"Both my mom and my aunt have incredible costume jewelry collections. When I was little, they took me to a lot of antiques shows and auctions, and I’m so glad they did; it’s definitely made me a better collector. I love the thrill of the hunt too. It takes patience, but if you’re willing to dig through the selections at places like the Portobello Market, you can discover great stuff. I was just there recently and found a few amazing pieces. That’s my idea of a perfect Saturday."
