Fashion History Snapshot

Edward Swoboda, a talented jewellery designer, founded Swoboda Inc. in Los Angeles in 1956 after having had an extensive knowledge of gemstones that were used in his manufacturing enterprise. The jewellery is characterized by magnificent thick gold plated metalwork, set with semi-precious stones and cultured pearls. Mr. Swoboda traveled extensively to South America where his gemstones were imported from. It was said that his polished gemstones and cultured pearls were unequaled in costume jewellery. 

Jewellery was designed with Oriental and Victorian influences. In 1957, Nathan (Nate) Waxman joined the company as a trainee and quickly learned the art of casting, plating, and molding allowing him to create many of the designs. In the early 1960s, the Swoboda firm maintained showrooms in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas and jewellery was sold in leading department stores Dillards, Goldwaters, Marshall Fields, Saks Fifth Ave., Bloomingdales, Gumps, Ciros, Harrods of London and Neiman Marcus. Swoboda jewelry lines consisted of complete sets, necklaces, brooches (most popular) and earrings. 
Nathan Waxman ran the company until 1985 when the company ceased operations.
