About

shopping for treasures

Hi. I have been wearing and collecting jewelry forever. Really! As a little girl I remember playing dress up with my mother’s jewelry and her lucite purses, and I guess I never stopped!

In 1980's I started selling vintage jewelry at the big Chicago area antique shows and in an antique mall
I have been selling on line since
1999. I sell at antique shows both
in Florida and Chicago. I love to shop, I specialize in bold, statement runway style, costume jewelry. I love fancy named plastics, bakelite, galalith, lucite
When you see me I am always wearing wonderful jewelry, a pin, a bangle a necklace a ring
usually all at once.
