    I joined when this forum first started, read a few threads, and then for some reason simply forgot to continue.

    A few weeks ago I remembered Antiquers and so I came back , signed in (hadn't forgotten my password!) and started reading the jewelry forum and found it so interesting.

    I belong to the Ebay Jewelry Board Group, and recognize quite a few names from there, and also from the old Ebay Jewelry Board.

    I enjoy and collect antique and vintage silver and jewelry, and although I do sell, it's mainly to support my habit of collecting. I'm not keen on selling but love buying.

    My tastes are eclectic, and I'm very easily distracted, especially jewelry wise. I never stop enjoying it though and it's a wonderful obsession.

    Glad to be here and looking forward to staying around this time.

    Welcome back, Arlene!

    That's just how I am with my vintage clothing/textile collection. It's a good thing that I have a basement! :rolleyes:

    Welcome back! :) For me, I'm the exact opposite-- I love buying and I love selling, too, because I don't have the confidence to rock antique jewelry. (Although in the future I plan to buy a shirt to wear my Victorian cuff links with).

    Oh, I also buy gold jewelry, but often the price is a bit too high and now everyone weighs and tests.

    Sometimes I'm lucky and will find a sleeper.

    Sleepers are getting harder to find but oh, the thrill when it happens.

    Thanks for the warm welcome back here, folks.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    Welcome back, @Arlene_V ! I recognize your name from the eBay boards. I still occasionally go there but don't stay long. The Jewelry & Gemstones Board group is one of the very few there that is still very active.

    This Antiquers site can be very habit forming... ;)

    Oh oh oh, be careful what you ask for! :happy: I could post pics all day of jewelry!

    I see that there are a few bug jewelry collectors here. Now I don't have a lot of bug jewelry unfortunately but when i find a good piece at a good price ...

    I'm going to try to post a pic so here goes.

    Here is my avatar. Almost cried with joy when I spied this little treasure sitting there wanting to come home with me at a church sale a year ago. Screenshot (60).png

    Arlene, I used to own one (bug pin) that you would have hated! Truly! It was a life-sized Daddy-Long-Legs, with silver appendages, and an enormous (think playing marble) body made of a raucous turquoise!
