Welcome to Old Soul Studios, We love vintage and aged items that portray a silent story about them. We create new items from salvaged items and create new stories, kind of like the makings of "An Old Soul". We love the art of making something out of nothing, making something old into something new!

Sea my Inspiration

Items from the sea have always found their way into home decor, even homes far from the shore. The love affair with the ocean continues to be strong, it's beauty is one of the earth's most precious gifts.
Old Soul Studios, our creating business often looks to nature for inspiration. The sun, flowers, birds, branches and nest can all be found amongst our creations. We love the sea, it inspires us. We are currently working on a new group of creations inspired by the sea. These items will be for home and garden as well as personal accessories. Many artist have been inspired by the sea for hundreds of years so the challenge to create something wonderfully new is at hand.
Our collections inspire me, the colors are my favorites... soft sands, iridescent blues, powdery grays, muted greens, washed woods and rust.
When I was a young child I told my father when I grow up I am going to glue shells to drift wood and sell them by the side of the road to visitors to the beach ( I believe I probably saw this going on, it was 1968!), my father laughed. Many years later he reminded me of this and laughed again, saying that I was pretty close with my future prediction.
When you hold them to your ear you can hear the roar of the sea... I can only hope that our creations will take you there too, no mater how far from shore you may be ~ Jacque
