How Do You Like Your Vintage Postage?

There are so many options when I am creating vintage postage stamp jewelry.... something for every taste.

Do you like your vintage 'dirty'? The necklace above is a postmarked 1973 stamp from Singapore and is stained, giving you the feeling the letter it carried went through some trials to reach its recipient.

The ladybird stamp here, is from the UK, and is heavily postmarked, so you clearly remember its origin as a postage stamp.

But I also have a large range of absolutely immaculate postage stamps for use in jewelry, these are free of markings so that you can concentrate on the beautiful image, this necklace features one of my grandmother's Polish postage stamps.

I am working on some images suitable for men's jewelry or cards for men, and some sets of stamps to sell in my store called Trains, Planes, and Automobiles... as well as some very historic sailing ships.

So how do you like it?

Hi Chez,

I have the most fun making these than anything else that I create.

I am guessing I have some catching up to do if you are on blog... perhaps you have a new post for me to read?

love back xoxox

Hi Starry,
They are gorgeous, and what a great idea to do gifts for the guys, it will give you a new section. Very good thinking.
