ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Mary Collins, the designer and creator of Vauje Jewelry, started making jewels to compliment retro and vintage attire.

She reached her goal when her jewels adorned the neck of Bernie Dexter, a high profile retro model.

After some time passed, Collins began tapping into her creative side by making more artistic pieces. Now every idea and skill that has been picked up throughout her creative journey will be poured into fashion and couture pieces.
