I can't explain exactly why I am always surprised to find out when a 'star' is wearing my jewelry and am especially tickled when there is a picture to prove it. I think it is because it is so rare. I get all nervous when I see someone in real life wearing something of mine and just as happy---tongue tied as well. I was thrilled to find out that Reese Witherspoon chose to wear her 18k Gilda bracelet and Cabrina earrings a few weeks ago to an important and meaningful event at the White House. She was joined by First Lady Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton in presenting a donation from Avon to the Secretary's Fund towards their anti domestic violence efforts. I was happily surprised when I realized both the bracelet and earrings carry poems my mother wrote...
The Gilda says:
For as long as it lasts let the singer be the song.
For as much as it's worth let the truth outweigh the lies.
For this single moment in time let my own voice be heard.
And the Cabrina earrings:
Each bird must learn its own song
And fly on new feathered wings.
