Synopsis: Movie stars first wore them, then retail pieces were made for sale to the public, and now collectors avidly search for the special jewelry of Joseff. Jewelry of the Stars takes you on a journey through and beyond the career of Joseff of Hollywood, whose extraordinary design talents contributed to over ninety-percent of the jewelry supplied for the movies during Hollywood's golden years of the 1930s, '40s and beyond. The jewelry includes the unique Joseff retail line that was sold through jewelry departments of fine stores and is widely coveted by jewelry collectors worldwide today. Jewelry of the Stars willl be treasured by movie buffs and jewelry lovers alike. It is a nostalgic glimpse of the movies that adds another dimension to the fascinating progression of jewelry design.

About the Author: A native of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Joanne Dubbs Ball has lived in the Farmington Valley area of Connecticut for most of her adult life. Spending her childhood and teenage years just a few blocks from four of Lancaster's theatres during those "golden years," she acquired a fascination with films and their stars that continues today. Combining this interest in movies with her avocation as a collector of costume jewelry from the same era was, according to the author, a "match made in heaven;" making Jewelry of the Stars is a natural follow-up to her previous book, Costume Jewelers: The Golden Age of Design (Schiffer, 1990.) A free-lance writer and member of the Society of Jewelry Historians, Mrs. Ball continues to research material in related areas of jewelry and design.
