About the Author
Carole Tanenbaum is an enthusiastic collector who--over the course of thirty years--turned her passion for vintage costume jewelry into a worldwide business. Her first book Fabulous Fakes enlightened collectors and fashionistas alike. Carole lives in Toronto with her husband and family. Eve Townsend holds an MA in Fashion from Ryerson University, where her research focused on the history of costume jewelry and its relation to the democratization of fashion. She continues to research, write, and lecture about jewelry and fashions from the Victorian era to today. She resides in Toronto.

In "Schreiner: Masters of Twentieth-Century Costume Jewelry," authors Carole Tanenbaum and Eve Townsend explore the inner workings of the beloved company from its humble beginnings in the '30s until the very end in 1975.-- "Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine"
