Vintage Travel Keepsakes...


Bonjour compagnons de voyage! I have been quite busy this past week gearing up my local locations for the 4th of July, and working on my latest jewelry pieces. My designs this week took on a French travel theme after I started sorting through my extensive collection of vintage travel pieces and souvenir bracelets. I just love the thought of having a momento from the past that represented a special journey that someone took long ago. It seems as though, a once in a lifetime travel journey becomes so much more special as the years pass by. Such as my previous years trips to Europe. I hold such a special place in my heart for those wonderful days of wayfaring and I absolutely cherish my special travel keepsakes that I acquired on my journey.




Here are some newly designed pieces to stir the memory of your own special journey...



Dreaming of Paris Bangle...




...French Compass, Cross, and Cameo Necklace...




Souvenir French Cathedral Earrings...






Souvenir French Crest Earrings...









...and a gorgeous old rhinestone encrusted hammered cuff.  All coming to Etsy tonight.
Does anyone have a special journey coming up in their future plans?
See you back here real soon and
Happy Creating!!!!
