Lovely.

I recorded the show (since it was on at 1:00 am, I think) and am watching it now.

faeriemoon, I know that my collection is small, but I've enjoyed evey piece! Its fun and fanciful; so different from the majority of my 'stuff.' (JR, RLM, BB)

Happy to see that you're enjoying the show!

Kindness first..

Thanks for posting this Ty77. I've been enjoying the Kirk's Folly shows since '93. Since today is an easy pay day I ordered the First Kiss pendant, only this one is a soft pink blush color and is on a link chain. I really like this piece because it reminds me of a cameo or an intaglio, and it looks like something out of Greek or Roman mythology. Your picture made me decide to get it.

Beautiful collection. I am upset because I bought a beautiful crystal bracelet that got stretched out of shape and cannot be replaced because they do not have it anymore. I cannot wear it now. I only got to wear it twice. Upsets me as it was kinda expensive. But Kirks did fix a couple picture frames for me where the stands broke.

I have a ton of KF pieces and I sent pictures to Jennifier at KF website. I sent pictures of my daughter with her KF pieces. You should send your pics to Jen at her website.

I love KF but I have been having bad luck lately.

Lovely, lovely collection. Smile

I don't purchase a ton of Kirks Folly (in fact, I only own one piece), but the shows are an absolute delight. If I can, I try to watch whenever they're on. I wish they were on a little more in the afternoons though. These early morning shows are rough.

Do they ever show Kirks Folly TSVs? I think it'd be a nice change of pace in the QVC lineup.

Boggy a TSV from them would be awesome. I wish they had the old KF sets back. But seems like that will never happen again.

^^^I've watched QVC sporadically for years, but only recently started watching religiously enough to know individual hosts and vendors. It seems Kirks Folly is a pretty popular line and would be beneficial to the Q as a TSV.

Oh well. Nice to dream. ^_^

All my pieces and I have plenty of them are beautiful, well made and long lasting. I brought my Seaview turquoise stretch watch in for battery because I've had it quite a while. The jeweler brought two of the four bands and have to have the whole thing remade for free. He could not get over the beautiful piece. I have the matching turquoise matching necklace with the seaview moon drop, beautiful. Can't get these pieces anymore.

Jennifer and KF get bad time slots, and they took away the beautiful whimsical sets, and it's ordinary now. Knowing the pieces, I still buy, but the sets would get you going and live in fairy land. Too bad.

The first KF show I ever saw was the Camelot show in 1993, and at that time they had a TSV which was a Camelot charm bracelet. I didn't get it at the time but I did buy a hair barette which I have and wear to this day and is just as beautiful as it was back then when I first got it. Angels by the Sea was another very special show, but as a previous poster said, the whimsical fairyland sets are unfortunately a thing of the past.

Have tons dating back to her N.Y. days way before Q. Love the stuff and the old sets-they are really missing out not doing these sets as they encourage sales. You can always send your broken watches, items to the factory in Rode Isand and call as the charge is minimal but changes-you can throw a heap in and it's one price. Just send certified and insured. Blessings to all the Kirks people out there in fairyland!

During the October 2010 show, KF offered an 'Over the Rainbow Bridge' jewelry set. Having just lost a beloved pet the previous month, I emailed Jenniefer and expressed my appreciation for the KF line for offering a set like this to grieving pet owners, and even though it wasn't in my budget, it made me feel good to see it offered. Jenniefer then asked me for my snail mail address and sent me a 'Bridge' keychain free of charge.

I've seen them do this type of thing before and even though I've always loved their whimsical jewelry, it's these little touches that reflect their humanity that to me indicate their underlying message. In addition to the First Kiss pendant, I've also ordered the crystal dragonfly pendant for this easy pay opportunity. The total per month came to about $27 and change.

Yes, they seem like good people and a good company. Maybe that is why they are not on as often on the Q. Their products are too good and they don't have to force sell. IMO

They had one show this past week in the wee hours on Wednesday morning (Tuesday night for me since I'm on the West Coast) and they were originally supposed to have another show sometime during the day on Wednesday. On Tuesday when I went to check on the times I noticed that the daytime show was no longer scheduled. I called Customer Service just to be certain but they couldn't give me a reason for the change. However I know that Jenniefer mentioned they would have another show in April.

TY77 - I recognize the Bubbles dolphin pin. I have that and I love it. I have collected a number of pieces from Kirks Folly and love them all. I do miss the magical sets they used have. I don't understand why the shows are in the wee hours of the morning these days. With the world the way it is today, we need a little fantasy to escape!!

I'm not into the fairy scene but I like her and try to watch her shows just for fun. I to miss the fancy set decor her shows are a "breath of fresh air".

Thank you for posting your pictures. Your items are lovely! I miss the old shows, too. I would watch these shows and feel transported. It seems like nothing really special ever lasts --- heavy sigh----.
