One thing I really love to do is go to antique stores and search for vintage beads, silver or something for the boutique.

In the fall while I was in New York visiting my daughter at college, we happened upon a fab antique store that had vintage Murano glass beads and Bali silver beads. I purchased them to sell at the boutique. Below is a pair of earrings I created using some of the Bali sterling beads I purchased. They made a stunning piece of jewelry that can be worn every day or on special occasions.

Re-fashioning vintage or outdated costume or artisan jewelry is a wonderful way of giving the piece new life and freshness. We work with vintage Swarovski crystals, Bali Silver and Family Heirlooms to re-create pieces that are a joy to wear again and again.

We also have a great selection of vintage beads for sale at Praha Beads and Jewelry.
