I hunt old warehouses that have bought out long defunkt costume jewelry houses. One of my stock lines is Banana Bob: a high end costume jewelry line from the 70's. The warehouse I buy from purchased all of the Banana Bob stock when they went out of business. The pieces I obtain are not found anywhere else, and often I purchase the entire lot of a piece I like. There's no more to purchase - so if you like something I suggest you grab it. When they are gone, they are gone!!

Twilight inspired vintage jewelry. It's the biggest vampire thing since "Dark Shadows" back in the 70's. Well, darn, now you all know how old I am....and the girls love to wear Twilight inpired jewelry.
Most specifically, turquoise cabs and large cab settings. It's Bella's signature look, and I couldn't be more pleased. Some of these shops can't even keep up with the demand!
Here are some pictures of what you can create for your favorite "Twilight" fan, or yourself with vintage pieces. I haven't finished the pieces, but you get the drift. The look is elegant and timeless, and makes a bold statement. After all, what self respecting vampire doesn't want to have a great sense of style????
They are to "die" for :))
You can find the pieces in both my Etsy and Artfire shops!

I'm still finding some coveted Banana Bob pieces, but they are very few and far between - they are almost all gone, especially the enameled pieces. I now buy all the remaining stock when I do find a piece, so at least I have what's left to offer to you. It's like finding treasure when I locate any!
