 I love my job!  I get to visit hundreds of places searching for original vintage costume jewellery, handbags and accessories.  From trade antique fairs to boot fairs, from private collections to charity shops I go to them all and look for items of beauty that need to be worn and loved again.  Every jewel I discover is in excellent condition and is a genuine piece from the past.  It is good fun to save items until they sit together in some special way and can be used for a window display or to place a little selling exhibition in one of my selling units or on my webshop.  Sometimes it is an era  that is the inspiration - Victorian, Edwardian, 1920s, Art Deco, the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and so on .Occasionally  I acquire an unusual collection such as ceramic jewellery shown at the 1951 British Industries Exhibition in London.  On show in my unit in Antiques on High , Oxford at the moment is a collection of jewellery, mostly 1940s to 1960s which has made from wood.  Often it could be the kind of item, beads for example, or some wonderful dress clips or early plastic jewellery like bakelite bangles and lucite brooches.  The latest window display has been inspired by the colours from some exclusive 1950s and 1960s vintage handbags where tones of turquoise and coral orange are predominant.  Taking these delicious colours, which are so in fashion again, I have  grouped these vintage purses with some lovely old  buttons, beads and bangles with the same colours and tones.  If you are looking for special items of vintage or retro costume jewellery for your collection or to wear to a special occassion I can always try to find pieces for you.   If you need Bridal jewellery or special occassion sparkly jewels for a party or ball do look at the website or call into the antique centre.  I also stock  a wide range of antique and retro cufflinks and tie pins for  gentlemen.
