Client Praise

  • I am absolutely thrilled with my purchases and the only disappointment is that I did not buy more. We have such a shared love of jewelry and your depth of knowledge feeds my interest. I can hardly wait to wear my pieces and I will with pride! Thank you very much. I am an even bigger fan than I was before.

  • I am sitting here writing to you, wearing my beautiful amethyst earrings!!!  I just adore them.  Thank you so very much for having them in the first place for me to admire on your site and then decide to purchase.  They will be worn with so much, and I know I will feel very special every time I wear them.

    Elyse, New York
  • Just wanted you to know I got my electronic copy of the new ASJRA magazine with your fabulous article on Wachenheimer/Diamonbar.  I’ve been a collector of this jewelry for years, and I do have all the patents, many catalogues, and info on the company myself (including about Fred Friendly), but I think it is absolutely fantastic that you wrote a scholarly article on this company that was a long time coming.  You wrote a wonderful, historical study of this fantastic company and I truly admire your research skills. I’m in awe. I loved the story and your writing is exceptional. I am so happy there is someone out there doing real, hard, concrete research; something that is very important to me and dear to my heart.

Lecture Praise

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful presentation you gave to our chapter. It was entertaining and very informative. I loved the Downton Abbey references and the history of fashion and jewelry. My personal favourite part of the presentation was using the Art Deco pieces to accessorize today’s fashions, and how they work well whether you are dressed up or down.

  • Barbara did an excellent job presenting on the topic of Art Deco jewelry at our Costume Jewelry Collectors Int’l convention in 2013. She was knowledgeable, articulate, and passionate about her work as a public speaker as well being enthusiastic about the topic she covered. We would certainly welcome her back to future conferences to further share her expertise with our attendees.

    Pam, Texas
  • Barbara, an expert jewelry historian, presented an engaging and informative lecture. Her understanding of the jewelry industry and her passion for jewelry studies are evidence by her thorough lectures. She is a tremendous asset to the community.

    Melinda, California
  • As for what I found interesting in your webinar — I have to say that it was all riveting. I particularly liked the historical aspect and how it influenced the style of jewellery.  The visuals were stunning, and, of course, very helpful.
