Annamarie creates adorable accessories under the name of our artist group, Flower Girls Gifts. The common thread which ties the items together is the use of vintage costume jewelry and felt as embellishment. The collection includes pincushions and pins.

Brigid and Annamarie have been designing jewelry under their Windy City Jewelry brand since 1995. Windy City Jewelry features vintage glass bead and crystal jewelry from 1920-1960 which has been transformed into unique designs which are wearable today.  Each piece is one of a kind.  The vintage materials are accented with new sterling silver findings and Swarovski crystals.  Vintage costume jewelry pieces such as dress clips and earrings may also be incorporated into the designs.

 

Necklaces with Vintage and Antique Dress Clip "Pendants"

 

The jewelry is formed using a combination of wire-wrapping and stringing, which gives it a delicate look but is very sturdy.  Each piece is individually handmade with the greatest attention to detail and the highest quality materials at very reasonable prices.  Retail prices range from $12.00 to $120.00.
