Revisiting the Think Tank

     As a former client of Peclers Paris, I often check back to the site to see what it happening.  Today I was delighted to find that any user can browse the site and learn trends they are forecasting for lifestyle and design.
Just go to www., put in your location and sign up for the news letter.  Spend time on the site exploring the inspirations, key themes,  futura, the secret shop--the one I find fascinating.
All I could think of today was how I would design my "Secret Shop"... and what clues I would leave for the discerning who want to push the envelope and seek out the edge of the flap.

Rediscovering Treasured People

Today I heard that Pookie Blezard is having a sale, 70% off!  Pookie is one of the most creative textile designers I have met.  She resides in London, designing some of the most out of the box, off the planet scarves and clothing I have seen.  I had the opportunity to visit her in her studio during the last decade, just when she was  getting a new textile printer.  Crammed with fabrics all over the place, most she had designed and had printed, she demonstrated her technique of free motion on a very old but true single needle machine.  She was always ahead of her time.   Most everything she makes is one of a kind.  I have been collecting her work for 15 years.   If you come across a label that reads "Pazuki London", grab it.

So if you get a chance to check out her facebook page, I promise you will see things you have not experienced.

An Educated Consumer is the Best Customer

As I interact with more artists and collectors on the internet, I find that the educational service they are providing is fabulous.  Here is a blog that discusses the different American costume jewelry manufacturers that once flourished in the 20th century.   It is my hope that one day American will return to making great quality and that consumers will support our product.

A Great Blog to Learn About Vintage Costume Jewelry

Artists, collectors, vintage lovers of all mediums will love this blog.  I discovered it today when the blogger featured one of my pieces in her discussion on vintage Czech jewelry.

But even cooler is the fact that she is so willing to help people learn about vintage and answers your questions right away.  She  is a wealth of knowledge, has street smarts and understands the online markets.

Here is it:
