I found my first model sometime last April and we have been together ever since. Her name, according to her signature, is Anne. She signed the photo in 1927. She has the most lovely eyes - and boy can she sell! I think I could photograph a rock next to her and people would say "What a great Art-Deco rock that is!" I still use her regularly, and here she is:
I like to match the time period of the jewelry with the model. I also match the type of jewelry to the model. For instance, the model to the left of Anna has the sweetest face imaginable! Who can resist her? She helps me model pretty, wedding items and delicate pieces. Maybe some of you have been smitten by her charms? Now, I need to keep this on the QT, because, the models above are not yet aware. I did, however, find some new potential models today. This is, as you know, part of the business. Modeling is a career for the young, and, new faces must be added all the time. The group of women I found all graduated from high school in 1932. I admit, I picked the pretty girls. I mean, this is business! But they are a lovely bunch, and, will likely make their modeling debut over the next few weeks. Make them feel welcome, as many of them are quite nervous. Not the one in the hat, however. Her name is Viola and I think she can handle anything!
