Swinging Olive started when I inherited a pretty large lot of vintage brooches. I loved them but knew I would never wear them. What to do… What to do as I sat thinking with a glass in hand! Maybe it was the wine….maybe it was divine intervention…whatever it was I was off and running. I made my first wine stopper with a real beauty and it sold instantly! I knew I was onto something. As I shopped for more jewels I would pick up pieces of other stuff and turn them into light fixtures, furniture, candle holders….well you get the picture. Over time I expanded into other things that would strike my fancy (and hopefully yours) both old and new. Check back @ www.swingingolive.com often – you never know what will pop up.
