I am the owner of Wingsofflutter studio on artfire. I make handmade jewelry using bits and pieces from the past upcycled just for you. Rings, necklaces, earrings, and bobbypins all made using repurposed and recycled vintage, with a few all new pieces. What once was old is new again!

I love making a variety of styles to fit different personalities. Whether you love the Victorian Era, the Hollywood Glam Era, the Housewives of the 50's, the Fun Easy going Hippie era of the 60's, or the Disco's of the 70's, you are sure to find something that you love at Wingsofflutter on artfire!
