“Salvage from the past to make your life richer in the present” is Kim Williams’ mantra.
A BA in Theatre Education and 30 years in the classroom has provided Kim with a profound appreciation for creative design.
Transitioning from teaching to retirement came with some challenges. Desiring to channel creative energy, mix in a little inspiration for a love of collecting antiques and vintage jewelry with a background in fashion history all came together in a blinding bolt of lightening when she began a new journey creating repurposed jewelry.

Cowgirl Prom

  I often talk about the distinct culture of Texas and all of the influences of historical value in my jewelry work. My Cowgirl Prom collection is the quintessential example of how an idea becomes a reality. I found this picture of Annie Oakley while exploring vintage images with a western flair. I love Miss Oakley's western shirt so artfully decorated with sharp shooting awards and ribbons. "I Can Do Anything Better than You", from the musical, Annie Get Your Gun pops into my head. I assemble my stash of vintage and antique jewelry findings, mix in a few images and instantly a picture of what was is now new and inspired.

I can't describe what a thrill it is to sell a piece of my jewelry. I especially like it when I know my little creation is going on a journey across the country to become a part of a lucky lady's wardrobe. I am saying goodbye and fair well to my Iconic Cowgirl Link Bracelet with the green turquoise bead closure. I hope it brings as much joy to the person wearing it as it did to the creation of it. ByeBye Cowgirl....

Grandmother's Chair Wearing a New Dress and Makeup

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to transform my chair. I mixed 3 teaspoons of White and 3 teaspoons of
Old White. This made enough paint to do 2 coats. Amazing! The upholstery is from JoAnn's. The hardest part of the project was removing the old upholstery.

Organization with Texas Flare

This is a favorite find to be used for a photo prop and, best of all, to organize projects on my work desk. It's has seven little holders  decorated with Texas flora. I am crazy about it.
