Featured: Vintage Findings and More

Our featured studio of the week is "Vintage Findings and More" aka Linda.
"Vintage Findings and More" has the distinction of being one of two of the only supply shops in the Ajdjss Guild that showcases vintage and vintage style findings, beads, cameos, settings, pendants, filigrees, stampings, and charms.
I must admit that I just love browsing through this studio so very much because recently I have found myself in "a vintage state of mind". And not because I am 6 decades old.
What fun it is to look at some of the lovely, romantic, and charming jewelry supplies for creating vintage inspired jewelry.
Hey, that 's not all that is found in this wonderful studio. There are also some beautiful beads and even gemstones to discover here. So you really don't have to be in "a vintage state of mind" to shop here.
Linda, who has been a hairdresser for 30 years has been creating jewelry for about 4 years now. She says that she is very fortunate to be able to do all the creative things that she loves. And, she admits that she really loves hunting for beautiful beads and findings, being able to create with them, and being able to share them with other jewelry creators to use for their own masterpieces.
Enough said--let's feast our eyes on some of the treasures showcased in this studio:

Btw, "Vintage Findings and More" has just announced new shipping rates so get over there and check it out.
