Light Layers and a Vintage Necklace

I had the pleasure of meeting Carrie and Stacy, owners of CS Gems, a new Facebook-based business offering vintage and repurposed jewelry.  I was immediately attracted to the reuse philosophy at the core of this jewelry business.  Carrie and Stacy literally search widely for vintage pieces people have discarded and refashion them to make the pieces lovable again.

CS Gems is based in the St. Louis area and operates using snap sales on Facebook.  I got a peek at some of the pieces in the upcoming sale launching on January 15 at 7PM, and let me tell you, the items are perfect for Spring 2014!  The price-point, by the way, is affordable, with average prices ranging from $10-$15.

In today’s post, I’m sporting a gifted CS Gem, a beautiful necklace anchored by a filigree pendant with a cameo detail at its center and finished by a tassel.  The pendant was originally a vintage brooch that the CS Gem team transformed into a standout necklace.

    I have not missed a single snap sale since they started last fall. Every piece I get is fantastic. The snap sale concept is really fun and the prices can't be beat. Thanks for featuring CS Gems. You won't be disappointed in anything you buy.
