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.

Frequently asked questions

what is galalith

a milk based plastic used in european jewelry
similar to bakelite

how do you test for bakelite

i test with simichrome, if the pink simichrome turns yellow
when rubbed onto a piece
the piece is bakelite

how many pieces of jewelry should i wear at the same time

as long as you can lift your head and arms and walk
you are not wearing too many

how can i tell if a bangle will fit?

Not sure that wonderful bangle will fit? There is an easy way to know for sure. Put your thumb and pinky finger together, Take a soft tape measure, and measure around your hand. if you don't have a soft tape measure, you can use a piece of string. Just measure the string. Measure the place on your hand where on the bangle needs to slide over. (Not your wrist) You will get a number from approx 6 to 9 1/2, depending on the size and flexibility of your hand. check that number against the inner circumference number the seller has provided in their listing. I need 7 3/4 minimum I like 8 8 1/2 better The problem with bangles is getting it over your hands.
