One lady who had come down from New Jersey was wearing this great mourning brooch. She even took it off so I could more easily take pictures of it. I'm always amazed at how generous total strangers are. I started talking about antique jewelry and the next thing I knew, we're having our own little jewelry "show and tell" party during a re-enactment! Isn't life grand?
This was an impromptu blog with my impromptu jewelry findings. If you have antique and vintage jewelry that you wear, show me! Send me some pictures of how you wear your antique jewelry on Jewelry Nerd’s facebook page and I might feature it in an upcoming blog!
*A special thank you to the wonderful ladies who allowed me to photograph them and their jewelry even though I don't even know your names. I had a great time with you!
