Wanna See My Costume Jewelry Collection?


Love the look of vintage costume jewelry, but don’t have the patience to dig through antique shops to find it? Don’t worry I’ll do the hard work for you. That is what our entire Les Classiques section is about. All the pieces rings, pins, purses, bracelets and necklaces are vintage costume jewelry some of it signed! Yesterday we added 10 new vintage necklaces to Naughty Secretary Club ranging in age from the 1940’s to the 1970’s. Take a peek and treat yourself.

As an added bonus I got to thinking about my own stash of vintage costume jewelry I have around the house and thought you might like to take a closer looksie. You have seen some of these pieces before in the How Ya Hanging Jewelry Display post and if you took the virtual tour of my entire house on Apartment Therapy things might look familiar, but these are all new pictures. Hope you like!

    OMG!!! You inspire me to dig out my collection hiding in various drawers and boxes and put it on display, but then I would have to figure where to put all the skating pieces that are currently out. Perhaps if I hung some on a quilt like the Sonja quilt that is embellished with Ice Follies’ jewelry. Oops, the light bulb just went off for a retro quilt to display jewelry.

    Digifigi – I used to have all my jewelry in boxes and drawers but it is just too pretty to keep hidden away.

    Kathy – I just wrote a book review of Artful Sewing today and was thinking about you, will be going live on Cinco de Mayo! Thanks for the nice words about the pictures. I could make them into cards I guess I have done that before with my photographs for Reply

    Wow how cool! I love all of those vintage pins too….they remind me of the 70’s. I use to have so much of that stuff growing up and then gave it all away. You might even have some of my stuff 😉
    Now I keep and collect all kinds of vintage jewelry..it is so fun to wear!P.S. I agree with Kathy(the crafty chica)Your collection pics would make great cards and stationary.

    The pins certainly, the earing holders (with a little cropping), the tray of rings, and the wall of earrings. The pix are a little yellow or lacking contrast, but nothing that can’t be fixed with photo editing software.

    That is a crazy amount of jewelry. I heart it when people have just absolutely mad collections of things.

    You are insane – in a good way of course 🙂 I love all the flower pins. I’m not a jewelry girl, but I could wear a different one of those every day.

    The jewelry is amazing! Looks like someone has as much as I do, and I didn't think that was possible. I love the pins. All the displays are beautiful.
