Hundreds of Pieces of Jewelry will finally see the Light of Day!

At the urging of a few of my dear friends I have finally started organizing and photographing some of the jewelry that was part of my bricks and mortar store's " back room inventory".

I retired from retail on December 31st 2007 and started taking care of all the things I neglected for the last 35 years.

Since my jewelry inventory and personal collection were in storage, there was no urgency to put it "out there". As my husband always says: "it doesn't EAT".
True Enough...but we don't ever know how much time we have.
So, here I am!

I first opened a retail "boutique" in 1971.
Since then I had a store in Southampton N.Y., which led to a winter store in Boca Raton FL., which led to beautiful St. Armand's Key in Sarasota FL. We lived and prospered there for 15 years.

In 1987 we were ready for a change.
We checked out California and settled on beautiful San Francisco.
The rest, as they say, is history.
We loved the city and opened a store on Union Street in San Francisco's prestigious Pacific Heights.
After 20 years of retail in SF my husband and I decided to retire.

I have continued designing custom jewelry pieces for my customer/friends, and have also been doing commissions for new internet customers, and I am currently designing accessories for a couple of small start up businesses.

Etsy is a wonderful platform on which to sell some of the jewelry that, for one reason or another, never made it onto the store's selling floor. I also want to find good homes for most of my personal jewelry collection and for some of the decorative pieces from the SF shop,

Thank you for your interest,

Any questions?...anytime! I am social and I love people on a one on one basis. My cell # is 415.702.7272.

    Hi! So glad to have, finally, made it onto Etsy with some of my Vintage and Antique Jewelry. My friends have been bugging me about it since I retired from 35 years of retail at the end of 2007. Time Flies...what else can I say ?
