About

I think creativity and beauty are Life's greatest gifts to us.

If you want to celebrate Life by giving a little gift to yourself or someone else, what could be more beautiful than a piece of vintage jewelry?

I created this Etsy vintage jewelry shop to remember the radiance of my Great Great Aunt Edna Purviance, who starred in more than 30 of Charlie Chaplin's films. My family honors her memory and her exquisite beauty and kindness.

Some of the jewelry in my shop is displayed on photos of Edna from the 1920s. Oh, how she would have loved Etsy and its vibrant creative community!

Edna Purviance (from Linda Wada's www.EdnaPurviance.com)
"She was Charlie's best and truest friend during the most critical years of his career. Edna had uncommon beauty and a remarkable screen presence, and she was popular around the world at a time when everyone working in films was literally pioneering an industry. If you never heard of Edna, it may have been because she was one of the film world's most private personalities. She was never a show business diva, and never attempted to elevate herself above the company of players she worked with at the Chaplin Studio."
