Collecting Costume Jewelry 202 is an awesome presentation on the basics of collecting and dating pieces from the 1930s through the 1980s. Billed as the sequel to Collecting Costume Jewelry 101, the newly released volume's coverage is impressive. Included are more than 650 color photographs, 550 patent illustrations, and a jolting 4,000 patent design numbers. Additionally the substantial reference provides vintage advertisements or other illustrations from 125 makers.
About the Author

She taught computer science for many years, and at that time very few published materials were available to teach young children, so she frequently wrote her own lessons. She used this skill in trying to teach others about collecting costume jewelry.
