although i haven't posted in eons, i've been making arrangements as well as hunting and tagging vintage jewelry for my first ever trunk show on the weekend of March 6 and 7 (10am to 6pm each day) at the central park south location of exhale spa. hope ya'll can drop by to say hi, give me feedback on the setup and selections, etc. or, if you'd like to talk food, fashion or film (dance/ballet, photography, and/or what's happening to d.mamet--anyone else see his last two plays--???), come by! i got a little overexcited (de rigueur for me), and spent hours looking for the perfect "gift with purchase" item, tiny paper jewelry tags, business cards, postcards, and tiny ziplocs for each piece. each print job took two rounds (must be perfect!): zazzle and 4over4 took my quest for "just so" in stride (apparently, i'm not the only type a in nyc). i'm still waiting for one reprint... darn snow!
here are photos of some of items that will be in the show, either on the table or on me. above is an antique magnifying glass (very georg jensen--great style, though the prices are pretty scary $660-1500 silver bracelets? that's not fun!) to read silver markings. i'm having a bit of an issue because i want everything i got to offer. that either means everything only appeals to me or, in the best light, that it's a "collection" with a unified point of view.... these include a lot of mexican siver, tiffany's, vintage american silver pieces, some scandinavian, some native american pieces and i'll have vintage costume pieces too. lots of mix and match for the pile it on look i love. my style is very plain, tailored clothing plus an assortment of either chunky silver or layers of more delicate pieces (chains, charms and narrow ribbons--satin and grosgrain).
antique english watch fobs and chains (i wear them all together in a suite):
watch fobs, continued. hope everyone is cozy and warm. query du blog: why do folks go on and on about the meyer lemon? i find it lacking in yummy, puckering acid. have i only had the plato's cave version?
