On a recent trip to an Art Exhibit in LA, I met vintage jewelry collector, Maureen Haldeman.
Maureen is a true Glam Gal who has an affinity for sparkle and bling. “I’ve always been dazzled and drawn to vintage pieces from the 20’s!”
These days with vintage being so popular Maureen gives new life to old brooches. ” I have them redone so you can wear them on a chain or on a thin piece of leather. ”
Recycling has never “twinkled” so good. Her pieces recently caught the eye of Tennessee fashion designer, Jeff Garner who used them for his runway show at London’s Fashion Week.
High style and the reuse of existing materials are his trademark for his company Prophetik and Haldeman’s pieces were the perfect “green” accessory.
But her creative side doesn’t stop there. The Happening Art Gallery was showing off her latest artistic fling, taking pictures with her Verizon Droid Cell phone. These were not your ordinary photos.
According her husband Barry, Maureen has an exceptional eye and then uses a special setting on her phone that gives her photo’s an almost Andy Warhol-ish vibrance about them.
