From my early years as a ballerina, I wore gorgeous costume jewelry to perform.  Never in a million years, did I ever imagine I would own such a massive collection of jewelry….nearly all of it costume!  The attention to detail, the impeccable craftsmanship, and let’s not forget, the mega watt shine & sparkle make those glamorous jewels from yesteryear so appealing.  The right jewelry can make every girl feel like a million and the array of colors and design make them versatile enough to go with your wedding dress…or a little leather and denim.  These are some of my faves….

Ask anyone who collects vintage jewelry…there is nothing better than a good day of antiquing!  It’s not easy to do in this day and age…sadly, most really good, old fashioned vendors are out of business…or on their way out.  I have a couple of favorite spots in a number of locations…but for the most part, my favorite haunts are gone.  Last week, however, was a lucky day!  I was fortunate enough to find some exceptional pieces…most from the Art Deco period, and some Czech rhinestone beauties.haulphoto 4-2

The statement earrings, with a stipled turquoise cabochon were so gorgeous, that they literally sold within five minutes of being listed!  The finds were mainly earrings…milk glass, Juliana, huge rhinestone Deco delights and so on…The piece with the green paste stones is a magnificent pendant necklace…quite unusual.

I particularly love the glass sunburst bracelet…it’s breath taking in person!  Most of these beauties can be found in my shop on Etsy, but, I also make them available directly on Instagram…all you need to do is leave your Paypal addy…it’s that easy!  You can find my shop and IG gallery here:
