    1980: I was 20 w/my first real job as a graphic artist in a cool old dumpy print shop in downtown Omaha. Lunch often spent nearby at St. Vincent d Paul, Lutheran thrift, Council thrift, Salvation Army, Goodwill (yes - this was my neighborhood). I couldn't afford much but copper jewelry was very cheap. I started the collection w/25 cent earrings. Since then and now in CA my collection has grown to over 200 pieces - yet probably half came from the early prowling around the midwest.

    Over the years I have completed sets. I love finding the last pieces that are considered "parure".

    I recommend "Copper Art Jewelry - A different lustre" by Burkholz and Kaplan for other copper nuts. This is an excellent source for info.

      What a great collection! I think your nieces will love them - especially if you educate them about the pieces as they grow so they appreciate them. :-)

      Very nice pieces, I love copper as well, and I sell a lot of Renoir and Rebajes. That Ubangi brooch is a really desirable piece, they're going for good money on eBay

      Thank you for your comment. I like the silver w/green too. It isn't marked but It's pretty great.

      I love these tribal art pieces and especially the one in the far right top looks super expensive !~
