Nilene Thompson-Finn's Profile

About

My love for jewelry began with summer vacations in the 60s when my parents bought me a state charm for each state we visited. I currently have 49 state charms & while I "own" #50, it's not going on my charm bracelet until I visit the state! :-)

In 1971, I inherited my grandmother's jewelry & I've been adding to that collection ever since. I love enameled copper pieces from the 1950s & high quality rhinestone jewelry from any decade! I am also addicted to authentic, period Bakelite.

I love making jewelry too!
