Launching grand new collections both in writing: Jewelry Collecting and in jewelry design “Daydream Facets Collection"


My interests have turned to jewelry collecting… What types of jewelry do you collect? What are the most sought after pieces in a given genre? How do I know about the markings on jewelry pieces of interest? What major jewelry manufacturing was produced in Providence RI (I've lived in RI all my life)...the "Jewelry Capitol of the World". All of these questions have been bouncing around in my head so I decided to write a series of Hubs around these very questions. I invite you to check my hubs frequently and let me know if these articles are of value to you. As always, I am open to comments and suggestions and your opinions are very valuable to me… feel free to contact me!! Here is the first in the series of Hubs: Coro Jewelry


Yet to be posted in my Etsy store…. "Faceted Fantasy Bracelet" This is the second in my new collection called: Daydream Facets. Veil Nebula Bracelet was the original piece that started this collection. I plan to develop this line- adding earrings, necklaces and bracelets all with wonderful faceted gems. Keep an eye out!



Lastly for this post, here is my latest in custom Rosary Beads headed for the UK today!
