The decorative lettering from antique French business papers make lovely little monogram pendants, with glass cabochons acting as magnifiers.
Paired with brass findings and an antique filigree rhinestone bead, the monograms make beautiful personalized necklaces.
$35 per necklace of up to 3 monogram initials. Postage included.
Antique bird illustration pendants will be available at a later date.

We have been collaborating on a series of vintage postcards - handwritten script paired with animal engravings and other ephemeral odds and ends.
At present the postcards exist solely in the digital realm, but we hope that a suitable printing option will be found soon ...

When recovering from surgery one has lots of time on one's hands.
Time to contemplate antique French prayer lockets.
Je veux passer mon ciel a faire du bien sur la terre.
Time to oxidize lengths of sterling chain. To choose the peachiest shade of vintage Czech glass.
Time to loop vintage French medailles religieuse in varying shades of silver and pewter.
Time to twist wire. To secure hundreds upon hundreds of pearls and crystals and garnets.
Time to reflect.
I've missed you.
