Antiques & Furniture
I lived in Europe for 10 years and appreciate the history of antiques and antique furniture styles. I've worked at 4 Minneapolis metro area antique stores and teach antique appraising.
Fine & Costume Jewelry
I'm a G.I.A Gemological Institute of America Applied Jewelry Professional graduate. I can identify & test most gems like diamonds, emeralds & rubies and precious metals such as gold & sterling silver in your home. And I've appraised thousands of pieces of costume jewelry.
