As a young child I was mesmerized by my mom’s collection of old marbles she kept in a huge vintage pickle jar. I have been fascinated with glass ever since! Her vast collection of vintage jewelry has also been a key inspiration to the development of the Reminisce Jewelry line. After operating a vintage inspired boutique ‘Collections’ for ten years I decided to continue my Reminisce Jewelry line full time. I closed my shop in 1996 and have never looked back. Reminisce Jewelry captures vintage inspiration while maintaining contemporary classic appeal.
I enjoy mixing an array of materials including Austrian crystal, Bohemian glass, vintage glass, semi- precious stones, glass faux pearls, and Lucite. The metal I work with is raw brass which is plated to either an antiqued silver or brass ‘heirloom’ patina. Earring wires are Sterling Silver or 14/20 Gold-filled.
