I mostly have the light blue, called "Wedgwood" blue...of course!
The green comes in second. Then I have some royal blue, and then black. I have one pink, one lilac and one brown. All with white classical figures. I do have one that's white with a blue figure.
It's all called Jasperware, a type of ceramic developed by Josiah Wedgwood in 1795.
Honestly, none of my pieces are valuable or worth much, but I love them anyway. I think it's the cameo-like raised figures that I'm attracted to.
The first time I saw Jasperware was 1995, in the National Archives Museum in Washington DC. Large fabulous urns and vases hand decorated with classical figures.
I fell in love!

@stracci2000, I have only seen black once, they were perfume bottles, I think I sent you pictures of them. Also lilac very few times. Whether they are valuable or not, they bring you joy and that’s what matters.

I just counted, and I have 40 pieces.
Yes,they do bring me joy!
I love finding them at yard and thrift stores.
It's the thrill of the hunt.....same thing with jewelry, you know!

Oh I know for sure and for this reason I only go to the flea markets once a summer because there is so much jewelry. As my husband says, if he gives me $50 I will spend $75 but once a summer is a treat @stracci2000

Only one time a summer?
I would be worried about all the great stuff I was missing! What if there was a big OEC ring in the bottom of an old shoe box, and you weren't there to find it???? Haaahaaa!! (smilies aren't working.....)

Mine aren’t working either so don’t feel bad. I know I’m probably missing out but what I don’t know will save me money in the long run.

I already found my unicorn OEC so now it’s your turn!

Years ago, we used to go to the big local flea market every Saturday during the summer.
I would hit the ATM and get out $60 or $80. And I would spend all of it. If I had a few dollars left, I would spend it on produce or baked goods just before leaving.
And this was long before I had my vintage booth, I was just a spending fool. I couldn't pass up jewelry, Asian items and curios of all kinds. So I had to stop.
But then again, I still do that same thing only with yard sales!!!!

And honey, I have my OEC, thanks to you!!!

@stracci2000, I’ve had better luck with pawn shops but this past summer we went to a new outdoor flea market and it was amazing. That’s where I got my James Avery pendant and silver watch chain that doubles as a bracelet. It is so hard to stay away but then it’s even more fun when I do get to go. DH is a hunter type, just today he wanted to go poke around one of the indoor antique centers. Instead we took the kids out and bought Christmas jammies at Target and food for dinner, all necessary things.

I love this so much!!!!!
The inscription really makes it special, don't you think?

Yes!!! you dont see many with such preservation it was just a few hundred dollars I was thrilled to find it.

I love this. Is that yellow gold within the white gold? I really want to two-tone antique band but they are few and far between.

I think so. The photos show it way more than in real life..its a super thin tiny band.. I wish there were more contrast but it's very pretty.

Love your new band @blingmeupscotty!

ty ty :)

I'm making lasagna today. I made pumpkin pie yesterday.
I just didn't wanna buy turkey and all the fixins for just two of us!
I hope your new bling ring enjoys her first holiday! If the extended family sees her, will tongues wag??
