Katye Mantz's Profile

About

Hi Folks. My name is Katye and I think it's time I admit to the world that I am a Vintage Jewelry Addict. My obsession started early when I would sit on the end of the pew in church (I know I'm dating myself) so that I could check out all the ladies outfits and jewels as they walked past. I also spent hours playing with my Grandmother's jewelry as soon as I could climb up on the seat to her vanity table.

Even lower cost pieces were made with a dedication and focus on quality and beauty that is largely lost today. Although most costume jewelry of from the 1930's…

I love, adore, and receive great joy repairing and restoring antique and vintage costume jewelry. In honing my skills I discovered a lost art form. Even lower cost pieces were made with a dedication and focus on quality and beauty that is largely lost today. Although most costume jewelry of from the 1930's on was mass produced, quality was rarely sacrificed and there are multitudes of these exquisite works of art still available. My goal is to rescue those pieces that have been abused and discarded and with painstaking care and use of only quality vintage materials, bring these masterpieces back to their original glory.

By providing these jeweled beauties for sale I hope to share the excitement and joy of owning a lost treasure with others who are like minded or short on some joy.

I do so hope you enjoy what you see here. I try to keep my prices reasonable so that you are able to buy what you like and I am open to offers if something is just beyond your reach.

Peace and Blessings to you all.
