    My fellow jewelry collector and friend Valentino visited my country this summer. We met on CW and has been intouch by e-mail since 2015. The 3rd of July I had the joy of meeting her in real life in Stockholm. It was so great, I just love her!

    Collecting vintage and antique jewelry is not so big in my country. So I am grateful for my fellow jewelry collectors here on CW, so I can read about your finds and share with you.
    Valentino brought me the most loveable and wonderful jewelry that I want to share here. Also see other posts from today. Valentino has made the wonderful stone necklace, the charming red bakelite/Lucky lady/copper necklace and the elegant brownswirl/bakelite necklace. She also gave me a cool bangle from the grand canyon. Her sister made the lovely jewelry bag. Thanks my friend!!!! I love the gifts.

      Thank you, it was so great to spend time w you in Stockholm!! My computer is not working (can I blame that on 2 big earthquakes lol) but I have posts for CW planned. Your pictures show the colors very nicely. This is a 40s or 50's backgammon game piece. Thank you friend for meeting and laughing about life. We have so much in common! Xoxo

      What fun that our California Girl went to Sweden and met up with another CW collector!
      Amazing to reach across the globe, as we do daily here, but in real life!
      So happy for the two of you. And yes, Mary makes beautiful Bakelite jewelry. Treasure them Elisabeth!

      Yes and thankyou Jennie! CW is great that way. I stubled across CW by considence and just loved it. Such a great community of collectors and a brilliant idea. Here people get my interest :) that other friends cant. I think you have to be a collectors at hart to understand the satisfaction and interest. I have lately been a bit absent from CW, just life with work etc and my time has been taken up by other things but I still love to return here. Meeting Mary made me eager to be more on CW again.
      I feel lucky having been able to meet Mary. It was wonderful. Have a nice day Jenni, my fellow CW friend.

      Yes thankyou Ms.ChrystalShip I do treasure my Mary jewelry :). Yes we do reach across the globe on CW even if I think most on here are in the US. It is a nice community of collectors. Yes it was fantastic to be able to meet in real life and it feels special that Mary has now seen my country. It was great in so meny ways. I have promised myself to be more on CW in the future. I am looking forward to that.
