My Juliana

Some of the creations of DeLizza & Elster are provided here for identification purposes or just sheer enjoyment. If you love glitz, you will love these pieces. While DeLizza & Elster only operated the Juliana company for about two years when all of their items were paper-tagged, the name Juliana has become so locked into the jewelry lover's psyche, that I am keeping the designation here. In 2000 I posted some of these pictures to the Jewel Collect group and several people had paper-tagged pieces "Tara" and "Gloria". Others then found pieces with the "Juliana" hangtag. In 2002, I noticed an eBay auction with Frank DeLizza's name and the name "Juliana" and got in touch with Kassi Mercy, who was selling some of Frank DeLizza's new creations. The rest was history. (The items shown here are not for sale.)
