Mom (April 19, 2009)|
In loving Memory of Mom
August 24, 1927 - April 7, 2009
Don't think of her as gone away, her journey's just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one. Just think of her as resting from the sorrow and the tears in a place of warm and comfort, where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched, for nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much.

DeLizza & Elster Jewelry (aka Juliana) |
In this album you will find a few examples of verified DeLizza & Elster designs, as well as those that are "Juliana" jewelry (tagged Juliana). One important factor we have learned is that Frank DeLizza prefers that we term his glitz jewelry as "DeLizza & Elster" unless it was from his tagged Juliana company that was in operation from from 1967-1968.
Some of these items are for sale at my web site - click here to view our D&E gallery:

Forbidden Fruit Lucite Jewelry-Austria (February 12, 2005)|
Desirable Forbidden Fruit lucite jewelry with embedded rhinestones.
Made in Austria in the late 1940's - early 1950's
Characteristics of "Forbidden Fruit" jewelry is that
they are either made of an opaque lucite or a translucent lucite of some color (but can also be clear) with embedded rhinestones. An example of coloring is the lemon which is a translucent yellow lucite
with embedded yellow rhinestones.
Forbidden Fruit typically has some sort of metal incorporated into the piece like the enamel painted leaves on the fruits, or the body of the butterfly, the bee on the bee hive, the stem of the mushroom, the husk on the corn, the radish tops, the eggplant leaf, etc. One piece that doesn't have metal is the watermelon.
They were Austrian made and were most likely produced in the late
1940's early 1950's. In Harrice Miller's Official Price Guide to
Costume Jewelry (Third Edition) page 76-77 it states they were made in the 1930's but most feel they were made later.
My understanding is that the original cards that the pieces were sold on were labeled Forbidden Fruit so this name has been generally used for all the Austrian lucite embedded rhinestone pieces - not just the
Several of my pieces were featured in Ann Pitman's Volume 3 Inside the Jewelry Box on pages 7-12.

HISTORY of Florenza
Pansy Jewlery (June 28, 2005)|
The pansy gets its name from the French word pensée meaning "thought". It was so named because the flower resembles a human face and in August it nods forward as if deep in thought.
Because of this lovely flower's special meaning, our web site logo was created using a Victorian calling card with pansies.
