fter Mom passed in March of this year, I inherited all of hers and her Mother's jewelry. There is a bit of fine jewelry, but more fascinating is the large amount of costume jewelry. 90% of the costume jewelry belonged to my Grandmother.
She was born in early 1900's, so any amount of jewelry that would have likely been accumulated from 30's to 70's (late). She died in early 80's. She seemed to LOVE brooches, Canadian Maple leaves, etc.
This necklace and earrings I've hesitated to post as I'm not sure that it can be considered Vintage much less what it could be made of. Any ideas?
So many kind friends helped identify that each one of these beads was HAND PAINTED (that was painstaking) Venetian glass beads and true 'keepers'. Millefiori design.
