About

I love vintage, especially vintage beads and findings. I also sell sterling silver jewelry, vintage necklaces, and occasional small vintage items. I have a huge collection of beads and if you are looking for something special, please feel free to contact me.

I have been a bead person ever since early childhood. My introduction to fine art glass was a loving and magical Hungarian baby-sitter who became a third grandma. She had collection of beautiful beaded art glass and crystal rosaries from pre-War Europe. She would hold them up in the sunlight and I was just mesmerized. It's one of my first memories.

I don't call myself a bead historian, but I am definitely a bead nerd. I am always doing research, which ties in with my love of history. I believe everyone who buys vintage beads deserves to know as much about them as possible.

Most of my items are never used, completely mint, but when I salvage great beads, I sometimes pass them on and will let you know where they have come from. Some of my best beads, including trade beads, had been used in jewelry or collected before they came to me.

♥ Thanks for Reading and Happy Beading ♥
