Weiss Rhinestones

What do you know about Weiss?  Before working here, I had never even heard of Weiss.  Here are a few things I have learned since:

Albert Weiss founded Weiss jewelry in the year 1942.  Mr. Weiss was experienced with costume jewelry, as he had spent some time at Coro.

Mr. Weiss designed most of the jewelry that bears his name.  his company operated from 1942 through to 1971, when it finally shut down.  Unfortunately, many of the great costume jewelry companies closed their doors about this time, due to the jewelry styles changing so much.  Hence, Weiss jewelry falls very much into the "most desireable" costume jewelry years.

Weiss jewelry is know for both classic looks and for loads of wonderful, excellent-quality rhinestones.  The jewelry was well-made and has stood the test of time. –Source.

What I do know is that the pieces that Jo’s Antiques has collected, and has for sale at ARTifacts are exquisite.  And right now, she has this bracelet, valued at over $350 a couple of years ago, is now on sale!



Even the clasp on this bracelet is amazing!  Here are the details about this lovely piece:

Great art design, signed Weiss.  Excellent craftsmanship, with a total of 234 clear stones: 216 stones of 1/4 carat each, foil back designs, 12 step cut, long clear baguettes, 6 more rhinestones on the claps, with safety chain.  Bracelet is 8 stones wide (1 1/2”), 7 1/2” long, with clasp.  Believed to be 40’s or 50’s product.  The design has 3 series of 8 rows of the 1/4 carat stone divided by 2 rows of the baguette stones which are 1/4 inches long and 1/8 inches wide each. (6 across each row).  I found this lovely bracelet at an auction in Florida.

Special Sale price at $400 NOW $240

See you downtown!!

Sew Sweet Child has totally changed up her booth, the dresses with all new fabrics and styles.  Love this new collection – especially this new sweet skirt!  I love it!  This is the first one, but she said she has more on the cutting table already – so cute!!


I love this one below with the trees – sew CUTE! (hee hee, couldn’t resist the pun!)


This one has a great pattern on inside and out! OK – they all do – but can you see that sweet little cherry blossom print?  I love it!

Petticoat Junktion Sale

For those of you who watch ARTifacts on Facebook, you already saw that Petticoat Junktion is having a sale in her booth.  But now you get to see some of those items!




OPPS!  Already sold this one!


I have always loved this putty colored distressed table, now on sale for $48.


Charming rocking chair for $38


This is a brand new dresser – not on sale, but already an incredible price (just arrived yesterday!!) for $249.  SHe painted this one a fabulous deep purple, almost a plum – then did some detailing on it in silver.  My photos don’t do it justice – but on her blog, you can see before and after shots.


Someone is looking at this set of 3, 2 side tables and 1 console – as I am typing this.  So, these may or may not be available when I am done typing this!  And at this price, if these 2 ladies don’t snatch them up, someone will soon!  The 2 side tables have glass on the top and are $88 for both.  The coffee table/console is $88 also!  GREAT PRICES!


Can you believe this one?  It is only $8!  Needs a bit of TLC, but totally worth it!  Who knows, maybe I will go home with it today……hmmm, I feel a project coming on!  Come save me from myself!

See you downtown!
