It’s no secret that one of the best ways to showcase vintage and antique Sterling jewelry is to simply give it a thorough cleaning!
I have been diving headlong into the Rs this past year and plan on continuing this joyful journey for awhile. My Rs include repairing, restoring, and re-purposing Sterling.
Adding my personal touch to these neglected (yet brilliantly designed) pieces gives me tremendous pleasure and sense of accomplishment. I adore the sheer weight and impeccable quality these solid beauties possess!
These gorgeous Danecraft, Beau, and Jewelart Sterling items were created to be cherished, worn, and passed on through the generations. My hope is to share them with others, so they too, can appreciate these fine pieces of metallic art.
But first, they need a bath!
PS: My first shows of the year are in March- full spring schedule available soon!

I found this very interesting (and substantial) vintage Sterling cuff bracelet online. I was a bit disappointed when I received it. Although it wasn’t terribly expensive, considering the solid Sterling is 5.75 inches long and over an inch wide, I didn’t care for the color of the stone and noticed the setting was incorrectly soldered and crooked!
So thanks to my trusty bench grinder and favorite ball-peen hammer, I was able to transform and create a distinct new piece. A touch more polishing and it’s good to go!!
