MURANO JEWELRY COLLECTION Millefiori glass elements and beads in jewelry is as exciting today as it has ever been. Peruse the sophisticated and brilliantly colorful collection by American designer Shelley Cooper
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Do you sell or collect vintage jewelry? There is only a single American designer/mfg. whose current work is comparable to the scope and quality of vintage designer costume jewels. She is Shelley Cooper and her factory is located in Los Angeles, USA.
The scarcity of costume jewelry in good condition has caused prices to soar. Yet, jewelry, as a collectible category, has continued to grow. Dealers and collectors alike, find it increasingly difficult to buy nice examples for collections or resale. Many prominent dealers, museums and even wardrobe depts (including Paramount Pictures) have come to rely on Shelley Cooper's "Sweet Romance" line to provide historically compelling, highly fashionable jewelry.
The collections span a 500 year retrospective of jewlery, beginning with the Renaissance up to mid-20th century Americana. This is not a reproduction line, but accurate detail and traditional manufacturing techniques enable Ms. Cooper's designs to rival antique and vintage pieces from all eras of history.
The designer's new collection--"Candy Glass" is a joyously colorful range jewels set with handmade murano ‘candy’ glass and dazzling multi hued stones. The silhouettes are big, retro 1950s and ‘60s style masterworks. Modestly priced, the jewelry is affordable for collectors and offers a depth of styles and choices for a dealer to retail.
