We appreciate Hamlet at Chagrin Falls for sponsoring this program.
After retiring as a school district superintendent, Dr. Mari Halkovich began a second career which combines her interest in history with her love of antique and vintage jewelry. She started her antiques business, Vintage Vanities, and began participating in antique shows, often traveling to other states to buy, sell, and appraise jewelry.
Mari is constantly updating and expanding her knowledge of vintage jewelry. She attends conferences and classes nationally. She is a member of the Gemological Institute of America, American Society of Jewelry Historians, and Costume Jewelry Collectors International.
Mari enjoys enthusiastically sharing her knowledge in this area by presenting programs and teaching classes at the University of Akron.
She is a resident of Granger Township in Medina County, Ohio.
