Here you see part of my collection simple jet necklaces. I also have some french jet but I like the regular jet more because it has such a great matt finish to it.
I seem to find them on every flea market I visit. Death was everywhere in the old days. Some children never saw there mothers wear anything other than black. So I guess thats why I find so many of them.
Some people find it strange I collect mourning jewelry. But if you give me half a chance I will collect any type of jewelry I can find :-)
These jet necklaces are part of our past. think they are beautiful and I enjoy wearing them.
I hope you enjoy them too.

    Lucky you! I learned about jet in one of my books and found it very interesting. I have not come across one single piece of jet jewelry during the almost two years I have been collecting. The only thing I found is some French jet - love the feel of it - but it's not the real thing. I guess I have to go hunting for my little treasures somewhere else:)

    I forgot to mention: I love the last photo; it shows the glow.

    Wonderful! Black is always in fashion nowdays, but sadly lots of death in the past w/influenza and then both wars. I have some matt black beads - I didn't realize it was jet - just thought it was "glass". I've found more of the shiny faceted beads here and I agree - there's a lot of it around.
