Spotlight on EtsyRain

Re-purpose, reuse, recycle - Entangle! Julia's jewelry is such testament to her love of making the old look new again. Old stretchy watchbands, enameled flower broaches, cameo pendants, buttons, charms, and chains all find their way into her hands and become fodder for her passion.

I sat next to Julia at an outdoor craft fair late last year. I watched as the few freezing patrons of the fair shivered past her booth, stopped, and noticed a piece. Comments would fly - "My mother had a pair of earrings just like this when I was little." Of course now that pair of earrings had be come just a single and found a home as a lovely addition to one of her eclectic necklace charms.

In a world, or maybe region, where the idea of a greener approach to living and vintage chic is oh so popular Julia's prices are a steal! Please take a look at some of the places you can find her, starting with her Etsy shop, Entangles. She also shares information on her blog about other crafters who have focused their talents on "up-cycling". You know what they say - "one woman's trash is another woman's treasure". Julia is making treasures for us all!
