Definitions for "Juliana"
Keywords:  lizza, cynewulf, runic, elster, gloria
Juliana jewelry is distinguished by many beautiful, brightly-colored glass stones of different shapes and sizes (often including speckled or "painted" stones), with very little metal showing in the pieces. The well-made designs are very feminine, and often use cluster settings. Stones were either prong-set (usually with four prongs) or glued in. Juliana bracelets usually have five links and a fold-over clasp (plus most have a safety chain with a spring ring). Juliana pieces were marked with only a paper hang tag (a detachable tag), so positive identification is not usually possible. Juliana jewelry was produced from 1950 until the 1960s, and pieces are now highly prized by collectors. Juliana pieces were manufactures by the De Lizza & Elster company. A few other companies, including "Gloria" (perhaps made by G. Fox and Co. of Hartford, CT) and "Tara," sold pieces similar to Juliana pieces.
Juliana [Exeter Book, fol.65b-76a], is one of the four signed poems ascribed to the mysterious poet, Cynewulf. It is his second longest piece at 731 lines, although, at some time the manuscript was damaged so that presently we are missing two large portions of the text amounting to 130-140 lines. Like his other works, the characteristic runic signature is found interwoven into the closing lines of the text.
