Each Foxglove Accessories item is made from one or more vintage postage stamps from around the world. Original stamps are hand-selected based on their design, color and quality and transformed into a wearable token of the past, a postmarked piece of history that once carried a message through foreign lands. Collect a set to remind you of your ancestry, a special vacation or to add a unique accent to a casual outfit. Each item will arrive with a tag detailing the country and decade of origin.
Hello there. My name is Betsy Siber, and I’m the artist and owner here at Foxglove Accessories. Back in 2006, I discovered a forgotten collection of my father’s postage stamps. Captivated by the intricate designs and vivid colors, I hated the idea of them being hidden in a box on a shelf. I made my first pair of earrings that day. After establishing a relationship with a few philatelists online, my stamp stash is now well over 10,000. It’s a pretty compact operation here at Foxglove Accessories. I personally take all orders and create each item by hand in my Chicago studio. I take great pleasure in seeing each finished piece and hope that you will enjoy every one as much as I do.
