Welcome to my ETSY store, ChefsGirlfriend, offering lovely, well-made costume jewelry at an affordable price.

My profession is nursing; my passion is costume jewelry collecting.

Jewelry has been a life-long passion for me. The love affair started when I was about five-years old. My dad brought home “treasures" that he found at local vintage & thrift shops. My dad, 90, died this year. He is missed, deeply.

I began beading in grade school leading to an overall interest in gemstones & jewelry design.

In recent years, I enjoy searching thrift stores, vintage/antique stores, consignment shops, & estate sales for those costume jewelry treasures.

Why Etsy? Etsy is the perfect venue for sharing my findings.

Enjoy and best wishes,
Ellen (chefsgirlfriend)
