Three really cool chicks. I mean, the kind of chicks you’d just want to snatch up, carry around in your pocket and keep forever. Those are the kind of women that are behind Vintaj natural brass beading components. Sisters Wendy and Jeanne, along with their dear friend Jess, started the Vintaj company to bring innovative, vintage inspired beading items into the marketplace. These hip mamas wanted to work for themselves, so they could have a flexible work environment and keep their focus on their children. Plus, they figured that we would want all of this gorgeous stuff to play with. They were right!
An instant favorite of beaders everywhere, Vintaj items have been repeatedly featured in every major beading magazine. What’s not to love? Unlimited creative options, gorgeous hand rubbed patinas, pieces that work together in a variety of ways, “alternative” setting techniques (yes, a dragofly wing is a perfectly reasonable prong!) — all created using an eco-friendly, lead free process that’s healthy for both the earth and your children. (Yes, they are going to put that in their mouth!)
At Bead World, we are unabashed lovers of the entire Vintaj line, and we carry a lot of it in our stores. Just look at the gorgeous things you can make with their unique pieces! (Yes, I gush.) We “borrowed” these great design ideas from the official Vintaj Co. website
