  • Good enough to eat! Gorgeous Czech lime green art glass clip earrings. These are so eye-catching and very on trend colour wise. These vintage clip-on earrings have no stamp or markings and are very unusual. I have not come across any other earrings like this before and they are rare. They are made from well foiled bumpy art glass and are a very citrus green. They almost look like green fruit gums - like a green raspberry. They are claw set in a brass clip-on setting. These have significant age but are sturdy and well made. Each earring only weights 4 grams Measures 2.5cm x 2.5cm diameter.   Presented in a satin drawstring bag
  • Lovely lime green crystal flower clip earrings. These are so pretty and very on trend colour wise. These very light vintage clip-on earrings have a bicone crystal in the centre of the flower surrounded by a ring of round cut crystals in claw set gold tone circles. These are fun and funky and catch the light perfectly. Each earring only weights 3 grams Measures 2.5cm x 2.5cm diameter.   Presented in a satin drawstring bag.
  • Beautiful silver plated art nouveau poppy brooch. Made in the 1980s from a vintage brass French stamp. The brooch features delicate vine-like stems and leaves in a symmetrical nouveau pattern. This brooch is very elegant and captures the delicate ornate nouveau style. The pin has a solid rollover clasp. The brooch is in perfect condition and is now fairly rare. It was originally sold as a limited edition in high-end London stores. It looks beautiful on a jacket lapel but is light enough to wear on a dress or blouse. Also looks good on a scarf or bag. Measures 500mm x 500 mm but seems very light due to the open metalwork and thin stamping. Presented in a lovely satin drawstring pouch.
  • A beautiful Jewelcraft pearl enamel necklace. This is an unusual necklace signed by Jewelcraft. The central segment features a daisy type flower surrounded by smaller buds in glass and pearls with gold leaves. The necklace has white faux pearl and chain strands that have a hook clasp. There are 5 identical segments at the front that feature 4 black enamel flowers with central champagne coloured faux pearls. The necklace can be worn as a chocker or slightly longer due to the way it fastens - it probably dates from the 50s or 60s. I would describe the condition as very good with no missing stones. It really does look stunning on. Presented in a satin drawstring bag Necklace Length 460mm x width 30 mm at its widest part. Jewelcraft operated as the UK branch of Corocraft ( a major producer of costume jewellery in the United States).
  • Crisp and delicate white and purple beaded pearl flower earrings. Handmade beaded earrings made with white, amethyst and purple Delica and Japanese seed beads. These earrings feature vintage faux pearls encased in tiny seed and Delica beads and super duo beads shaped into a star shaped flower. Both sides of the earrings feature layers of beads and they are set on a sterling silver drop earring finding. The earrings are very light and hang really nicely in the ear.  The use of white beads make this almost like a wintry snowflake and they would be lovely as bridal earrings. Making jewellery from tiny seed beads takes a lot of time and patience. All the handmade beaded jewellery made by Lou McGill uses specialist beading thread or wire which is used on a beading needle to embroider beads of various sizes together or onto a backing. New stones and beads are always genuine Swarovski crystals and pearls, Japanese seed beads or Czech beads but she also re-uses stones, cabochons, crystals or beads from broken vintage jewellery. Recycling or upcycling old costume jewellery gives beautiful pieces or elements a new lease of life and a second opportunity to be worn and loved again. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag. Measurements beaded flower 350 mm x 350mm, Height (from top of earringl) 500mm
  • Famous Vivienne Westwood enamel orb pendant. This version is a large flat piece on a long silver metal belcher chain. There are lots of variants of the classic orb. This one has pink enamel with clear and pink rhinestones. It is in excellent condition (but without the original pouch and box). It is signed on the back of the orb and there is a signed tag on the chain. It is no longer available for sale and is rare. Measures 6.5cm x 5.5cm at its widest.  The chain measures 80 cm!  The orb hangs at 40cm. You can see from the photos where it sits. It is a fantastic statement piece and really stands out.

  • This is a really pretty Green aurora borealis rhinestone floral brooch. It has clawset bright AB round and marquis green rhinestones and tiny white clawset pearl petals around round green rhinestones. The aurora borealis stones provide rainbow colours when they catch the light. Probably from the 1950s it has a strong rollover clasp. Although large the open design means it does not feel or look too heavy. In the photos it looks quite blue. I have also taken a close up of what looks like a scratched signature but it is illegible. Measures 6cm x 6cm at its widest.  It is a statement piece and would look great on a formal jacket but equally good on a scarf or hat. I would describe the condition as good - with no stones missing but a bit of tarnish to the metal. Presented in a satin drawstring bag

  • Pastel rhinestone flower brooch, probably dating form the 40s or 50s. It is in a silver metal open form flower with round rhinestones in a variety of pastel colours - pink, blue, green, yellow. Around the flower are tiny daisies each with a central rhinestone also in pastel colours. The brooch has a c-clasp and the pin extends slightly beyond the brooch - which is why I think it may have been produced earlier. There is no signature but it feels quite sturdy and weighty and is in a lovely condition.  The rhinestones are made to appear claw set but they are glued in. The foil backings are in good condition. Measures 4.5cm x 5cm diameter. Fastens with a sturdy c clasp. It would look great on a formal jacket but equally good with less formal wear. I think these pastels look fab with denim. I would describe this piece as in very good condition. Presented in a satin drawstring bag

  • Classic and elegant Crown Trifari pearl and rhinestone brooch, designed by Alfred Philippe in the late 50s or 60s. It features brushed and shiny goldtone metal leaf fronds, 13 faux pearls and 7 tiny rhinestones.

    Damascening is the art of inlaying different metals into one another—typically, gold or silver into a darkly oxidized steel background—to produce intricate patterns similar to niello. The English term comes from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask silk.

They adopted a method similar to Avon in that they used house parties to sell their  ranges “for the woman who dares to be different."
