In the 1970’s, my mom who is a seamstress was the recipient of a box full of rhinestone pieces, already very old. 40 years or so later, we have opened the box to find that most have held up quite well. The style of settings, start from the Art Deco period of the 1920's. Some have several duplicates, but there are many one of a kind pieces of all shapes, configurations, and sizes. I am adding jump rings, chains, clasps, and pins to make them wearable, but still have many individual pieces waiting to be utilized and shown off.
