Denise / Salvij
Owner/designer - Salvij, upcycled jewelry. "If I can imagine it, I can make it. My passion is taking the old and making it into something new. Seeing the new in the old. I have had many crafty adventures which not only leave me with fun works of art (wearable usually) but also A LOT of excess supplies from my "upcycling adventures".
