I only recently found out about Kirks Folly line of jewelry
Opened in 1979, it was literally the last jewelry manufacturer based in Providence Rhode Island and it closed Nov 1, 2014.
It looks like it was high end at one point but I think it was sold on TV in america before the ladies retired. Great thread on its closing, many sad fans and bits of info: http://community.qvc.com/t5/Jewelry/Kirks-Folly-closing-their-doors-It-s-over/td-p/1298245
Looking through some of the charm pieces, I have some of the exact charms I bought off Rhode Island sellers. Finally learned who one of the big name brand manufacturer the re-sellers allude to!
Its good stuff. The vintage pieces are amazing of course.
This is the kind of stuff I want to make. Or at least able to make. The pieces are so beautiful!!!
