Every Saturday on Claremont Avenue and Lafayette Street in the Fort Green section in Brooklyn, you'll notice of sea of vintage finds. If you're looking for that odd item that would work well either with your outfit or for your home, then The Brooklyn Flea should be calling you.

With up to over one hundred vendors all selling clothes that dates back to the 1930s along with almost forgotten designer label handbags, makes shopping the "Flea" feel like you're shopping new shipment. While some fashion trends make a comeback with an updated twist, there's nothing like that original piece that inspired the updates. It gives off more than just a vintage appeal; it shows originality.

We take a look at some nice jewelry vendors who have fashionable costume pieces, sterling silver and even wood.

Amaya Designs feature Hand crafted Sterling Silver and Fashion Jewelry along with Home decor.

Helveta Vyotlag  thought outside the box with the creation of rings made from wood in asymetric design and tiny heavy paper weights. The most standout item the vendor showcased were the two finger wooden rings.

Such a great attention grabber and fashionable conversation piece. With representation from the creators of the Metro Card Belt buckle,  Scott Behr of Total Metal Resource NYC says, "It fits in so well with what we do".

The rings and earrings are light weight and fun and also neatly crafted.
