Lots in the Works!

I'm stocked up on supplies and ready to go!  Up next is Christmas jewelry and little girls birthday party favor jewelry.  The beads are so fun that I don't know where to start!

Also in works - plenty more vintage jewelry I will be listing for sale on Etsy.  I have found just how much I love Bell Copper Trading Post jewelry, and collect it whenever I can.  I'm going to have a hard time parting with it, and I know my mother-in-law has her eye on one of my rings too.

I have so many ideas for fun pendants, doll jewelry and hair clips that I will have to shelf until I have several pieces of Christmas jewelry done and listed....there just aren't enough hours in the day!  And here I thought I'd have nothing but time being "retired"!  So not true!  Between keeping up with the house, Listia and Etsy I am actually working full time again.

Here is a link to a VERY nice, excellent vintage condition Krementz set in original packaging on Etsy.  It is even more beautiful in person!  Check it out if you'd like to add it to your collection!

Join Me on Listia?

I just love this site.  I acquired the Willi Noonenmann brooch in my previous post through this site for free!  Well, not 100% free, you have to give stuff away for credits to spend, but if you're like me, I give away stuff I don't want anymore anyway!

Vintage Designer Jewelry

I just love vintage jewelry, and this has got to be my favorite acquisition to date.  It is absolutely beautiful.  It is from the 1930's by German designer Willi Nonnenmann.  The few other pieces I have seen of his have the same delicate filigree as seen here:
