Customer's wares

1. Eva Franco, a fashion designer based in L.A., came into Cursive yesterday wearing this very cute dress she designed. She also had the fabric made and the embroidery done in India. We met last year when she was in town for the Accessories Circuit on Pier 94 and she bought some gift wrap to decorate her booth.

2. Color, texture, vibrancy, layers, and retro are some of the adjectives that popped into my head as I saw this young woman browsing in Cursive.

3. Left photo: Wren, a new member of the ABC visual team, has a beautiful anatomical heart tatoo on his right inner forearm and I thought how fun it would be to photograph it with our very heavy pewter heart object. Right photo: Black, I think the material may be rubber, flower necklace lays flat on the neck of a customer and worn with a vintage shirtdress with similar pattern of the necklace.

4. Clockwise from upper left: Pink tulips at Madison Square Park on 23rd Street & Broadway; metallic gold suede feather necklace; lilacs from Union Square market; silver pin on Edward's (an ABC 1st floor sales associate) lapel.

5. Photos of customers wearing Jeanine Payer jewelry with their own jewelry. From left to right: the Edmond Necklace (May the sun bring you new energy by day... - an Apache Blessing) layered with two crosses; the Jack bracelet (For what are stars but asterisks to point a human life... - Emily Dickinson) on a brown leather strap worn with a vintage watch; the Leslie ring (A mountain keeps an echo deep inside itself. That's how it holds your voice. - Rumi) worn with a ring from Tiffany's.
