I like Jewelry vintage shopping on eBay. You literally can find anything. I was searching for an arts & crafts jewelry item to image one of my soon to be article about how the Pre Raphaelites triggered the Arts & Crafts movement… Yes, I promise the title will be less long and less pompous, the article as well…

So back to eBay Shopping! eBay is fun; one has to be careful though especially with jewelry. A good way of avoiding silly accidents is to go through specialized websites with enlightening articles, such as Collectors Weekly who also shows a really good list of top eBay auctions. Chanel, YSL, Lanvin… I often get tempted to buy entire lots too. You know, those that take weeks to sort out and 95% of it turns out to be.. Hmm!!!

Oh, by the way, here it is… The Batty Brooch! (it does kind of look like a bat, don’t you think?)  It’s Chrysoprase and Silver. I already imagined plenty of ways of wearing it even though I don’t know if I’ll buy it yet…

The post!

After having thought hours (ok maybe it was days…) about how to start OnlyJewels, what the perfect subject for a first post could be, and how not to make a complete fool out of myself within a few words: I have decided to make an easy start.

 

 

 

 

So here it is! A humble post about something I like made by someone I am looking forward to seeing more of… I am talking about Delfina Delettrez and her gold, diamond and sapphire Metamorphoses Rings. Those sweet skull-headed creatures could come right out of a monstrous fairy tale.  I love them! What can one say; it runs in the family…

 

Where Am I?
