Welcome to the very first post of the Found in the Jewelry Box blog. My name is Danielle Olivia Tefft. I am a jewelry writer. I am also the proud owner of Treasure Box Antiques, an online shop full of antique and vintage jewelry, both costume and fine. I am eager to share with you the knowledge I have accrued over a lifetime. Come join me for a fabulous journey of learning and discussion in this blog.
The love of jewelry has been in my blood for as long as I can remember. When I was a child, my grandmother let me play with everything in her jewelry box. It was a privilege I cherish to this day. I spent hours rearranging her baubles: earrings, bracelets, brooches and necklaces. I don't remember really parading around wearing much of the faux jewels in that wonderful, big white leather box. But I do remember organizing and displaying the pieces in countless, carefully choreographed arrangements within that grand box. It was precious time to me.
This jewelry blog is written in my grandmother's honor. She always told me I was her shining star. I hope you enjoy learning about the jewelry that might reside in your grandmother's or mother's jewelry box. I have lots of information to share with you and can't wait to do so. I have plenty of photos of jewelry to share also. They have been taken through the years for my online shop, Treasure Box Antiques, and other venues I have participated in. I invite you to subscribe to and thoroughly enjoy this blog. Please comment on any articles you discover here that enchant, confuse, excite or otherwise engage you!
