Featured Artist: VintageKitschMagpie

The antiqued metal filigree against the bright plastics in VintageKitschMagpie's jewelry are eye candy to all who see! Try the Big Yellow Taxi necklace on for size! How NYC is that?

The artist says: "I have always been passionate crafting and art, and would spend summer holidays with my gran who encouraged me to paint and sew. I attribute my creative side to her.
I basically have 8 jars which are jam packed full of jewellery bits and bobs that I have collected. Every now and again I shake out the contents of the jars and see what I can come up with.
I'm like a magpie for anything kitsch and vintage (hence the name, of course).
I live in Northern England, where it rains pretty much all the time. I love nothing more than watching some Brit comedy with a nice cup of tea and a couple of gingernut biccies (which are, of course, the best dunking biccies around)
I like to mix vintage metallics with kitsch plastic for really cute pieces. I'm a big fan of individuality, and aim to produce limited numbers or one offs of each piece of jewellery I make. Nothing is mass produced, so you are literally getting something that no-one else will be it should be!"
