New products: map tiles, vintage jewelry and metal prints

I have a lot of work lately so although I opened up the site to the public, I haven’t had time to add to the mere 40 products in the store. By the time I’m done with my day job, I have no daylight to take photos of my new items! Last night though, I finally got a little light, enough for a few new handmade jewelry items, vintage jewelry pieces and accessories.

Bogota, Colombia Vintage Map Glass Tile Necklace

Several new Map tiles were added – places more obscure than Paris and Boston at the moment. I always like the places less trampled myself and there is plenty of “Paris” memorabilia out there already.
Some of the new places include: Trinidad, Cyprus, Bogota, Caracas, Rhodes and Puerto Madryn Argentina.

I also added quite a few vintage pieces I’ve been collecting over the years. Pieces from my Skeleton Key collection and several original and rare pieces I’ve found in the darkest corners of antique shops around the country. My Skeleton Keys are many, so there will be more pieces over time and I have tons of vintage jewelry that I will be reworking over the next few weeks and adding to the shop.

Check out some of the new vintage additions here.

 

Prints:

I recently discovered that I can print my photos on metal – which to me is amazing and for many of my photos, extremely appropriate. These pieces will be wall art quality, ready to hang and will last a lifetime! I’m excited at the prospect of something display worthy with no need for the customer to go out and find their own frames or mats. I’ll be coming up with a few options for wall art quality pieces as time goes on, but it definitely begins with METAL!

Over the next few days I’ll be adding prints to the shop with options like canvas, box print, metal print, and several popular sizes.

Metal Frame Details:

Fine Art Metals are made of brushed aluminum boxes 1″ deep and can be easily mounted with the hanging brackets on the back of the aluminum box. The ready-to-hang brackets are positioned vertically and horizontally to meet both image orientations.
