Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight: NuggetsOfGoodness

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is Nuggets of Goodness that’s run by Carla.

Nuggets of Goodness specializes in original one-of-a-kind handmade jewels and accessories made with recycled vintage baubles and beads. They scour local antique stores, flea markets and yard sales for hidden treasures to use in our unique pieces, each with its own special connection to the past.

Carla started collecting vintage jewelry while in high school, oddly enough due to Madonna. She wore stacks and stacks of rhinestones, and while Carla could pick up knockoffs in the store, her thriftiness led her to second-hand stores where she could pick them up for next to nothing.  This is also when she began to make her own jewelry too, crazy stuff made of found objects from the hardware store!

A few years ago, overwhelmed by the amount of jewelry in her collection that never got worn, Carla decided to break it down and recycle it, and Nuggets of Goodness was born.

One of these really cool recycled pieces of jewelry is this really cool ring.

This terrific ring has a pink and yellow vintage glass cabochon, and it’s adjustable to fit just about any finger!  You can see this cool ring in the Nuggets of Goodness shop here.

As a matter of fact, you can check out everything in the Nuggets of Goodness shop here.  Head on over and check them out!
