Bet that title got your attention! Well it wasn’t quite like that. I WAS wearing clothes, but it’s WHAT I was wearing that was the problem.

“Whenever you are offered a new opportunity, just say yes and then figure out how to do it. Remember that you have to want it more than you are afraid of it. The biggest boundaries that we face in our lives are very often the ones that we create ourselves in our minds. The boundaries of our achievement are primarily self-imposed. I say to you, look inside yourself to find the personal courage to explore and expand your horizons.

When Dupuis’ beautiful, glossy and expensively produced catalogue arrived in my mailbox about a month ago, my heart rate shot up in a second. I’d been waiting since October 2010 to attend another of their high end auctions ... such a classy, polished and well-organized event where I could at least look like I could afford to be there even if I couldn’t, and where I get to sample delectable caviar canapes and gourmet coffees at no charge!

I purchased a pair of earrings with the name Laurel Burch printed on the back. So I decided to research her name and find out what I could about Laurel Burch. The story and pictures I found about her life were quite interesting to me so I decided to share the story with everyone in my blog. Many collectors have been drawn to her by her spirit and her beautiful designs that have been touched by her life.

As someone who has collected jewelry made by Gustave Sherman for many years, I have seen my share of his beautiful creations. I have collected everything from the most basic glittering rhinestone earrings all the way up to the most sought after rigid cuff bracelets. Throughout my collecting, I have seen several different styles of his Mark and other pieces that I know without a doubt are made by Sherman even though there is no stamp.

For those of you who reckon jewelry has to be from the 1900-1960's to be collectible I have a wake up call for you. The newest look in collectible vintage jewelry comes from The Bay area of San Francisco.
Flash back to 1975.With all the psychedelic bands ,theater and op and pop art. This is the time when a group of artists got together to form a design company called Parrot Pearls...a very appropriate name as the jewelry was comprised of glazed ceramics in brilliant colors like jungle birds and some of the pieces were in fact parrots. With bodies 4 inches long dangling from multi colored pottery beads.
Among the thousand of original designs are colorful fruits and vegetables like watermelons,bananas ,cherries and berries of all varieties.
Or how about animals .Cow, pigs, lions, tigers, dogs and cats.

Collectors of better end vintage jewelry are probably well aquainted with the name Kramer. Their designs are very collectible today and highly sought after.
Kramer Jewelry Creations was founded in 1943 in New York by Louis Kramer and continued in operation until 1979-80, when they closed their doors.. He was joined by his two brothers, Morris and Harry. However, Louis is credited with the design of the superior Kramer Jewelry.
