My New Vintage Line

I've been working on some new designs using vintage pieces and often taking what is old and making it new again.  These designs can be found in my Etsy Shop.



Pure Beauty Necklace


 This 20 inch vintage style necklace features a beautiful blue glass drop nestled in an antique style bead cap, surrounded by bead and brass charms and held together by antiqued brass chain with a swirly toggle clasp. To me it represents all things that are pure and beautiful: the sky, the ocean, a newborn baby!

Giving Pure Beauty as a gift? It will arrive at your door beautifully wrapped and ready for giving! And remember, there is always FREE SHIPPING at Zur Designs!



Prosperity


I've been thinking about the word Prosperity lately, maybe because it's graduation time; a time of promise, hope, and taking a path to one's dreams. I'm not talking about prosperity in terms of wealth really but in terms of other things that need to be in place in order to be truly prosperous...such as health, happiness, and approaching all of one's life with spirituality and creativity.

This 18" vintage style necklace with antiqued bronze accents, an up-cycled rich pearl, champagne swarovski heart crystal, and swarovski pearl accent means prosperity to me. It speaks of a richness that goes beyond financial gain and is more about the richness in one's life and one's heart.

Simple Elegance Vintage Necklace


I love these vintage pearls! The focal point of this piece is a vintage moss green pearl surrounded by a long and ornate vintage bead cap. A chandelier wrapped with a lucite flower and pearl hangs from one side and a charm made of vintage pearls in moss green and white hangs from the other side. These all hang from antiqued bronze chain and are tied together with a swirly toggle clasp. The necklace measures 17" and is sure to be a favored piece to accent your wardrobe all year long!

Mad Money Purse Necklace


This little purse locket is for all of us that grew up with parents who, every time we went on a date gave us mad money in case we wanted to end the date. My dad gave all five girls mad money consisting of twenty dollars and change for the pay phone! He also put the fear of death into any boy that came to take out any one of his girls!

Mad Money started with a sweet vintage purse locket and I added antiqued bronze, swarovski crystals and pearls, and Lucite accents mounted on beautiful antiqued brass chain and tied together with a lovely antiqued Tibet bronze swirl hook toggle clasp.


Giving Mad Money as a gift? it will arrive at your door gift wrapped and ready for giving. And remember, there is always FREE SHIPPING at Zur Designs! All products are lead free!

Dad could have used this pendant...and a cell phone! :)



Dog Tags


This 17" necklace combines vintage and contemporary. The vintage bead cap holds a fiery 24mm Swarovski Crystal Vitrail Teardrop pendant and sits side by side with a perforated brass tag pendant. The whole piece hangs on antiqued bronze chain and is held together with an antiqued bronze toggle clasp.

This pendant was designed to honor the soldiers and their families who are separated by time and distance.

Sunset Vintage Wire Wrapped Ring


The fiery red and orange lucite ball, surrounded by antiqued bronze vintage bead caps, and all wrapped together in antiqued bronze wire could only be called Sunset. And it's the kind of sunset where the sun turns to flame before daylight turns to night!

Sunset is a size 7 but I can customize a size just right for you!

Vintage Luminescent Pearl Wire Wrapped Ring


This vintage pearl has the look of an opal when it catches the light revealing patterns of color and sparkle. It is nestled in vintage antiqued brass wire to complete the old world look. This ring is a size 7 but I can custom design a size to make it perfect for you!
