2018 Early American Life awarded artist!

Considered THE preferred jewelry vendor for living historians, reenactors, weddings, proms, special occasions, movies, costumers, author book signings, TV shows, everyday wear, or just for fun!  

If having your wedding at a historic site - consider wearing some of my jewelry as something "old" or even "new."  I always give a great discount as my gift to you.
