Necklace by MAFIA.
Incredible Kenneth Jay Lane necklace.
The original one above was made for Jackie O!
In the late 1960′s Jackie Kennedy Onassis commissioned costume jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane to duplicate a necklace that Onassis had given her. The ONLY piece of jewelry he ever made by commission. They agreed that he wouldn’t charge her for the mold which is very expensive, if he could use it for his own collection and make copies. This is a picture of her necklace from his book, “FAKING IT”. It was then made in coral and turquoise colored stones. Fab in coral, wish I could see it in turquoise!
Happy Halloween! Time to put out some favorite decorations! A pair of wooden, carved candlesticks picked up on a jaunt in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. A pair of Dancing Black Cats! Dancing Pumpkin Man by AUGUST MOON. Witch on a Moon by AUGUST MOON. Jack on a Raven by AUGUST MOON. The front of a fun T-shirt from Target’s Boy’s Department to wear while watching scary movies! My own crude but scary Halloween pumpkin. I hope everyone has a great Halloween evening!
Finally! After combing through various books about Bohemians, Bohemian Lifestyle, etc., I found this book which was just released recently. HOME SWEET HOME, Sumptuous and Bohemian Interiors by OBERTO GILI with an Introduction by Susanna Salk, published by RIZZOLI. This book is fabulous! Mr. Gili’s photography invites you into homes and has you poring over each page, soaking in the ambiance of each abode. I sometime just sit and look at each picture and it has caused me to make adjustments to my own home to capture the feel that these dwellings have. From Bohemian Minimalism (which I never thought I would see the words Bohemian and Minimalism in the same sentence much less the same house) into Full Blown Bohemian, there is something everyone with even the smallest streak of Bohemian in them will like.
