Like many others, Vanessa sold her soul to Corporate America, on a 7-10 year stretch, until realizing that true happiness doesn’t come from monetary rewards, it comes from soulful living. With the support of her husband, father, brother and five rescue dogs, Vanessa runs a business, right from the kitchen of her home, where she creates unique handmade artisan jewelry.
Casual & formal, geek and unique, jewelry designs that are handmade with gemstone, pearl and crystal, made magical by accents of sterling silver and quality natural brass. Vanessa, better known as pink80sgirl, crafts a symphony of Victorian and vintage inspired designs.
Putting one of her designs to the test, we purchased a necklace and then offered it to a friend who wore it to work. A fantastic 9 out of 10 people commented on the striking dragonfly necklace. The piece is a 25 x 18mm glass oval handmade cabochon, featuring a purple dragonfly. It sits inside a plain edged bezel setting, then mounted on a highly detailed Victorian filigree pendant. This lovely piece hangs from a pretty antiqued/oxidized brass chain measuring 18 inches including lobster clasp closure. This piece is nickel and lead free.
With 520 positive reviews and an impressive ZERO negative reviews on her shopping site, this pink80’sgirl is a sure thing!
