A little introduction:
Presently I am still working full time as a costume designer / seamstress for the sport of figure skating. My work caters from the beginner and up to the elite skater at the International level. Collecting vintage costume jewelry was a hobby for many years and then it became a part time job selling at local shows. It definitely is a passion, some say obsession, no matter, I love the hunt and finding that special piece. Several times a year I still do shows so that I can meet my clients on a regular basis and offer them a special item I found just for them. My online shops are a new venture where I am meeting a whole new range of friends and clientele, I am loving this new chapter in my life !!
Favorite item in your shop?
It is difficult to choose one favorite item as I love everything I sell but I must say that Sherman jewelry is special. Presently, I have a wonderful Sherman peacock blue rhinestone brooch listed (pictured above). This wonderful pin has marquise abs stones and chatons on the top tier, which graduate in size from small to large on either end of the curve, just beautiful.
What got you started selling online?
I am a lover of vintage and have been collecting and selling at local shows for many years. Several months ago I decided that I would like to have an online presence and chose Ruby Plaza , last month I opened my second shop on Ruby Lane. As with any new venture it takes hard work and time to be recognized, but I do believe I will have successful shops in the future. I have met many wonderful shop owners on Ruby Plaza and Ruby Lane who are so helpful with advice, a big thank you. !!!
