As I sorted recent Pins on Pinterest, there was a pattern. I kept pinning this interesting woman. What attracted me??? Glasses, Jewelry, Color Combo, Age, I'm not sure. Once I realized that I have many pictures of the same woman. There had to be a story. I learned her name then I had to google her to find out more.
Iris inspires me in so many ways. I now have a board decicated to Iris. Only Icons rate their own boards. First, her distinctive personal style. She is a collector and decorator. Her lovely 5th Avenue Home is filled with collections. She started a fashion business in her 80's.
Finally...I started collecting Vintage Bakelite jewelry the second I saw this photo of Iris. If we knew eachother we would be friends. Now where do I get a pair of those glasses!!!
I have been interested in ART all of my life. I studied art in college and opened a porcelain restoration business in Louisville which combined my interest in art with my appreciation and love of detail. I have always been a collector of many things, amassing hundreds of thousands of buttons, trinkets, charms, bijoux, beads, found objects, and all sorts of fun things. I currently produce a line of whimsical art jewelry which I wholesale and retail across the country. I've been married to Sam for 20 plus years and we have 3 rescued Black Chow Chow's. Bear, KeLe, and Zoee my children with FUR! I will be sharing my various collections, art shows, artists, friends etc. And any thing else I think is cool will be in this Blog.
