Depression Happy!

The other day I went to one of my favorite local spots, a little vintage/junk store that sells tons of beads. The owner bought out the entire contents of the New York Freirich Company about 20 years ago. I went there looking for more bakelite, which i love to use in jewelry and ended up becoming completely taken with all the Depression Era glass they had there. I ended up buying a ton of it and now I am working on a bunch of new designs. I think they are going to have a bit of Art Deco inspiration, so keep any eye out. I'm hoping some of these items will appeal to the shoppers at Renegade Craft Fair, which I am doing in two weeks.
