Lisner is an affordable line of costume jewelry with some iconic designs and it's the perfect place for a beginner to start. Probably the most recognizable designs are the molded plastic maple and oak leaves. These leaf pieces were produced in fifteen color combinations including autumn tones and shades of green. The leaves were set in necklaces, bracelets, pins and earrings.
Molded plastic was also used to make flower petals.
Less common are Lisner's rhinestone pieces often found in familiar leaf and flower shapes.
Some Lisner pieces lean toward bizarre.
Lisner jewelry has not been made since 1979, so finding it requires a search in secondary marktes such as online stores, antique shops and flea markets. It's not terribly rare, so you shouldn't have to settle for anything less than good quality.
Jewelry made by Lisner is hallmarked The mark is easy to read -- LISNER in block letters.
