  1. My experience at Long Beach: take $10 or $1000 - you will spend it ALL. And, that's why I'm not going. I love the Long Beach swap meet. Sellers enjoy haggling, lots of great things to buy at every pr...
  2. Very popular in the 1980's.
  3. geez, sorry about misspellings.
  4. Gudrun, maybe they don't go together because this is a personal creation. I share your interest in Brutal to 70's artisan crafted. SO GREAT., that is still under appreciated. You have many "Brutal, 70...
  5. Bill - I Love Sisters communications! I have 3, we do that too trading back and forth. This is a very sweet butterfly. :)
  6. Jenni - I love this! What a find - lovely colors! It's so big...I guess it was worn on a trapeze coat (example Pauline Trigere style) Doesn't seem right for fur although the prongs are hefty... always...
  7. Lovely as always!
  8. Interesting, someone made this. Do you remember the TV commercial "don't hate me because I'm beautiful". I always think of that....don't hate me because I'm Brutiful....lol
  9. No, it is not bakelite, the speckled brown beads are probably a nice resin, maybe lucite. Hard to say not seeing and holding it. Bakelite doesn't have this type of pattern.
  10. Very pretty, is it glass or plastic? Looks like glass and maybe not too old based on the chain, but hard to say.
  11. That is a possibility! I know that our lovely newsladies here in LA wear handmade or designer company jewelry that their stylists "borrow" for the exposure. Or, they are gifts or (duh) the newscaster'...
  12. Carved bone, but I am not sure of origins since it's not my style either. Quality design and knotting :-)
  13. Thank you Elisabeth! I love this bird. As for the bracelet - same showed up on Rubylane and the seller said it was a Diana Von Furstenburg bracelet, and it was bakelite. However, mine seems to be a v...
  14. Thank you Elisabeth - I am a big fan of green as you know! Yes, we will meet again and hopefully look at our treasures together. Thanks for all the loves friends!
  15. Well, I love these bracelets and you to boot :)
  16. Great bakelite beads! It looks like someone up-cycled these pretty green bakelite beads 1930's-50's?) using 70's metal connector beads. Very nice find!
  17. A gift? That's wonderful :-) From what I can see in your pictures you have a bracelet made with popular new stones from China, I go to Tucson and GemFaire and have also purchased like stones. Also bl...
  18. Thank you Elisabeth - they are great - might not be pretty to some, but having the set is my goal!! XOXO Thank you friends for your loves.
  19. "to boot" means special extra great. I think it originated with Vaudeville comedians telling jokes and then saying something under their breath or with facial expressions to the audience which makes e...
  20. So darling!
  21. Wonderful! Great pictures of the details too. Wear them in best of health :-)
  22. I love this necklace. The colors are SO pretty! Great photos too.
  23. Celluloid, over-dyed and carved. 1920's or 30's.
  24. Elisabeth - thanks for your love! These faceted black beads are called English cut. Lots of them around and always work well when upcycling or restoring old necklaces.
  25. Thank you Elisabeth! These are really nice, very light and quiet. You can stack up your arm and enjoy without annoying others (ha ha!!). Not celluloid, these are 60's lucite. I also have some nice ta...
  26. I love the Eagles. I love Joe Walsh!!. I had a best concert experience in 2014 at LA Forum, maybe one of the last Glen Frey shows.
  27. I love when CW friends comment - Plein air, Jenni, Eileen!! It feels like we are sitting together enjoying your wonderful jewels!
  28. Sorry that I sounded rude, but there's a lot about these pikake beads on the internet. And, my post from last year. I guess I was surprised that you didn't do any research. https://www.collectorsweek...
  29. Rob, yes memories. My favorite beer opener says Murphy funeral home which reminds me of my family but doesn't have any connection at all with us. Well, here's to you! I have just opened a beer and ...
  30. Post on Facebook's free purse collector site. It's really great, CW doesn't have a strong purse collector community - I wish they did! But, you can do better by going to the FB sites.
  31. There is a very good Facebook free purse group. They will know.
  32. Is this really Mexican? Maybe fairly new? It's......I can' t even nicely finish my thought, so just say "not my style". Love you dear.
  33. Really? What a joke.
  34. Very beautiful! Thanks for providing research and dimensions Beautiful!!!
  35. Is it Monday already? Fort, you have amazing collection of 60's and 70's matchbox that my brothers used to have. Big love. :)
  36. As a owner of birds - they would love this - so nice Tfish!
  37. So great! Thanks for your research! I hope someone will chime in. I had a few 1960's dresses that would have been a beautiful complement....they were so tiny, I sold them a long time ago.
  38. Well, I have to say these are so amazing!! Thanks for sharing. I love them both.
  39. So many great comments! Wow from me! As always, wonderful items in your collection dear Jenni. :)
  40. So gorgeous, wow! Dimensions? Thank you...
  41. Eileen - yes and no. Yes, celluloid plastic is very old. These carved lovelies are mainly from Japan after WWII which I believe is the timeframe for these as well. There are 1920-30's celluloid jewelr...
  42. Agree w/Eileen and looks great with your other bracelets.
  43. So great to find treasures! Pretty carved pattern. Way to go....
  44. Wow! I love it, And looks like it has an ornate chain too. Pretty darn cool! I love your profile picture - you are so gorgeous!
  45. I love that chick (picker) too. What a find! Not sure about your sterling pin. Very pretty though my friend.
  46. Yes, how great! They are an amazing band. I think Netflix has a doc, it's very good. Love your rock on message :)
  47. Ha Bill are you talking about the scaly one or the cactus skeleton - ha ha - both old fossils! I will check, I have a metal kit somewhere in this sorry mess....and thank you very much for the link. I ...
  48. Love to you Eileen - yes, your mother would have enjoyed this funky ring! It's really wonderful. Thanks!
  49. Yes Jenni, it's a pinky size 5, and would look dramatic holding a cocktail glass, toasting to CW friends! The stone pottery critter animal is about 3"x3". It might be from Guerrero.
  50. Thank you for first loves Gudrun and Watchsearcher. And to Jenni for commenting right away about this. I love ethnic jewelry. This was a perfect for me.
  51. See more
