About

An Obsession With Lucite

Not so long ago I was visiting a bead show and something caught my eye at a vendor's booth. It turned out to be vintage American moonglow lucite from the 1950's. I bought a few beads, took them home, and started doing some research. Mind you, up to that time my experience in jewelry-making was limited to gemstones and silver, and I didn't have a clue about the fascinating history of fashion (aka "costume") jewelry.

The beauty and quality of vintage American lucite soon had me hooked, and led to discovering other wonderful vintage jewelry components made of many different materials, from all over the world...Germany, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, and others. It was, literally, a whole new world of design potential.

Over a period of several years' time my collection grew, along with my love and appreciation of these rare and limited materials. One thing led to another, and it got to the point that either I was going to be subjected to an intervention on a TV hoarding show, or else I was going to share my obsession.That's when the idea for Vintage Bead Cache was hatched.

Welcome to my little corner of Etsy. I hope you find a treasure that will inspire you to create something wonderful with a piece of jewelry history.

    There's a photo of me at age 5, dressed in grandma's best dress, with cherry red lipstick, curls piled atop my head and a beautiful strand of mid-century beads encircling my neck. Beads link me to memories of a time, a place, and a beloved person.
