VRBA JEWELRY
 

  Larry Vrba is a wonderful jewelry maker and a good friend. He has been making jewelry for almost 50 years, and was the head designer at Miriam Haskell Jewelry in the 1970's. Larry makes jewelry for the Broadway Stage and the Opera as well as for boutiques, balls and vintage jewelry shops. His pieces are almost always quite large, usually four inches or more, and he has a huge collection of vintage beads and rhinestones from which to fashion them.

 The flower brooch to the left is one of my favorites as it has such a rich combination of stones and colors. This particular piece is really too large to wear, but it is a wonderful jeweled sculpture. He hand makes each and every piece, so it is not always easy to get his jewelry. It has never been mass produced. His poured glass petal bouquets, vase and basket brooches and Christmas tree brooches are favorites. And look at the variety seen below!

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
