I discovered Janet Waldrop’s amazing vintage jewelry line, Skip 2 My Lou, at last year’s Marburger Farms show. Such a great artist, certified jeweler, and terrific story. She sources vintage buttons, pins, jewelry and takes them apart to make current jewelry.
Many of the parts and pieces she uses are found at the Paris flea markets. She has Victorian cameos, French enamel pieces, and interesting geological fragments.
I adore the pieces that I brought home and I received many compliments. I wanted to share Janet’s talents with my friends so I loaded up with treasures during my trip last month:
Each item comes with a name and story on the most adorable old photographs that spotlight the history of the pieces. There truly is something for everyone with many motifs represented. Here is a charming nautical pendant and a pair of earrings featuring mother of pearl horses.
These pieces make me smile every time I see them!
