It's a hazard of this profession---- falling in love.
Sometimes it can be hard to part with some of the treasures that I find. But hoarding is a real concern.
Look how this amazing Victorian book chain necklace fastens around the front...
An old agate stone, almost with a shadow. It reminds me of an overexposed photograph. Hanging from it now is a wonderful gemstone chunk, rhinestone ring and the most amazing antique puffy boot fob or charm.
