Two Twisted Gypsies
New life is given to once treasured vintage items and found objects …..
We are a family of creative folk, who see the beauty and value of old-timey treasures. One day a mission to clean out my crafts closet, turned into “our” mission to create one of a kind repurposed jewelry. Not only is it rewarding to breathe new life into once treasured objects, but the hunt for new things to use in jewelry creations is a great way to unwind after a busy work week at our day jobs. We enjoy all the local flea markets, auctions, antique shops, and yard sales. It is so rewarding to create something new from something old.
