The collector soul in me was born :) Today I am a jewelry collector and my collection is wide due to the fact that I am very interested in jewelry history and how it can be seen in fashion, arcitecture and also how jewelry fashion has evolved when times have changed. It is somewhat a democratic process as new materials made it possible to make less expensive jewelry that became afordable to a larger group. I collect all kinds of jewelry that I find special, afordable and wearable. I am not so fascinated by valuable and fine metals or stones as such, but much more drawn to what style it represents, era, coloreffects or meaning. My favourite era is around 1880-1930. But I will go beyond that for the right piece :) I only buy pieces I plan to wear as I think that is the whole point with jewelry. Jewelry is art to be worn and shown to others. So I am not creating a museum, instead I am creating a living jewelry exibition and every day I show a piece from it by wearing a piece of jewelry from my collection. I don't hesitate to lend my jewelry to family and close friends as long as they are careful with them. I love for others to see and learn more about vintage and antique jewelry. That is why CW is so great, we learn from each other! (Read more)

  1. Tell us more about the Cross.
  2. They are pritty. In the 80's it was popular with small pins/brooches that had the same simple way of fastening them to your sweater or collar. I wonder if this is also how these were intended to be us...

  27. So one of your Bal-Bala is playing the dombra :)?
  28. Oh it only took me an hour :) but now I know I am right for sure. Look at this sight and the thin small photo on the very top, your dolls from Kazakstan! https://www.minzifatravel.com/kazakhstan-souve...
  29. After having searched "womens traditional hats" and searched some more I found these photos. From that I think these dolls are from Kazakstan. I also found an article that said the country exports wat...
  30. Hello, I don't know how old it is but I know it is for fishing close to or in the reed without getting caught in it. Different types of this are still made. Have two of them myself in my fishing box.

  40. Hi friend! I think it is mexican. Search "mexican cuff greek key" and you will see that the pattern has been used in mexican jewelry. Mexican means great jewelry ofcourse :)
  41. Are you kidding me? Which the name was "dad the iron" :)

  46. I bet it is! Such a great idea. Yes you must!
  47. Great Kyratango! They are so Lovely these turtle brooches! Love everything about them.
