Still "Bling"ing in Beyond Bling @ LACMA

A night I'll never forget - the Opening Night of BEYOND BLING: Contemporary Jewelry from the Lois Boardman Collection, October 1, 2016. A magical evening that makes Los Angeles the City of Angels (and Dreams) all the more true. I couldn't have been more pleased at the care that went into the exhibition design and display, my necklace having a prominent position at the front of the show. Then BAM! - turn over the exhibition catalogue and there is my piece shining brightly much like the Cartier neckpieces on the back of show catalogues that inspired my work back in 2008.

Meeting Lois herself was the icing on the cake, as she is the most down-to-earth, warm-hearted and humble person of stature I've met in a while. Hugs abound!

Press continues to roll in on this very important jewelry exhibition. The fact that the show has high visibility both in the physical placement within the museum itself and nationwide through the media is very exciting for the art jewelry field at large. May more art jewelry collectors with important collections follow suit.
