First Ever Trunk Show!

A very dear friend of many years, Marc Glasberg, has been carrying some of my jewelry for the past several months in his store in Boston, Marcoz Antiques. Back in my showhouse days, I could always count on Marc to help me out at the last minute with adding just the most lovely and unique antique finishing touches for my rooms.

I first got to know Marc when I became besotted by his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Basil, who used to be the cutest little mascot in the Boston Design Center showroom. Basil was the driving force in getting my first Cavalier, Noble. If only Noble had been as well behaved as Basil! At one point when my office was just up the street from the Newbury Street store, Marc had three magnificent Cavaliers: Basil, Zander (Basil’s son) and the sophisticated lady that kept the boys in line. . . Phoebe. Basil & Zander passed on several years ago, but Phoebe still accompanies Marc to the store every day with her always elegant style.

This past summer, the store that was a landmark destination on Newbury Street, moved just a few doors away to 173 Newbury Street. To celebrate the new location, Marc has asked to feature my designs in a jewelry trunk show October 23rd - 25th. Since this is my first one ever, I am busily making up new fall designs to bring with me for the show. Tomorrow is the first day of the Tucson Gem Show and yes, I am planning to attend. . .you can never have too many gemstones!

The beautiful photos above are of the old store and of course a very special picture of Phoebe, the grand dame. I am really looking forward to this trunk show as well as the surprise of the new store that I am certain will be just as fabulous as the old one and having a chance to see Marc & Phoebe again. I hope you will mark your calendars and drop by for a visit to see all my newest jewelry designs during the October trunk show.
