Sweet Salvaged Designs.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I make many OOAK jewellery pieces using vintage and mixed metals like copper, nickle, brass and steel. I like using rosary beads, MOP pieces, old brooches, medals, lockets and various found objects for whatever I think works best for the particular piece I am working on at the time. You can see me at the Kalamunda markets, held once a month on the first Saturday of each month and various other venues that I will post about. You may email me at quilt@touch88.com.au for any inquiries.

Old bird cages.

just a couple of Victorian birdcages I have collected, nice white and chippy. The last one ( the biggest of the three ) I saw many reproduction ones in France, in various sizes as well, it is so disappointing when you find all these repro's and they flood the country with them.

I love your bird cages. I saw a shabby white bird cage at a thrift store for $7 yesterday. I was sooo tempted to buy it, but I couldn't think of where I'd put it :(
