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 value of 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 - 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 - in my daily life - I show wear 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 because it sais something about the time it was created. Costume jewelry can be magnificent. Were I live vintage costume jewelry is not very saught after nor collected. So there really is not a lot of people, if any, to learn from here (I haven't found them). So when it comes to costume jewelry I really am at the beginning of my learningcurve. Hoping to learn more and to find interesting pieces. (Read more)
