Born before WWI, my mother Anelia (Lithuanian for Angela), started traveling in the 1930's - for work and adventure. She loved exploring new areas, and learning about their cultures and their art. During her travels at at home, she collected jewelry and other treasures for more than fifty years. She acquired many pieces from Europe, especially during her many visits to Lithuania. She traded pieces with her friends, and received some lovely gifts from friends and family, especially from my aunt who worked for Krementz. Following in my mother's footsteps, I developed a love of travel, and together we traveled through the Americas, Europe and the South Pacific. She also taught me an appreciation for quality costume jewelry and other fun collectibles - particularly those from the 1940s, 50s and 60s. The pieces available in our shop were acquired with love and care. I hope you enjoy looking through the collection and perhaps choose a piece to call your own.
