vetraio50
(498 items)

This is one of two that were bought for my sister in law, but she didn't like them. I just thought they were nice. Maybe not? Too Goth? The jet is facetted and the chain of this one is dark too.

Thought I'd put this one on a Martin Boyd vase to show it off.

I have a few pieces of costume jewellery that I've collected over the years. At markets you can come across interesting stuff, but these days I get beaten to the costume jewels. The sharks are out and when they smell blood it becomes a feeding frenzy. I tend to stay clear of it all.

Collecting can be hazardous to your health!

    My sister was a huge collector of costume jewelry. She has an amazing collection. She feels the same as you do...sharks! No longer looking for the costume, shame as she really had an eye.
    We girls are picky about our jewelry. Hopefully your SIL was gracious about declining your present.

    Many thanks Bellin and to you too Amber. I forgave her! Jet is a bit dark, isn't it?

    the sharks look for all kinds of things but jewellery does seem to whip them into a hysterical state!
    whereas I am just a hunter looking for my prey>>>
  4. ozmarty ozmarty, 2 years ago
    Jet or French Jet?
  5. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Jet can be awesome. Might be scratchy??
  6. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Ni Marty! Please explain the difference between the two jets.
    Jet Jackson and Joan Jett?
  7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    One is glass and t'other is mineral?
  8. ozmarty ozmarty, 2 years ago
    Correct Vet, French jet is Black glass when used to imitate real jet (Lignite) in jewellery.

  29. vetraio50 vetraio50, 12 months ago
    Hi SEAN. It's an Australian pottery Martin Boyd. 1950's - 60's. This one is a bit unusual in its form. I used to have a very big collection of MB.
