Lake Forest, Calif. (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
From the runway to retail stores, eco-friendly jewelry is one of the hottest trends in 2013. The newest expansion of jewelry etching and embossing products from Vintaj® shows why.
Designed to work with Vintaj pre-cut metal blanks, DecoEtch™ and DecoEmboss™ dies emboss and etch beautiful patterns for many possibilities. From whimsical sea life to floral vegetation to intricate backdrops, these versatile products help crafters design countless, beautiful creations for an interesting look every time.
“Our latest collection of jewelry dies are designed to be the perfect complement or starring piece in your latest creation!” says Jeanne Holland, co-founder of Vintaj. “With our dies, anyone can make professional-looking, unique metal jewelry pieces from the comfort of their home.”
Eco-friendly, lead and nickel free, all twelve of the new dies are compatible with the Vintaj BIGkick™ Special Edition Machine as well as the Sizzix® Big Shot™, the Vagabond™ and standard BIGkick™ machines.
“Due to the popularity of this collection, we’ve expanded it to offer artistic designs that craft enthusiasts are sure to love,” says Kristin Highberg, CEO of Ellison.
The full March release of Vintaj DecoEtch and DecoEmboss dies and additional Vintaj products are now available in thousands of stores around the country, including local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains. For more information, visit Sizzix.com.
Ten years ago, two sisters made a career-changing discovery. Playfully and artfully manipulating a filigree bead, Jeanne Holland opened it and wrapped it around a glass stone. Both she and sibling Wendy Mullane immediately realized the possibilities of what they now term "creative settings" and later began to design together full time as Vintaj Design Studios. Soon after, Wendy discovered an eco-friendly process while metalworking to give Vintaj embellishments their unique color and luster. Completing their circle, the sisters invited close friend and designer extraordinaire, Jess Lincoln, to join them. Through these combined efforts, the Vintaj Natural Brass Co. was born in 2005.
