  1. I have this set too. No boxes though darn it.
  2. Delightful! You have such wonderful jewels.
  3. Sorry I can't help you. I usually only buy this style to harvest the vintage beads - but only if it's broken :-)
  4. Nice old beads! - what a fun collection. The black and light green? might be old Lucite. It was patented in 1930's. Clear Lucite also nice and easy to wear. Love everything - great eye as always Gund...
  5. Nice old beads - I think choker. Usually there are size 11 or larger seed beads between crystal and bakelite beads that allow for movement and also so the crystal doesn't scratch the bakelite. Howeve...
  6. Thank you Mani - sorry, I missed your love click. Elisabeth - thanks for loving and commenting on these pins. It was so fun to get these! Sorry I've been out of touch, will catch up.
  7. All so beautiful.
  8. Thank you friends for your loves: watchsearcher, Thomas, Fort, Kyra, aura?, Kevin - much appreciated. Lori - thanks yes nice to have friends. We don't all like or collect the same things. But I l...
  9. Keramikos is amazing with research!
  10. Love these!
  11. Lovely, but lot's of internet research for Eisenberg. What have you learned about this?
  12. Looks like 1950's tourist items, or newer - very lovely
  13. Love to add items to treasures.
  14. Yes, watch fob. These are plentiful online for research.
  15. Stunning!
  16. Wow Bill - I love your newest haul, yes I am getting a bit more brave to do a road trip next month. I agree the copper bracelet is souvenir 60's-70. I always love the tiny lingerie pins (2 rows below...
  17. Hi, I just emailed you. Look forward to our "chat".
  18. Thanks Eileen for your nice comment looking at these copper oldies again. I have never seen working men with copper bracelets - I also had Dad and brothers probably same timeframe as your family. They...
  19. I love rhinestone bracelets - this is great!
  20. Very nice my friend!
  21. Soft cloud and sky colors! Lovely.
  22. She's a tourist item and gorgeous!
  23. I love your peace and war post! SO lovely dove brooch, I really love it, appeals to my bird world. Also cool army housewife kit :-)
  24. Thank you Eileen - it is really lovely, but not mine. Oh well. Sometimes it's just as good to photograph and research. Thanks CW friends for your loves - aura, kiva, Maureen XOXO
  25. Some great finds Bill! I like the compact and the white rhinestone pins - also the plain silver circle pin is pretty neat. And the knot cuff! Looks like it was a fun day my friend!
  26. Hi Eileen - great to hear from you, glad you had a good time camping w/family. News says Yosemite is open? Weird here too that certain hikes are closed. I've been on a few in Santa Monica Mtns. last f...
  27. Bill, thank you. In a few weeks I will know if I'm redundant.... My family is far away, so I'm going to load my car with great music for a California trip since it will probably be my only vacation in...
  28. What a gorgeous creation using the yellow twisted beads and sunflower motif - Very Nice! Looks great, plus the earrings. I am not a fan of that etsy seller. I bought several times - once they lost...
  29. Maureen - love this, have to ask where are thrift stores open? I only know of one open here on June 21, Long Beach Antique swap meet - yay! But, I won't go. I would like to but don't have any $ to spe...
  30. Wonderful!
  31. This is very pretty! I also look forward to seeing you complete this set. :-)
  32. Share I have a lot of costume jewelry books. I love this one "Collecting Art Plastic Jewelry", Leigh Leshner 2005. A similar cuff is featured on p 112 for $125. But, the market is a lot different now ...
  33. Lisa - thank you so much. This is nicer than the ones I researched. Green and black painted enamel is intricate - not blocky malachite or turquoise look. But, it isn't mine so I have to figure out h...
  34. Thanks kyra!! Share is a treasured friend. And this is a great present from her. XOXO
  35. Jenni - isn't it though!! Thanks for your comment. fhrjr2 - thank you about the 800 info. I didn't want to shine this up. Looking at it again I think there is also gold "gilt"? along the border. My...
  36. Thanks Elisabeth, would love to complete with brooch...and another earring of course. Thanks mcheconi and Gillian for your loves.
  37. Me too Share!! Pinching definitely as painful as pinched toes in high heels LOL. Thank you everyone for your loves: Ken, aura, Kevin, Jenni, fort, kyra, Jean, Thomas, MrsT, mcheconi! XOXO
  38. Share - is it better this week? I went out Sat. and heard a great Springsteen tribute band, sat safely out on the patio. It was not crowded - but no one inside had masks on which was a little sad. Eve...
  39. Elisabeth - wow! thanks, I didn't know that about Scandinavian artisans but it makes sense! Certainly both cultures knew how to make timeless, sleek designs. I have some more "modernist" Mexican silve...
  40. Thanks Bill! Yes, I am still planning to visit. This week I paid for new brakes and the car seems to be working pretty darn good. Long Beach antique swap meet opens next Sunday! Glad you liked this pi...
  41. These are so great! I'm sure you will enjoy coffee in style!
  42. These are wonderful!
  43. Beautiful ocean and sky blues!
  44. These beads are so wonderful - I love the color of green and the specks of black and gold. Very nice! I can't find any examples online of this interesting twisted bead. I love it and am sure you wil...
  45. Thanks Kevin and Gudrun for your loves!
  46. Gudrun - we didn't get to go anywhere either and the state of CA forced my company to pay out 1 week vacation time so my unemployment was delayed a week. I'm still on furlough thru end of June. Haven...
  47. Yes Karen WTF is going on? This is a perfect pin for the times....if I ever get back to work. Some of my stores are opening, but my company is waiting to put all merchandisers from California back to ...
  48. Yes, I'm Scorpio too. LOL
  49. So nice! Sorry, not sure but it does look 1970's. Beautiful stone and design!
