A plain outfit can look gorgeous if matched with the perfect piece of jewelry. Ideally the jewelry that you wear reflects your personality.

That way not only do you get to wear some stunning vintage accessories but you also do your bit for the environment, as the handmade vintage jewelry pieces have been made in an eco-friendly way.
This range of hand-crafted vintage jewelry collection has been created by Chinookhugs, who is a full-time artist and is a traditionally trained metal-smith. All his creations are made to order, and therefore it will take a few days to reach you once you place an order.
Most of the pieces designed are that of insects and animals, so insects and forest creatures were definitely a major source of inspiration. The artist re-imagined these creatures and came up with designs inspired by various movements and styles, ranging from gothic to steampunk to retro-future to fantasy. You will also see the tinge of Edwardian styles, sci-fi, Baroque, Victorian and Renaissance.
What makes it “green”?
The jewelry is made out of vintage metal and vintage stones, so it is safe to say that this is in a way a “recycling” of this old material. These arty statement pieces are handcrafted, so except for manual labor no other power source is used, in that way too this is an eco-friendly way to accessorize your outfits. Creatures like a lizard, a black spider, a fox, an owl, a turtle, a sparrow and many more have been represented in these jewelry pieces, that itself is a wonderful way of appreciating the creatures of nature.
The fab factor
All the pieces are one-of-a-kind and will undoubtedly add a new dimension to your style statement. These handmade vintage jewelry pieces can also be a great gift item. When you place an order with Chinookhugs, you receive your vintage jewelry in a gift box, so it is ready to be gifted to your loved ones!
The vintage jewelry collection
The pieces in this handmade vintage jewelry collection range from neckpieces, rings and bracelets to pendants, cuff links and pins. The owl locket ring, the dragon ring, the griffin locket, the lizard ring and the turtle locket are some of the unique creations on offer. The vintage jewelry is an extension of the vintage watch movement and complements it. Aged brass, copper and other metals are used to create these pieces, which are then embellished with vintage jewels, precious and semi-precious stones. Each piece has a different feel to it, while some are gothic, quirky, and are of the bold kind, some on the other hand are antique, and beautiful.
