Magnifier Necklaces with Vintage Beads

I recently put together these magnifiers with some vintage beads and hung them off of black satin cord. Each of these is a neat little glass magnifying optical lens with one yard of black satin cord and a black organza bag. Perfect to hang around your neck or keep in your handbag. Great little item to use so you can see your project a bit better, to read the fine print or dinner menu, or to inspect jewelry or silver antiques.

We have these priced at $24.95 each. No two are alike. Handcrafted here in our own studio. Available in our Los Gatos shop or at Pretty Ribbons, our Etsy shop.

New Creations from Norma Dice

We introduced jewelry by Norma Dice in 2009. Norma is now 92 and still creating beautiful jewelry from her studio in Santa Cruz, California. Norma and her late husband Jim spent many years searching for treasures of the earth. They bounced around in their Jeep wagon, traveling all over the West digging for rocks. Norma and Jim shared their finds with the community -- at local fairs and in their back yard. Polished stones, geodes, agates and other precious finds. 

Norma taught herself to make jewelry from those treasures and still enjoys creating these little works of art a couple of decades down the road. To quote her: There is a whole lot of love that goes into each piece of jewelry. I like to look at it for a little while then pass it on. We are proud to offer a new collection of her one-of-a-kind pieces here at Vintages.

Our latest selection emphasizes the beach ... why not? Norma is from Santa Cruz, the ultimate Beachtown USA!
