My love of jewelry began as a small child. When I was a young girl, I would visit my grandmother and she would allow me to gently try on all of her sparkling crystal jewelry while sitting like a lady on her kitchen floor. It made me feel beautiful then, and it still does! Bijoux Creations has been a home-based jewelry design business since 2001.
When I began my unique business I had three goals in mind… I needed my jewelry to be affordable to every woman, I wanted to design accessories with outstanding quality and most importantly, I believed that each woman deserved to feel unique when wearing my jewelry. The only way to reach all of those goals was to create my line of jewelry using vintage treasures from the past! It is in many small quaint towns like my own – Charlton, New York, that I find many of the treasures that ultimately become the one-of-a-kind designs that you will see on this website and at every artisan show that I attend. (Please visit my calendar of events page!)
I began the creative process by antiquing all over the United States for high quality vintage jewelry pieces. During these treasure hunts I found favored jewelry that has been handed down from someone else’s grandmother that had maybe a broken clasp, was missing a bead or two or perhaps it was simply out dated. It is in my studio where I carefully take them apart and gently clean them in preparation to be redesigned, or up cycled. It is so exciting to find decorative and opulent, vintage crystals, lamp work, venetion glass, semi precious gem stones and much, much more. It is after that entire process that the old treasures from the past are brought back to life in my new contemporary jewelry pieces.
In addition to using everything vintage , I accent my designs with only the best… Swarovski Austrian crystals, AAA grade fresh water pearls and the highest quality silver and gold findings to complment my new original designs. Every piece of jewelry is strung on Beadalon® or pearlsilk thread to ensure long lasting quality. Each day it is a joy to resurrect vintage jewelry by creating new styles from old treasures.
A piece of accent jewelry can make a bold statement or provide just a hint of accessory. Sedate or extravagant, for office or opera, for giving or keeping, Bijoux Creations can fill all of your jewelry needs. I hope while shopping on my site you will find just the right piece to compliment you or that someone special! Thank you for shopping on the Bijoux Creations web site.
