Book Review on BarnesAndNoble.com



Jewels Of Passion received a flattering 5-Star review at Barnes And Noble.com by one satisfied customer:

Wonderful resource for jewelry designers and enthusiasts by evado

Reader Rating: 5 Stars

When I purchased this book at my local Barnes And Noble, it was still shrink wrapped so I never saw any of the photos in the book. The pieces that Sherri Duncan and Deby Roberts picked for the front and back cover were enough to convince me that this book was filled with amazing pieces of costume jewelry. And I was not disappointed. There was page after page of incredible examples of costume jewelry along with snapshots of the everyday life of Dr. Sherri. I will continue to pull this book off my shelf for information and inspiration.

'Jewels of Passion' Book Review

The Book Shelf
BOOK REVIEWS BY KAREN REITER, MAY 2009

JEWELS OF PASSION Costume Jewelry Masterpieces
By Sherri R. Duncan & Deby A. Roberts

"Go big or go home!" If you are going to do something give it 110%-do it right, have fun, and first and foremost, do what makes you happy. These are the mottos that guide Sherri Duncan's life. She loves beautiful clothes and spectacular jewelry.
Sherri Duncan is leading an exciting life filled with a job she loves, great friends, and a passionate love affair with show-stopping vintage costume jewelry masterpieces. This vibrant veterinarian wears her fantastic jewelry everyday to work, for travel, dinners and parties as well. Her jewelry doesn't sit in a jewelry box, she wears it to look good and feel good too.
This book is great because it showcases one woman's collection and what a collection it is, indeed! She has some of the most visually stunning jewelry that I have ever seen. The Juliana parures; the phenomenal Kenneth Jay Lane collar; the Schreiner bib necklace and earrings will make your heart sing. The Hagler and Haskell sections have pieces in it that are just so opulent and exquisite.
The photography is just gorgeous and the close up shots of the jewelry of over fifty mid-20th century companies will leave you wanting to collect even more.
Doing what you love changes your brain chemistry, your energy level and your entire outlook on life. Collecting beautiful jewelry is not just a little old hobby for Dr. Duncan and her best buddy, Deby Roberts, it is a passion.
Get happy, wear all your gorgeous jewelry. Live life now!!!
