Creativity Spotlight-Studio B Vintage Paper Jewelry

What happens when you combine talent, creativity and vintage paper that is over 100 years old?  Well, you get charming and unique hand made art jewelry that you just want to wear!  I had the pleasure of visiting Beth Hylan's Studio B vintage paper boutique located in the historic town of Concord, Mass.  I had actually learned of this shop from Yvonne from Design Vignettes blog {go here to read more}.  Yvonne actually is a very talented interior decorator and a graphic designer who designed the shops adorable logo {image below}.  

"I do as I'm told" pin.  I wanted to get this for my daughter!  
Concord is one of my favorite towns here in Massachusetts for its historical charm and best of all shopping!  

Studio B logo designed by Yvonne Blacker at Design Vignettes blog.  

I was enchanted by how lovely the shop was arranged.  It is a little treasure trove!  I was also very impressed by Beth's work and how she turned it into a business.  To be able to harness your artistic side that way and make it into a livelihood is the ultimate!

"Each piece is created out of hand-cut layers of vintage paper that is over 100 years old.  The face of each piece is a collage of steel plate prints and antique type.  These layers are then sealed in jeweler's resin and finished with pearls and sterling.  Each piece is an original work of art." (Information via Studio B)

I am including some photo's of my favorites.  It was hard to choose!

Small dragon fly frame. 

My Mom bought a charm for my daughter that simply just said, "fly".

A beautifully framed work of art about rain..."I like the rain, I like every drop, I wish the rain would never stop".

Another whimsical frame with a bird theme.

I love the creativity of this piece made from vintage paper.

Here is the shop window.  How charming is that?  I love the little wicker handbags.

Hi Jamilyn!

I am so glad you got the chance to visit my friend Beth in her lovely shop. She mentioned meeting you as well. Great post that you put together with some really nice photos :)

Beth is one of those amazingly creative people ... I love watching her come up with her many beautiful items or inspiring flower arrangements. I used a few of her pieces in my recent design show at the Wenham Museum (check my blog on Wednesday for some close up shots plus the story behind my design).

PS Glad you (and your daughter) are enjoying your giveaway gift!
