Heritage Fair Woodlands Marburg

What a beautiful day we had on Sunday at Woodlands, for the Handmade Expo. This market saw the launch of the new Vintage Visions silver range. Some pictures below to preview the new items.

All created from Vintage Silver. Yes, silver teaspoons and serviette rings. Including the quirky collectors type. Also this market saw the introduction of a new upcycled textile range be added to the Vintage Visions family. A range of new scarves made from vintage woollen blankets and retro curtain fabric. Both items proved to be a great success.

Something old is new again

As some of you may know I have been learning and experimenting using old epsn silver and metals, to create new jewellery pieces. I hope to have some new pieces ready for our next market event on Sunday 17 May.

The piece photographed (left) is a pewter cuff bangle created from an old 70s pewter trophy sourced in a second hand shop.
The piece had some beautiful engraved worked around the top that was screaming out to be recycled and celebrated again.

A cuff bange and matching earrings created from engraved pieces of trophy.
Below: the left over trophy, just waiting to be made into something new!!!
