Trunk Show

After spending 18 years in high tech marketing in Europe and the US, British-born Jackie Jones began her career as a jewelry designer in 2002. For many years Jackie sold her jewelry exclusively to high-end boutiques, gift stores, galleries and jewelry retailers in the US and overseas. During this time, Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor was a huge fan of Jackie's necklaces and owned many pieces.
 
We were happy to have Jackie here this week showing and selling our Residents her collection.
