LULU FROST THE MODERN PIONEER, or A Natural History= JEWELRY
Words/Images Judith Ecochard
LISA SALZER, the Lulu of LULU FROST (the last name is that of her Grandmother, FYI)---incorporates stylish antique objects with a sense of history (ie. 1860's keys) into beautiful hand crafted jewelry pieces.
The presentation at MAC & MILK Studios was stunning...with models posed in vintage fifties style dresses...bedecked with large ornamental pieces of jewelry that reminded us of the late heiress Millicent Rogers---a famous glam collector Native American jewelry- and designer of baubles too.
The run-of-show had the models names---and what they were wearing.
For example, Caitlin-a Gold Long Quill Necklace, Gold Buffalo Nickel Necklace, Double Black Pipe & Deco Long Necklace, Victorian Gold Watch...
In ohers words...piled on ---but in reality, each unique piece we felt would probably by a instant heirloom by itself..
