By the way, Sparrowhawk, a couple of thoughts.

The jewelry that I referred to was my sister's. Before she passed, she asked me to hold onto it for when her daughter got older. So selling it isn't an option.

If selling the jewelry isn't an option, then pledging it isn't an option.

I am currently unemployed so income is $51/wk for unemployment

If you're only getting $51.00 a week for unemployment, then either you weren't earning a huge amount, you hadn't been working long, or your boss lied a lot. (I spent a few months of my unemployed period working for the Massachusetts Department of Employment and Training - it's amazing what you pick up on a temp job).

Even if you can't find a permanent job yet, almost any part-time-bagging-groceries type job is likely to pay better than $51.00 a week. I was not earning a huge income, but I got $400.00 a week. Go out and start hunting for even a part-time junk job. (Unless you meant $510.00 a week).

There's also an Unemployment Blues board:

where you can gripe about the people at Unemployment and discuss job hunting angst.
