"For years collectors wondered about the mysterious creator of the Juliana line - some of the most colorful and inventive costume jewelry to be found.

Whether he is telling an amusing anecdote about the famous names in this glamorous world, giving us an insiderís view of designer decision-making, discussing the headaches of running a business, or describing the colorful characters in his extended Italian-American family, in the end it is Frankís warm and generous spirit that leaves an inspiring and lasting impression."

Click on picture to view larger picture. A bevy of springtime beauties I call "D&ELicious". Only one is not a D&E. It is a Coro and is the pale yellow flower with a goldtone center that is somewhat overlaying the red flower in the middle row about three pins in from the right hand side. The Coro pin is not marked but I have the pin and earrings of an identical set and only the earrings are signed "Coro".
  
Click on picture to view larger picture. This is a wonderful example of NON-D&E/Juliana jewelry. It has a lot of the same attributes - large watermelon rhinestones, open-back settings, unusual stone combination, and glitz and sparkle. I showed this to Frank DeLizza when we first met and he confirmed that was NOT made by D&E, although he said it looked very similar to their jewelry. He said they did not use this style of foldover clasp endings (see last full-size image).
