LOVE VINTAGE BEADS

InSPIRATION

Passionate Jewelry maker and Collector- My passion began on the shores of Lake Michigan collecting beach glass with my Grandma as a child. 

More recently, Collecting takes me to Brimfield, local tag sales, flea markets on a hunt to find one of a kind bits like 1960's shoe clips, colorful carved bakelite chunks,  a stash of vintage glass beads. The beads I use are unique and alluring for their milky, opaque, vivid, faceted, colors and quality.  The beads are from the 1940"s -60's, made in Western Germany and Japan.  I have made a collection of jewels that are easy to wear pieces with a nod to the past and created for the present.... 

BESPOKE JEWELRY

I live and make Jewelry in Providence, RI from my home studio.  I attended art schools in Philly and Massachusetts. I enjoy the process of marrying  old and the new to create a jewel that can be worn NOW....   Each piece is handmade by Torin.  

I do commissions and love to rework old pieces that need an update, making them wearable and current........ please email for a consult.... ROCK OUT!
