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.
Many 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!
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
Recently, I have got so excited whenever I see any of our items included in either a ‘treasury’ from Etsy or like today, one of the ‘earring bracelets’ I have made from Norahs ‘bits and bobs’!!! Included by Vintassion on facebook, for their ‘unique gift’ ideas.
It is such a nice feeling to be noticed.
I know it is all about promotion etc, etc,etc….but this is also about something being quite personal to me.
I know the background of the items and so of course there is the sentiment attached to each of them. How lovely this whole process is,sorting,listing,getting views,getting sales,communicating ( or sending a convo! that really tickles me),packaging,posting and then the wonderful ‘thank you’s ‘I have recieved from those who have purchased.
The other thing that really fascinates me, are the countries these items have been sent to.
Norah loved travelling and she got about quite abit, even in her later years…and so the travelling continues and here are just a few of the places that she now graces!!!
Uk, Florida, Hollywood, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, Sweden …..
Marvellous isn’t it? so, to use another term which tickles me ‘I shall keep you in the loop!’
Thank you everyone…lets see if we can take over the world from this very stormy Dorset corner of the UK! (yep, it’s hitting us quite bad as I blog!!!)
