Nice jewels Mil. Those super old ear screws belonged to a sweet little old lady who wore her hair in a tight bun secured by white bobby pins (the black ones showed too much), wore Chanel 5 and Red Estee Lauder lip color. She drove an avocado green buick her husband bought for their 40th anniversary, the last big gift he ever bought her. She loved to wear those screws when she played bridge and "ran around." They were purchased by her husband for their 15th wedding annieversary. Maybe?

Thank you William.....but couldn't you have told me what year????


Can't wait to see the...YUMMY blog tomorrow. I'm salivating in antcipation.

Stop making fun of us artsy, craftsy bloggers. Stop it.


Oooh, talk about mouth-watering eye candy! These are gorgeous, thanks for sharing them. Well, not literally sharing them, of course, just the pictures! ;) LOL!

beautiful pieces!love the pinks and blues!


Gorgeous trinkets! I love the last pair, they fit right into my Addams glamour style.

I'd venture they're probably 30s/early 40s when there was a huge craze for ethnic things, but they could be older. They may be Edwardian era but not from a Western country- perhaps Mexico or Portugal.

Dunno- total wild guess!

You have a lovely collection. Thank you for sharing.



Serious drooling over here!!! You have an incredible collection...each and every piece is just stunning!!! I hear ya about the busy thing. This whole weekend I felt like I had to try and accomplish stuff in 2 hour intervals, because I kept having to drop everything in run a taxi service. It is amazing I got anything done at all (and believe me, it was not much). I did manage to do my jewelry post, but the project I started oh maybe 2 weeks ago only got a teeny bit more done on it.


Oh wow! I can't choose a favorite. I loved all your pictures on your flickr account, too. The pictures with lots of pieces just makes me drool. ha-ha

Incredible collection of jewels, can you imagine if they were able to tell their stories of adventure, how they found their way to you and how much they'd like a chance to shine again in some new way.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful collection with us all in blog land.
