It feels odd to realize that much of my own adult life is now a part of “history”. Much of vintage jewelry is an example of art, creative design and in many cases very fine workmanship. While most costume jewelry was made with the intent of use for only a season or two, the designs are often classic and thus timeless. While only a small amount of this jewelry is from Muffy’s collection, I think that you will find that these pieces carry magic.
