Featured Artist: Patricia Mackey of Tippy Stockton

I am delighted to share with you another one of Bumbershoot Supplies’ talented neighbors, jewelry designer extraordinaire, Patricia Mackey, owner of Tippy Stockton. 

Patricia has been selling on Etsy and in other venues for some time, and she just recently launched her own website, a beautiful place to visit and a wonderful complement to her lovely designs.

Patricia says: “Some of my earliest memories are of playing with my Mom and Grandmother’s jewelry. Opening up their jewelry boxes, made me giddy with excitement.

I still get that same feeling today when I find a piece of Vintage jewelry - that piece of jewelry tells a story and I love giving it new life!

Tippy Stockton jewelry is designed and handmade from sterling silver, vintage, and glass beads. My inspiration is great color, texture and a bit of nature thrown in for good measure. You might call me a "jane of all design trades".

I love jewelry, textiles, paper - see, I told you! I began creating jewelry when I couldn't find the perfect necklace for a special event. So my imagination took over and as they say, the rest is history.”

Patricia’s metal of choice is sterling silver. Oxidized to a dark patina, she pairs it with high quality vintage and contemporary components, reflecting her love of combining vintage and contemporary into something new.

When last I checked, Patricia’s designs were available at 23 different boutiques and retail sites in 4 different states. But no matter where you are located, you can always view her designs and get a dose of inspiration and loveliness on her website, Tippy Stockton.  I hope you will enjoy a visit soon!
