A Treasured Past

Yet another one of my delightful etsy customers has been hard at work creating some beautiful stamp pendants.  Tamara lives in a 1920s bungalow in a small country town in NSW, Australia.  Similar to me, she is collector and coveter of antique and vintage treasures.  She loves thrifting and crafting with her unique finds.  You can read more about her lovely adventures on her blog .  Here are some large round pendant rings that Tamara designed:

And here are some gorgeous "Scrabble tile"-sized square pendants created with Japanese stamps (& 1 set of Australian stamps).  The Japanese stamps are from the 1940s - 1960s and they are some of my favorite philatelic specimens.  I recently purchased a large Japanese stamp collection from a local collector who was stationed on "Slave Island" in Japan during WW2.  Since I acquired this collection, Japan has been my main philatelic focus.
Tamara hasn't started selling on etsy yet so if you're interested in her pendants, I suggest contacting her directly.  If you're down in Oz, it looks like she's an active vendor around the local craft show circuit.
