Norma Cortez has been collecting and selling vintage jewlery for 20 years. She has also been making her own jewelry for the past 5, principally featuring turquoise.
I love the idea of finding/uncovering a piece of sterling silver jewelry at an estate sale or antique shop and ushering it into a new life with a new owner. It’s kind of like match making for jewelry. I’ve been at the vintage side for about 8 years and recently started to silversmith my own pieces.
