Vintage Norah…. the recrafted jewellery.

Vintage Norah….keeping me busy.

For those of you familiar with ‘ VintageNorah’, well, this is the recrafted side of things.

Sorting through Norahs gatherings we came across; in true Norah fashion: costume jewellery kept in a musical stool and ‘the box’. An heirloom made by her ‘cooper maker’ father quite possibly pre 1900’s when he was a young lad.

VLUU L200  / Samsung L200Many pieces are orphaned earrings, broken necklaces, general bits and bobs and I felt they should be given the chance to re-adorn and sparkle in beauty rather being hidden and left in the dark.

I include in each listing which parts are new and parts which are current, which is very often the findings.

I want to keep it simple, and each piece comes together only once I have sat, sorted,cleaned…hey presto, this just might look good!VLUU L200  / Samsung L200

Over the coming weeks ( or sooner) you shall begin to find them listed within the ‘Recrafted’ section of the shop.

Please enjoy and appreciate the individual love and uniqueness that has gone into the jewellery recrafted by Norahs youngest granddaughter.x

(That’ll be me!!!)

What a treasure……




For those of you unfamiliar with Etsy, one of the wonderful things you can do is curate a treasury of items which you pick from other etsy stores. It’s a wonderful feeling when this happens,mainly because it is something which has been chosen by someone you don’t know!

You feel recognised and worthy and it is almost confirmation that you must be doing something right!!!!

So, this week I am feeling very ‘treasured’. I have had items included in two treasuries.

Recrafted bracelet. Mulberry beading

One with a bracelet chosen from ‘Vintage Norah Recraft’ and the other was a knitting pattern from ‘Vintage Norah.’ ( Yes, you have read it right….there are two stores on there. I wasn’t able to list the recrafted jewellery in the same store as vintage because of it being handmade.

Original Wendy knitting pattern No 605. Lady's Jumper. Vintage 1950s era


This is one of the reasons why I’m feeling especially pleased with myself because the bracelet is one I have made.

Thank you ladies for the inclusion.

So, pat on the back for me and big ‘GO FOR IT’ if you have a crafty talent to offer!
