My First Sale!

My first sale is still a hazy dream come true.  This summer I began hunting for abandoned treasures, including antique lockets, old vintage Chanel chain, rare charms, chandelier crystals, watch chains and other resurrected finds.  I reworked them into one-of-a-kind necklaces and charm bracelets.  

One day one of my boyfriend's friends came over to our place to say hi.  She is a buyer for a retail chain store, Tyler's.  I showed her my designs and she insisted on buying this one.  It can be worn as a bracelet or necklace that wraps around twice. At the time I was still working on my Etsy store and had not finished photographing or pricing my pieces.  I was so thrilled that she love it so much that I gladly sold it to her.  

Soon after I launched my etsy store called Vintage Rehab, www.vintagerehab.etsy.com.  I sold 6 items in the first month!

I absolutely loove this...not sure what to call it...hybrid necklace/bracelet. I wear it both ways and get compliments on it both ways! Being a buyer, I see jewelry at Markets and have yet to find something so unique. I was very excited to get to be Stacey's first customer. I can't say enough about the coolness of her jewelry designs.
