Mama’s Vintage Pearls is owned & managed by former antique jewellery dealer Susan Yansaneh.
She has a huge collection of antique costume jewellery, beads and semiprecious stones which go into the creation of vintage pieces with a twist!
Susan’s passion for jewellery gives her an encyclopaedic knowledge of vintage and antique styles, designs and processes.
Her main interest is costume jewellery from the Edwardian period right through to the 1980s, with the late 1940s and early 1950s being her particular favourites.
Susan loves to restore vintage necklaces, brooches, bracelets and earrings. She can repair brooches by replacing lost or damaged stones, fix or replace broken clasps, re-string beads or individually knot necklaces.
She also makes bespoke pieces using jewellery (including broken and damaged pieces) that once belonged to a lost loved one. Giving a lovely piece of jewellery to remember them by and pass down through the generations.
