Christie Romero - One Year Later
I just saw this on the Center for Jewelry Studies page - I cannot believe its been a year already. The website has established a very nice page for visitors to enter comments and thoughts about Christy. There is also a Memorial Scholarship Fund to attend a 4-day Jewelery Camp.
How cool is that?
Christie Romero is best known as a jewelry historian, consultant, gemologist and instructor of antique and period jewelry. She has been teaching classes in Southern California since 1988. Christie has authored three publications of Warman's Jewelry, published by Krause Publications and the Collector's Timeline.

I was lucky enough to meet Christy at the Maestros Exhibit in San Antonio. It was wonderful - she knew everybody - or everybody knew her! I also miss her on Antiques Roadshow.
Memorial donations may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network; for more information go to pancan.org.
