Playing with Vintaj pieces

New Vintaj pieces
Have you ever bought any Vintaj pieces before? They have such an array of eye candy, and I've been wanting them for such a long time. I wanted to buy them wholesale, so a friend and I put in an order together to make the minimum amount, ummm, okay, over that amount!

I was so excited to get the pieces. They have such a variety, and great quality. No, I'm not working for them, but you'd think so at this point, huh? The bird piece comes flat, I bent it around that amazing pearl.
And the circle scroll on the earrings came flat as well. I just love the way they turned out. I can see an assortment of these little guys with different stones, and gems. Can't wait to experiment. Guess I should send these pics to Vintaj! LOL. Hope you like them!

Like them? They are beautiful!! Vintaj pieces may be lovely..., but it's what you do with them that makes these earrings and this necklace so amazing. Have fun with the rest. Be sure to show us all the results.

These are great, Riki! Especially the little birdy holding onto the pearl. What a great idea to go in with a friend to put in an order.

Yes, their pieces are indeed nice =) And, I have seen them popping up in Michael's and now in Hobby Lobby. How funny, I bought some just today! Great minds think alike Riki! LOL.

Love the bird hugging that gorgeous pearl! I just sent my sister-in-law a necklace created with a Vintaj dragonfly. They have so many beautiful pieces it's hard to resist them all! Looking forward to seeing more of your creations.

Greetings Riki! I love to work with Vintaj. Not only are they the best brass in the business but they are the NICEST people on the planet. I had the good fortune to meet Jess Italia Lincoln last summer and she invited me to a play day in Galena IL. That little town looks like a Hollywood backlot, so quaint and homey. And Jess and Rose and Wendy and Jeanne all treated me so well. I know that it is a lot to order wholesale...I usually bite that chunk off myself, but I have recently found a new local beady buddy and we are ordering together for the first time! Your designs are very pretty! I love the She Flies necklace.
Thanks for stopping by Treasures Found. I hope you will return for a visit again!
Enjoy the day!
