Is there something you just can't live without? I'm crazy for jewelry! I could care less about the latest styles, colors and cuts of clothes, shoes and accessories......but......Take me to a fleamarket, garage sale or any other type of that venue and I'm lost. My husband will be browsing around and loose me in a crowd. He has to back track his steps and find me literally ooohing and awwwing over something shiny in a case, a drawer or jumbled in a box. "Oh no, pretties" is his statement and he knows he can continue looking at what interests him and I won't move an inch until I've inspected everything!
I've been that way for as long as memory serves me. I'd taken broken beads, buttons and chains and adorn my Barbie dolls with something shiny and pretty. So, here I am, still in middle age, wanting and doing and drawn to the same thing! Now, Im a collector, and restorer of a variety of vintage jewelry. I'm not drawn to a specific era or…

So, here I am, still in middle age, wanting and doing and drawn to the same thing! Now, Im a collector, and restorer of a variety of vintage jewelry. I'm not drawn to a specific era or style of pieces, but have, rather, a very eclectic mix of items to share with those who love vintage jewelry as much as I do. There are many ways in which I've been able to acquire pieces over the years. I enjoy this part as much as treasuring these works for their craftsmanship and durability through the years. Another part of collecting is the research. It's a challenge to find out where/who/when pieces were created and the exact materials and areas in history they were born out of. I too enjoy this quest as much as the actual pieces themselves.
