Welcome to my sparkly corner of the internet! Wee Sparklies specializes in rhinestone jewelry from Georgian to Mid Century Modern and everything in between. Finding amazing pieces and restoring them to their original glory has been a passion of mine for over 20 years, and while I started with brooches I've expanded to bracelets, necklaces, earrings, belt buckles and the occasional tiara. Watching the beauty re-emerge from the broken is worth all the hard work and elbow grease.
I have a vast collection of Swarovski rhinestones, Preciosa rhinestones, Japanese and German glass, cabochons, carved glass and special production stones. Somewhere around 70% of them are unused vintage, making it possible to get as close to original as possible. Because I buy in bulk, there are always extra rhinestones which I use to create necklaces, earrings, cufflinks and sweater guards. Combining these vintage parts with new sterling silver, vermeil and gold filled findings is a favorite of mine.
You'll find a variety of jewelry here at Wee Sparklies, made from pot metal, rhodium plate, bronze and amalgam. In the near future, I hope to add a small dictionary of terms to help you be able to identify quality vintage jewelry (soldering vs. swedge, filigree and stampings, what do all those markings mean?) on your own adventures. Meanwhile, if you have questions you are always more than welcome to email me or follow my instagram and I'll do my best to answer.
I'm so glad you made it here to my little shop, have a look around and see if there's something you love!
