Tonight is the big night! I know many of you will be off to see the new The Great Gatsby - how exciting! I just re-watched the 1970s version this week, which will probably remain my favorite because of the tawny quality of the filming, the sweatiness (yes, I love that) and the actors, including my girl crush Lois Chiles as Jordan.
I took the liberty of picking out a few things for the leading ladies of that film version. What do you think?
Daisy: ultra feminine, soft, classic, expensive, safe, vain
Materials: Diamonds, pearls, platinum
Jordan: young, athletic, self-assured, unmarried, stylish, sexy
Materials: cut steel, onyx, bakelite, amethyst
Myrtle: garish, colorful, desirable, desperate, doomed
Materials: Glass, celluloid, ribbon, enamel, paint

I've got a date tonight with a mojito, my computer and about 300 freshly-shot photos of this collection of 1920s/1930s jewelry. Of course I was thinking of Robert Redford-as-Jay Gatsby while shooting these. I think he would approve of the eerie greens among these pieces, especially the ring.
These will all be available in the shop by Friday night. See something you love? Get in touch!
