Hollywood Glitz Art Deco Jewelry Video

Hello Everyone, I am back from my extended Vacation and I have so many exciting things to share with you !

I would like to Begin with this Video of Fantastic Art Deco Jewelry I have acquired during my vacation. We traveled quite a lot this year and I came across some of the most beautiful Art Deco Era Jewelry I have ever seen ! Can you imagine these were made to be thrown away? Maybe that is why they are not always easy to find.

Loads of sparkling rhinestones and vibrant enameling make these pieces a must have for any collection !

Visit my shop CarriersCozyCottage for more details.

Thanks for stopping by !

Oooh La La Vintage Gloves

Meet Lou Deeley !
Recently Lou purchased a pair of Lovely Vintage Pink Sheer Gloves from
my Shop.
I often wonder when people purchase my items, what they do with them, so you can imagine how tickled I was when Lou wrote to me and included a picture of herself modelling these Lovely Gloves.
Lou is a student at Exeter University in the U.K. She enjoys doing freelance Modelling in her spare time.

Thanks again Lou !
Please visit her site for more of her fantastic photo's.

Model Mayhem

Check back often for more features !

I invite all my customers to show me how they have used the Vintage items they have acquired from me.

Mothers Day Gifts !

Mothers Day !

A time of year to Honor our Mothers and show them how much we Love & Appreciate them.

I made these Lovely Vanity Potpourri Lady Jewelry Holders/Pin Cushions with Mothers in mind.

I even gave one to my Mom this year. I sent it early, because we live so far away and we never know what tomorrow will bring.

Each of these Ladies are Vintage, but with small damages and they are no longer considered high quality Collector Items.

I feel they still have so much beauty that they deserve to be given some TLC and repurposed into useful items.

First I put some Rose or Jasmine Potpourri inside them and then I created their pin cushion bustles or hat's with vintage hankies or fabric, stuffed with new fiber fill and then embellished each one with vintage jewelry pieces, trims and rhinestones.

I have added my very own One Of A Kind Swarovski Pin to each one as well as various Pearl Pins.

For more Details on these Ladies or to Purchase please Visit my Shop !
