Old Market Jewelry Works offers
a colorfully classy and original
array of ethnic jewelry from all
over the world. Gold, copper and
silver pieces adorn black velvet
cloth in front of mirrors and lights
in the high-ceilinged store,
creating a museum-like atmos
phere without the high prices.
Intricately patterned bracelets, neck
collars, earrings and belts run
from 99 cents to hundreds of dol
lars, and most everything in the
store is handmade.
Anderson said a woman from
California said his prices were
lower than California flea market
He guarantees that if anything
sold in his store breaks, he
will replace it or repair it
himself. He said he also repairs
jewelry bought elsewhere.
Anderson said he gets some of
his best jewelry from India and
Thailand. He said India is well
known for having the finest ethnic
jewelry, and Thailand is known for
its intricately designed silver
jewelry. Anderson carries, for
example, some mother-of-pearl
earrings from Thailand that have
tiny silver balls individually sol
dered on by hand to form delicate
Anderson said his most popular
and best-selling item is a thin ste

He said black amethyst, garnet

change to keep people from being
bored, it can work. You can't say
fashion is one thing because it's
not. There are no absolutes in the
world of fashion. Everything's in
fashion somewhere at some time."
Anderson said Indian costume
jewelry and Eastern European eth
nic jewelry are the most standard
looks. He said he sells all kinds of
jewelry to people of many different
Anderson recently made availa

he described as being the "wave of
new age consciousness."
The crystals are "psychic"
things that reportedly have
certain energy and magnetic
properties. They are used as sym
bols of prosperity. Anderson said
he is mainly interested in selling
jewelry, but may add some clothing.
Besides selling jewelry, Ander
son's store has provided accesso

He also dresses models in black
and his jewelry for Old Market tea
room shows in which the models
visit various restaurants for even

Western look strides in
SPRING from Page 8
Denim and denim look-alike
fabrics, such as chambray, are very
popular this spring, according to
many store managers. Jackets, jeans,
dresses and mini skirts will come in a
variety of colors, including ice-denim,
a fabric that is treated with an acid
dye that gives it a worn look.
Skirts and dresses made of plaid,
and knit material are also very
popular, she said.
Many of the denim fashions this
spring are embellished with studs,
sequins, and beads.
But Farrar said that these designs
are not as popular in Nebraska as
they are in larger cities. Many people
do not want to look like the
"rhinestone cowboy," in the Midwest,
The womens clothing fad is -shifting
from the safari look to a
romantic look, said Darcee Fricke,
manager of The Limited in the
Atrium. Blouses are laced with eyelet
embroidery around the collars. Skirts
are long and ruffled.
The "Santa Fe" look is very
popular for women this spring, said .
Morgan. The designs are basically
western, yet feminine. Petticoats, and
lacey blouses are a very popular
addition to calf-length pleated skirts,
she said. Accessories such as western
belts and pins also are used to add
flair to the outfit.
For men, pastel colors such as
grayish green, pink and yellow are
popular this spring, according to Greg
Mallam, manager of mens clothing at
the Post and Nickel. Earth tones such
as charcoal, khaki, creams and blues
also are popular.
Dress shirts with stripes in every
width and variation imaginable are
popular. Shirt patterns range from
the most conservative fine-line
bankers stripes to bold, widely
spaced track stripes.
Men's slacks are pleated, casual
and loose fitting, Hoffman said. The
pants fit fuller at the thigh, and taper
around the ankles.
Some spring slacks are being made
with "tropical wool," which is finely
woven material that is cool for the
summer, Mallam said. It can be worn
into the fall months. The material
requires little care and doesn't need
to be ironed.
A new look for spring is the
"wrinkled look," Mallam said.
Material such as cotton and silk is
made into a "crush fabric." The
material maintains its crushed look
after washing, he said. And its easy to
care for because "after it's washed,
you shake it and hang it to dry."
Teak and batik prints also are on
the market this season, according to
Mike Birch, men's sportswear buyer
for Ben Simons. Teak prints are of
geometric, "Indian-style," Birch said,
and batik prints are designs made
Jeans for both men and women
have been designed for a tailored fit,
Fricke said. And jean jackets are a
hot-selling item this spring.
For students living on a limited
budget, the Salvation Army is
beginning to sell spring and summer
clothing this week, said foreman Pete
Risk. Blouses, swim suits, jogging
outfits, shorts and slacks are but only
a few items available at the Salvation
"We have slacks out of this world,"
Risk said in reference to the quantity
of slacks at the store. And a large
supply of sandals and shoes are now
