About UsI've been a "collector" all of my life-as a child it was an assortment of the usual "sparkles" and shells, and the unusual "odd" things! I still have a few "Egg Rocks" from the "Egg Beach" in Bar Harbor, Maine (rocks washed down by sea water to a smooth feel and "egg-shape"). In my late 20's, as my career in Costume and Fashion progressed I began collecting vintage jewelry and other "odds and ends" that struck my fancy.
I now have a large collection of vintage jewelry and collectibles that I have meticulously researched. During my travels I have also met many other collectors who have developed great expertise, and I can rely on them for additional information and "unofficial" appraisals.
My professional background is in Fashion, Artisan Jewelry, and Costume Design. I spent a number of years as a Costumer in Los Angeles working in the film and television industry. As an "official shopper," a wardrobe department designation, I was lucky enough to be able to have FUN while I worked, and had a chance to learn even more about both modern and historical clothing, accessories, and jewelry while shopping and designing for film and TV productions.
I opened this Ruby Lane Shop in order to share some of my vintage finds and other collectibles, and as an exclusive avenue to display and sell my handcrafted jewelry. The handcrafted jewelry presented in my Ruby Lane Shop is Exclusive and will not be offered elsewhere.
