As a child I collected Jewelry in a suitcase, gathered from my Great Uncle recycling business. It wasn’t so much a business as a need to save, collect and reuse. He survived the depression and was the first environmental conservative I knew.
I picked up all the jewelry I could lay my hands on as I shifted through the things he “rescued”, even stones and scraps didn't escape my eye.
I never understood why people would throw out these miniature works of art.
Later I worked selling vintage and sterling jewelry on the streets of NY. Some of my customers included Actors, Actress' and Costume designers from soap operas, NBC, CBS and Broadway Productions (and off Broadway, and off off Broadway and where the hell is that?)
I’ve owned an antique…
