About the Author
Sandra Sturdivant worked for 18 years in the offshore oil industry in Texas before retiring with her husband to Oklahoma. She has collected jewelry throughout her adult life and won't be content until every piece is accurately identified. Her passion is borne out in this monumental work.

I don't see Sturdivant's prices reflected in real-life on eBay, but of course she provided a disclaimer that they are to serve only as a guide. What helps me is to see a piece that SHE prices at, say, $25: I now know not to list such an item at a mere 99¢ and "give" it away. The "suggested" prices simply steer me toward what a reasonable opening bid might be.
The only things that seem to be missing entirely are the various "seller-award" pieces. Otherwise, this is a large, well-made hardcover book, obviously well-researched and an impressive testament to the author's love of the subject. If you're looking for a great resource to identify Avon jewelry, this book does exactly as its title suggests.
Having more information about unsigned pieces would be great. The unsigned piece I found did not mention that it was unsigned in the book.
It starts with information about the designers jewelry of Avon. Than a capture about sets.
And the next chapters are about Necklaces, Bracelets, Pins, Rings and Earrings.
Well-organized classification and the photos are good and detailed.
