Shop Talk...Vintage Jewelry


We are so excited to have fabulous vintage jewelry in the store with excellent prices.  We are carrying a new designer line...My Mother's Buttons.  

Her story is so sweet...

In the bottom of an old chest sat my Mother's careworn sewing basket. Inside was a wonderful box of buttons. Each button told a tale significant of its time. I have such fond memories as a child of my Mother teaching me to count using buttons and how they served as wonderful chocolate bits and nuts for my imaginary cookies.

When my Mother's buttons were passed down to me, they were too beautiful and cherished to keep hidden in a box. I chose to enjoy them through jewelry which is how "My Mothers Buttons" came to be. I now collect antique and vintage buttons from around the world, which date back as far as the early 1800's, to create one of a kind jewelry and accessories.


And the best part...just in time for Valentine's Day!

The house...

Vintage Jewelry By Neely Phelan and an Awesome Giveaway

Vintage...this term is used a lot today...


The correct use of the word is to identify the year when wine was made...

The common use of the updated term describes something that is old enough to be fashionable again...not quite antique but very desireable...


Vintage jewlery is and always has been very desireable...

Vintage to Neely Phelan...this very talented jewelry designer means not only desireable but unforgettable..

After designing jewelry for a retail department store for 3 years, she left in 2005 to start a family. During the time she was at home she found her niche in the jewelry world...Vintage! 

We are thrilled to introduce you to Neely...

"I love to take antique and vintage treasures and design them into timeless one-of-a kind piecessays Neely. I love to create pieces that have history behind them and will tell a story from the past.

I design all the pieces by myself in my studio/playroom in my house, usually after the kids go to bed! It is my escape from reality sometimes. I love getting creative and coming up with new ideas. I am a wife and a mom of 3 young boys during the day and a jewelry designer by night! I admire anything old and unique. I love revamping vintage jewelry into one of a kind pieces that tell a story."

"I love to create pieces that have history behind them and will tell a story from the past. My desire is to transform the forgotten into the unforgettable!!"

Neely's one of a kind vintage pieces are fabulous.  We are so fortunate to showcase her recent designs in our online shop for the next 30 days.
