gardenias.etsy.com with a preview of pieces handmade and collected right on time for holiday gift giving!
from my jewelry shop you will find: hand made necklaces, rings and a bracelet or two ( coming soon) --all made with sterling silver, fine silver, & copper-- and all are treated with patinas and finishes such as keum boo ( fused gold leaf), enamel, oxidation and depletion gilding-- details such as stitched coral seed beads and fresh water pearls are often added. many are one of a kind but there are also items that can be made to order--but hurry --made to orders need to be ordered by no later than december 10th to be ready for shipping and available for gift giving. the last date for shipping out will be december 19
my vintage shop is being stocked on an ongoing basis with lots of great holiday finds: antique ornaments, silverplate, crochet lace, kitsch, glasses, mugs-- plates, platters, bowls, stocking stuffers -- and two favorites --a cowboy survival holiday kit ( great stocking stuffer) and a tea party in a basket holiday kit.. please go and poke around
