This week I thought I would share some of my early 1900s pieces with you. I am not 100% sure of the age of some of these but based on the little knowledge I have most would be from around 1900-1930s.
here. I hope Aunt Judy will forgive me for borrowing it. I did try to take photos of my own brooch backs but was unable to get a clear picture.
Most of the brooches I am sharing today have this older style clasp.
I hope this gives you a little idea of how pretty some pieces are on their backs.
Hope you enjoyed a peek back into time this week. It amazes me that they were able to make such exquisitely beautiful items that have lasted for so long. Remember this is all costume jewellery, not fine jewellery. It is a surprise that so much of it has survived intact. A measure of how well things were made back then?
wishing you sunshine in your shadows
Sunshine in my shadows
Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives. Hopefully you will find more sunshine than shadows to read about here and on the days when shadows fall, know that the sunshine is peeking just around the corner!
