Re-Creating jewelry for Larry McQueen, the owner of The Collection of Motion Picture Costume Design was one of the most challenging and interesting projects in our studio.
We were commissioned to make three unique pieces of jewelry that would be used for the costume exhibition at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angles. The original jewels have been lost over time.
Mr. McQueen and I delivered the gems and helped install the jewelry under the careful supervision of the curator and designer, Deborah Nadoolman Landis.

Susan Hayward’s Star Shaped Emerald and Diamond Brooch
