Wonderful vintage finds.

As you know, I love to seek out interesting old items for inspiration. These things not only look great, but I love to use them on my displays to give a suitably vintage looking backdrop for my Jewellery!
Anyway, my latest fabulous find is a late Victorian camera / projector. I love anything that really evokes a sense of the past - plus it has lots of twisty turnable wheels and latches to fiddle about with! I think this is a amazing Steampunky find, that I can't wait to show off.

Just finished long weekend at trade show London Edge - hard work, but met some great new and existing customers!
