I'm hooked on vintage rhinestone jewelry! It has consumed my thoughts and my pocket book! It has quickly replaced my past obsession with real diamonds, Longaberger baskets, scrapbook supplies, beanie babies, tea cups, silverware and crystal chandeliers! I may need professional help or perhaps another obsession.
What is the attraction to these man made gems crafted from highly refined glass? Is it the sparkle of each piece or the thrill of the find? Is it the fantasy that they're real or the story they tell? When does a collection become an obsession? As my practical husband asks, "When will enough be enough?" (My husband can live on $20 per month for incidentals!)
To justify my collection/obsession I've added them to my website.For now, I'm enjoying their sparkle, the thrill of the find, the fantasy that they're real and the story they tell! Their beauty is "timeless!" (You will be the first to know when this obsession is replaced by another!)
