I am a self taught designer. I have a 25 year collection of vintage charms, clasps, beads, pearls, metals, glass, crystals, chains, etc. I repurposed these amazing treasures into one-of-a-kind jewelry. I have ahd a dream of opening my own shop for decades. Two years ago I did it. I have had children in my teens, 20's, 30's & 40's! I never let go of the idea that if I followed my passion I would be very successful and famous! Almost :) I love what I do and am told it shows in my work, I love people so they love my sweet adorable teeny brick & mortar shop winnie & belle.,Midland Park, NJ . I am so excited because I finally launched my web site! winnieandbelle.com.
People freak out because they are treated like humans here and not just a number. It is a chick out out and even men feel comfortable in my shop.
I have an ongoing toletries drive because I found out that in Camden NJ there is only one shelter where homeless women are able to shower! Just about to deliver the 3rd. 200lb. box!
You cannot keep it unless you give it away! Live life huge, Love large!
