It's Throw Back Thursday!
Found another gem in my files as I worked on the new website. Here is one of Jewel of Havana's very first customers! This was my first jewelry show back stage in the dressing room at Beauty & the Beast. Donny bought his beautiful wife one of my first necklaces. Did I mention he happens to be the sweetest man in the world?
I had a poster of Donny on my closet door when I was a kid & Marie's album was the first record I ever bought with my own money. It was a complete TRIP to play opposite him! Let me tell you - he truly is the NICEST, most generous human being on the planet. NO JOKE. I was in awe of how he handled the crowds at the stage door and the way he treated all of his cast mate's guests backstage. What a class act!— with Donny Osmond.
Do you have a great story or remembrance to share about your Donny & Marie days? Did you own purple socks? Who sang Puppy Love in the car? Let me know in the comments below!
I had a wonderful time as guest speaker for the lovely ladies of the Associated Women in the Arts membership meeting on January 14th. The presentation was about my journey from Broadway to Jewelry Artist and the process of how I create my jewelry. Below is a clip from yesterday's Advocate with some of the talented women I had the pleasure of meeting. Many thanks to Nanci Charpentier of Nanci Charpentier Art for inviting me to speak at the meeting.
