I’ve been nuts about all types of jewelry for most of my life and I’ve been collecting vintage jewelry for a number of years now. Vintage jewelry designers were very interesting people and I find vintage jewelry designs and materials inspiring and intriguing. I’m a sucker for glitz and glamour and those pieces abound in vintage jewelry, too. For the last several month, I’ve been part of an Etsy vintage jewelry group called Vintage Jewelry Sellers on Etsy. I’ve gotten a lot of new ideas about marketing and I’ve also learned more about vintage jewelry from the other members.
Currently I have quite an assortment of interesting vintage designs in my Etsy shop at www.dianakirkpatrickart.etsy.com , along with my bridal and wedding designs and my own original art jewelry pieces. Here’s a link to one example: http://www.etsy.com/listing/98295148/vintage-light-blue-rhinestone-brooch
