I know this isn't really about designers, but I go to a lot of antique shows and you can find really amazing vintage jewelry there. This way you are reusing something that would end up getting thrown away. I actually make my own jewelry and I use a lot of vintage items from antique shows. Also, I found a lot of great old costume jewelry from grandma and I just use them in a new way. I sell my jewelry on etsy, my web address is www.etsy.com/shop/LovingLions Anything that says vintage is a reused item. Thanks for reading!
I also make jewelry! My main interest is wire wrap. I also love to deconstruct old jewelry and turn it into something new and wonderful! I have my things in three local stores and also am gearing up for a huge craft boutique season. I will check out your etsy store. Oh, there is a wonderful web site for jewelry artists, hosted by Eni Oken. It is www.jewelrylessons.com. People from all over the world post their creations, and create tutorials to sell. It is really cool and worth checking out.
