Fellow Cleveland Women’s Fashion Examiner and Goodwill Huntingg blog author Stacey Kay has a talent for yet another creative outlet: refurbishing vintage jewelry and handbags. “I started designing upcycled jewelry a few months ago, following a steampunk jewelry workshop that my boyfriend and I attended at a little shop in Hudson last spring,” Stacey says. “I was really inspired by how old, broken jewelry can be redesigned into something unique and exciting, and since I am really into thrifting, vintage, and secondhand clothing I thought it would be the perfect complement. I bought a bag full of vintage and broken jewelry pieces at the Hartville flea market for only $10 and got started that week!”
With that kind of passion, her pieces were bound to turn out beautifully – and they have!
