Shelley Johnston is an Asheville North Carolina based jewelry designer specializing in transforming vintage and antique costume jewelry.  The materials she uses in her one of a kind designs, are (mostly) of American and European design and original manufacture. Shelley finds her materials at antique malls from around the country as she travels on her motorcycle searching for the most interesting pieces.  She salvages our jewelry history bringing it back to wearability. Not only does she work with collectible designer pieces, but she also recycles broken pieces that seem hopelessly out of date or impossible to repair. Some of her more challenging designs originate from fragments and scraps found in the bottom of old tins, shoeboxes and dusty jewelry cases. 

Asheville provides endless inspiration for design whether it is the "romance of the south" or visiting the grand Biltmore Estate. Her boundless passion for vintage jewelry is reflected in her unique design perspective which honors the original architecture of the item while updating it for the contemporary woman.

 Hippie Chic is the fashion trend of the season.  What better way to accentuate fringe, suede and leather jackets, embroidered blouses, and elegant lacy tunics than with authentic antique and vintage costume jewelry.  Pair your BoHo clothing trends with jewelry of the period to "rock" the current look.  See Shelley's authentic designs at a Fine Craft show in Western North Carolina and find jewelry that are not reproductions of the era - they are from the era.
