If you love vintage treasure, you know how I felt the moment I touched the boxes. They waited so many decades to reveal their exquisite jadeite floral glass contents....Many years ago, I had a connection with an importer in New York who had been a dealer of glass jewels from the 1920s to the '40s. He imported from glass workshops in the Glablonz region of Czechoslovakia that created stones for the jewelry industry until WWII. I bought crates of these vintage elements and I design jewelry that is in context with their era, style and motif.
