Heirloom Keepsakes

I love beautiful things and isn't this jewelry and ring holder simply stunning! I recently met the designer and creator of this gorgeous piece - Paige Smith - and she is just as lovely as her creations!

Paige is an artist and designer who's career has been in web design. Recently she decided to follow her passion and create these works of beauty. As a collector at heart, Paige found herself drawn to vintage tea saucers and has treasured hunted at flea markets around the world. She has a massive collection with over 800 saucers! 


Paige takes these orphaned saucers...

and restyles them into pretty, functional pieces...

Perfect as a gift ( wouldn't it make the most amazing and unique gift for Mom? ), each ring holder comes beautifully packaged in an exquisite box.

( Check out Paige's Etsy Shop here to shop from her collection.)

She also does amazing custom work! Paige loves to create one-of-a-kind keepsakes for brides. What a special present to give the bride as an engagement or shower gift, providing the perfect place for  storing and displaying her precious engagement ring.

They make memorable gifts for bridesmaids too!

I have many tea cups from my grandmother and would love to have Paige turn them into jewelry holders for my sisters and our daughters. What a lovely way to cherish our grandmother's memory!

Paige also uses saucers to make 'delicious' dessert domes.

So lovely for a dessert table or for a His & Hers Sweetheart table!

But I would so want to celebrate a friend's birthday with an incredible stack of macaroons presented in one of Paige's domes!

I just love Paige's updated vintage style. Her approach of honouring the past in a way that is current and oh so pretty is right on trend. And her creations make an impressive and unique gift. I am so glad to have met this creative gal!
