About UsMy love of antique jewelry began in the 1970s when my mother introduced me to a fabulous Georgian ring. By the end of the 70s we were doing antique shows in Maryland, Washington, and Pennsylvania. Sadly, my mom and inspiration passed away and in 1980 we relocated to California. Back at work in a demanding career, I did not resume my antique business until the late 80s. I started slowly doing a show here and there but by the 90s I was doing 10 – 12 shows a year in San Francisco and the East Bay. With a grandchild on the way, we retired early and moved back to the east coast where I immediately set up business in the Fredericksburg Antique Mall in historic old town and began working on weekends and often during the week. I have retired from being the manager of the mall but continue to help out when I am available.
As a member of the Victorian Ladies Society of Fredericksburg, I have been asked to and given lectures on antique jewelry to various societies. I specialize in Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Retro jewelry in gold and silver. Along the way, I have accumulated some vintage estate jewelry including signed Mexican and Scandinavian pieces.
