Kay West's Profile
A lifetime collector of semi-precious stones and unusual beads. I've gathered cut stones from gems and minerals shows, lapidary conventions, traded with folks, some discovered in dusty little rock shops, some cabs and beads even acquired from estate sales.
As a result of offering for sale a number of my vintage beads, I've branched out into collecting and selling other vintage and antique items. I love the history wrapped around these items; places and situations of which I seldom have firsthand knowledge, but it's entertaining to imagine.
