KariBeth Thompson of Nashville has been making exquisite pieces of jewelry from vintage baubles, broken jewelry, chains, and found objects for years. Constructed by hand and incorporating large, statement buckles and delicate vintage beads, her repurposed necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are one of a kind, each made with care and dedication. Every creation is almost entirely constructed from existing and forgotten jewelry pieces with layers of colors, crossing time periods and styles. These aspects join together to create genuinely unique pieces with KariBeth's distinct point of view. Gorgeous vintage trinkets become fabulous, impressive works of wearable art, perfect for a little black dress, a fanciful event, or a bride. Each piece tells a story of transformation, whimsy, and classic style. KariBeth is influenced not only by every aspect of each piece, but by flowers, antiques, inkblots, and love stories. KariBeth is able to create a new kind of heirloom; a truly fascinating undertaking with beautiful results. Even stores like Anthropologie have taken notice, and her pieces can be found in several boutiques in Tennessee, New York, Maryland, and Florida, as well as online. You can follow KariBeth on Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Be sure to check KariBeth's Facebook page often for new pieces as they are created!
