Comments

  1. I think these are from the 90's, Thailland. I remember seeing these shapes and interesting mix of stones. Nice.
  2. Sorry, wish I knew.
  3. Gorgeous and thank you for your research!
  4. I'm not sure how old this is, but these type of frames are worth saving. You could simply do a clean and wood oil rub.
  5. Great kyratization - Bark! :-)
  6. Love finding items to complete sets so gorgeous!
  7. I would LOVE to own more red rhinestone jewelry. This is so beautiful!!
  8. Laura - sounds like it was a wonderful trip. I am still thinking about a NY road trip this summer :-)
  9. I love your collection and the way you displayed it. So beautiful with the bottles in the window.
  10. Congratulations on your exhibition: wonderful, colorful, beautiful, is it okay to use these old-fashioned adjectives?! Amazing - you are very talented!
  11. Yes - the soundtrack of our lives! I went out about 20 miles away to hear live music last night (what...on a school night?) which might not seem like a big deal, but I don't have parking so it's risky...
  12. Kyra - thanks again - I've purchased some "not quite the exact fit" mountings too and you have given a great tutorial on how to close the gaps to snuggle up to the gem.
  13. Ken, I'm excited to see your bracelets. I prefer wearing a brooch (like every brooch you have!!!) and matching or coordinating bracelets. I love matching earrings and pendants, but I tend to wear pins...
  14. Beautiful color and design Eileen - rest of it is chain? What do you think - 1920's-30's?
  15. Our experts will know - love the muted green or grey rhinestones. Love These :-)
  16. Yes my friend - It Never Ends :-) Gorgeous - 1950's or 60's?
  17. Very nice....could it match your clamper bracelet?https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/246063-vintage-trifari-clamper-bracelet
  18. Rose, what a sweet comment! Keep your eye out for the bracelet please. :-) I see an orange set on ebay for $649. I'm sure I can find a bracelet to match, how much $$$ is the question. Thank you fri...
  19. Eileen - I have a major dental bill coming up too....and I just keep postponing it LOL. Thanks for loving this! It rained today in Long Beach and windy all day. Thanks also to friends who love c...
  20. What a lovely result! So creative. It is gorgeous:-)
  21. Yes agree, it is best not to dip an item because different grade of silver might be used in the item. Maybe you could take a Q-tip or toothbrush and see what you can do to clean the white off. Pretty ...
  22. I was also born in Florida and returned later in the middle of the 80's Miami Vice era. I worked for an Ad Agency - we had some interesting clients, it might have been a front. It was a little scary w...
  23. Very fun! Very snappy! Love this gator, from your FL friend, Mary
  24. Laura I love all of these! I can't pick a favorite. XOXO
  25. Great post and research! Thank you for caring about this family bible.
  26. This color is so pretty.
  27. I am very happy to hear that Moody Blues, Bon Jovi and the Cars were inducted to the Hall Of Fame. Every time I feel a little sad I play this song by the Moody Blues and it helps. https://www.you...
  28. Oh, plus I love you because you Love Music!! Thanks for sharing my friend.
  29. But the graphics are really pretty great. :-)
  30. But love them! Not saying anything bad my friend :-)
  31. Midwestern F. Scott. He is recorded on tape.
  32. Imitating Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers in the graphics for this.
  33. lentilka - :DDD Yes, I am an addicted plastaholic, dag nam it.
  34. Gorgeous - love it and thank you for adding the poster.
  35. bratjdd - thanks I love earthtone colors too and these 4 look great together. Rose - No Kidding! At least I am on the first step - admitting my addiction. I shouldn't joke, this is a shopping addi...
  36. Great price on a nice Summer set! Will you start adding bracelets to your Trifari museum? :-)
  37. Ken, please keep your eye open for a brooch to match the Trifari bracelet I just posted. Last night I shined it up and it's so much prettier. Hard to believe it isn't gold filled, oh well. I love Trif...
  38. I love leaf and flower pins too. Would be fun to put a group together on a vintage tote bag or jean jacket....:-)
  39. Very pretty!
  40. Agree - lovely photos of lovely items :-)
  41. So beautiful - agree - love blue with white rhinestones. :-)
  42. Thanks everyone for your nice comments: Jenni - I love it too and am excited to find the bracelet to match - dang, probably will be a lot of $$$. Share - Agree about enjoying the hunt. That's w...
  43. Thank you Jenni! 50's at their best? - XOXO Mary
  44. Hi Phil - yes, it's really beautiful and interesting - dimensional, hefty metal - very nice. I love the older Trifari items - so many that Ken has in his collection, I think this is even older 1950's.
  45. Hi Share - no the bracelet is flexible with metal chain. Pretty nice Trifari construction. Wouldn't it be cool if this was gold??? XOXO
  46. Hi Ken - I looked through your posts too and couldn't find an exact match - some close, but let's not give up. 1950's correct? I should have mentioned that it's threaded with metal chain. I am sure yo...
  47. You should retake your photos Gudrun - it's impossible to see what this is.
  48. Hi Gudrun, is this like yours?
  49. Thank you Sean - yes, it's a very dramatic bracelet. Always had it with my Egypt items.
  50. Malkey - thank you for your comments - bakelite is so silky smooth!! I love how perfect it looks even 80 years later. XOXO Tigra - yes thank you it's beautiful!! MrsT - thank you, it has a sop...
