EDCCollective carries an eclectic mix of items. Browse for handcrafted and vintage jewelry and accessories as well as photographic art and home decor.

EDCCollective began as a family of artisans/craft persons/collectors. My mom, our main collector passed away in Nov. of '09. So while the mix of items listed may change some, I will continue to offer quality hand crafted items as well as some vintage collectibles.

EDC's jewelry contains an eclectic range of materials including gemstones, crystal, glass, brass, vintage beads, wood, freshwater pearls, and feathers. A wide range of styles can be found and custom work is encouraged. My pieces contain either new or vintage components chosen for their individual beauty and combined appeal. While the majority of my listed pieces are silver or gold plated, I'd be happy to work with you to create a piece for you using sterling, GF, 14K gold or even leather. Please be sure to check out my unique product, "No-Hole" Gathering Pins.

Photographic art of nature in all its original splendor or digitally altered for a totally new look are also found in my offerings. These images are available, matted, in a variety of sizes for your wall as well as on note cards and bookmarks. Custom work is also available in this area.

Additional home decor items include pieces made from tree parts, otherwise destined for the landfill. These items include vases and candle holders.

EDCCollective is a branch of EclecticDesignChoices (EDC).
