Grandmas Vintage Jewelry

cloissone red and pink pierced earrings

by Tammy S. Pinkerton

This is my first blog post for Grandma’s Jewelry. This is a collection of vintage and estate sale jewelry. I like silver and gold. Who doesn’t?

I thought I would begin this first blog post with a poem…

Once upon a time, there was a lady who was old
she shopped and shopped until she found gold

but what can you do with just gold, even when you are old
so she transformed it into jewelry that could be sold

she added some precious gems, and branched into silver
and expanded to include glitter, and gemstones
it was easier than knitting a sweater

The retail stores made no sense, nobody shopped there
she took a long nap

and she had a dream it was like a brief movie flick
all she had to do was list the jewelry for sale on the computer
and all the customers had to do was look at a picture, and click.

Amethyst, diamonds, tigers eye, silver and gold
all could be bought and sold with a simple click in a lickety split.

And that’s my story and I am sticking to it
