I grew up in a home full of antiques. To be honest with you, I didn't like old things growing up, they sort of had that dingy smell that bothered me. The more years I live, the more I've come to appreciate the beauty and elegance in antiques and vintage pieces. The nostalgia for the past is taking over as I grow older. I miss the time that has passed and can't help to run after it in an attempt to grasp it momentarily and make it last longer. That's why vintage has become a deep passion and a search for the long missed.
I love collecting Victorian, Art Deco and Art Nouveau jewelry. My collection grows everyday as I grow as a collector. I have a special interest for compacts, lockets and watch fobs. My design degree helps me understand the history of the manufacturing and fashion. If I see a broken beauty from the past, I can't help but think to make it wearable and desirable again. You…
