Past, Present, Future - Costume Jewelry
“Real or fake, does it really matter? It is the beauty that counts, the boldness, the colors, the effect.” Paloma Piccaso - (Preface - Costume Jewelry in Vogue by Jane Mulvagh 1988)
Superb artistry & skill are first to come to mind when I think of vintage costume jewelry.
Handwork is the most valuable ingredient in costume jewelry; it's a work of art.
Unique design, style, variety & value remain a constant force in today’s fashion. Innovators, artists & designers of the past provide inspiration for current jewelry styles & trends and will continue to influence for many years into the future. I am humbled by their genius! Driven by my long-time love & admiration of vintage fashion, the class, the drama & the elegance of the past, I take lessons, inspiration, passion, pieces & parts of history to bring my version of vintage fashion jewelry into the world. Costume jewelry is timeless, expressive & fun. It is the most versatile accessory. Easily changed, it can elevate the simplest outfit. It should be enjoyed & played with. Go for it! Take a look; have fun! With timeless jewelry that’s always in fashion -
