So... I am Ellen Eaton and vintage jewelry is a passion of mine! So addicting is the endless treasure hunt for wonderful vintage pieces with the exciting variety of materials that were used to create them. So many delightful, fun, even zany pieces, as well as the breathtakingly beautiful ones. One can never lose interest as a collector in such a diverse field. So I search for the most collectible pieces but also uncommon, unique and unusual pieces to offer my customers here. With knowledge gleaned from 0ver 25 years... Yikes...that's a long long time, lol!, I absolutely know a lot lot lot about vintage costume jewelry! But not so that I am not constantly learning too! Hours and hours of research go into this as new information on vintage jewelry pieces, designers, collections is added regularly. Gotta keep up, lol! I have given talks, seminars, worked for other companies being a buyer / expert on old costume jewelry and have sold at many major antique shows across the eastern United States.
I also showcase my own designs created from vintage pieces. They carry my Ellen originals tags and cartouches . I also showcase other designers that have wonderful talent and like passion. If you are a designer who uses vintage components in your jewelry please email or text me and I will add your jewelry to this site too!
