I am very intent on conserving and making the best of resources we have. I have become an avid and creative recycler, and have learned to repair, restore and restyle clothing, jewelry, and other items. I have been collecting some very nice costume jewelry, which I have been restyling and restoring. There are a lot of beautiful pieces that have plenty of wear left. Much vintage costume jewelry was beautifully designed and made, and may just need a little TLC to make them wearable again.
