These first 8 are early Hollycraft. My father, Joseph Chorbajian, began the company in 1936. His 2 cousins, Jack Hazard and Arshag "Archie" Chorbajian, joined him in 1939.
Some of the styling changed in this series with minor changes.

Robin Deutsch sent me several of these copyright images as well as photos of Hollycraft that she had come across in her research and owns in her personal collection.  She also donated the earrings in the next picture which is to eventually become part of the Hollycraft Collection that will  be given to a museum sometime in the future.

I am searching for this bracelet. I have one that is similar but not photographed as yet. Robin has a different style, which was featured in her Hollycraft ImageEvent albmn early in this COW. Edit

Here are some different necklaces.  Most of my collection comes from the period when Hollycraft put logos on their jewelry.  The majority of logos are found in the 1950's.  There were several early pieces (late 1940's) that had patents, which was among the first group featured in this album, but that became expensive, so they went to logos.

The following 8 pictures (sorry for the dark color) represent pieces of Hollycraft that belonged to my father's brother, Abraham "Abe" Chorbajian, who was also a manager at Hollycraft.  He formerly worked for Coro Jewelers before joining the family business.  These all are now part of the Hollycraft Collection as a result of a very generous donation by Judy and Richard Chorbajian who possessed them after the death of Abe Chorbajian.
