Antique, Vintage, and Semi-precious Handmade Jewelry by Kelly – FOR SALE

I’ve been repairing antiques, jewelry, and textiles for years.  I’m as handy with a needle as a pair of pliers.  I’ve always had this nagging feeling that I could make some of the things that I see for sale.  After going to a lot of craft shows with friends, this feeling was pretty much confirmed.

Everything listed below is something that I made from items I’ve purchased, jewelry I’ve owned and repurposed, or things that have been given to me by people like my mother who were no longer wearing them and wanted them to be put to good use.  There are also some vintage or antique items that I’ve picked up over the years that I’m selling as-is.

You’ll see that I’m using a lot of the same stones right now.  Partly that is because it takes money to make money and we don’t really have any at the moment.  As a result I’m working with what I have and what I can afford.  As I sell some items I’ll be able to afford more raw materials.

I’ve broken down everything into two main categories, sterling and gold plate.  Unless I explicitly tell you otherwise nothing that is gold is solid gold.  As I’m also working with vintage pieces and sourcing my findings from a lot of places, if you have a nickel allergy assume that nothing is nickel free.

IMPORTANT:

If you’d like to buy something I accept payments via PayPal only unless you happen to know me IRL in which case you can pay me in person.  Please post questions as a comment so that everyone can read them here.

Postage: I ship USPS usually on Mondays and Tuesdays.  The first item is $3.00 and each item after that is an additional $0.25 unless specifically stated otherwise.  If you want delivery confirmation, insurance, or other services they will cost extra and I will need an email stating that before payment.  Ditto for shipments outside of the continental 48 United States.

Drop: this is the measurement from the top of the french hook or the post of the earring to the bottom.  In other words, from where it enters your ear to the bottom.  I provide this so you know how long the earring is.  Not everyone likes really long earrings (I do.)  I also provide a drop measurement for pendants.  This is from the bale top or point where it hangs from the chain to the bottom.

Unless stated otherwise pendants shown photographed with a chain do not include the chain.

Also, I take custom orders.  Just ask, I’ll see what I can do.  You can also visit my Etsy store here.

  1. I’ll take the blue coin pearl earrings if no one else has claimed them 🙂 I agree with Jen about making something to order . . . . what about a matching necklace in blue coin pearls? 😉 I’d pay good $$ for it!!
    Let me know how I do the Pay Pal thing for you for the earrings. xo

    1. They’re yours. I will update the page in a moment. And, I can make a matching necklace. Looks like I’ll need some more coin pearls! (That, btw, is excellent!) Don’t worry about PayPal. This just means we’ll have to have dinner sometime soon.
