Here is my Etsy store, I am slowly adding my products all the time so please keep checking back!

Here goes!

So here are the first of my products to hit the stores, this part has been a couple of weeks in the making!
All my products are from repurposed or recycled materials, the pendants are made from poker chips, one side is patterned and the reverse is either plain black or silver.

The tree you see below has been given to Boutique Trinkets, for those of you familiar with Hudson it is in Plaza Poirier. Tara from Boutique Trinkets has a small selection in store.

My tree of pendants!

Below are a few of my faves!
These are available in store at Boutique Trinkets, from myself (drop me an email) or from my online store.
The price for the pendant is $20 which includes an 18" necklace and is gift boxed for you!
Any item can be customized, please let me know if you want a different necklace than is shown.
