Do you Dior?

Little known Christian Dior Facts…

  A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.’ – Christian Dior
Unlike many of his fashion contemporaries , Christian Dior was born into a wealthy French family. Dior was born in Granville, a coastal town in Normandy, France in 1905. His father was a wealthy businessman who owned a fertilizer company, and the family moved to Paris, when Dior was about five years old.  Christian Dior is one of the best known names in fashion and he has been accredited with bringing many new styles to women’s fashion. Initially though, women didn’t like his styles very much, because many of his designs used yards of fabric and covered up their legs, and below are ten more facts about Christian Dior, the master of shapes and silhouettes, that might surprise you:
1.   His parents wanted him to be a diplomat
2.   Christian Dior was inspired by architecture
3.   Christian Dior was very superstitious
4.   Dior once owned an art gallery and displayed Picasso
5.   He died of unknown cause at the age of 52
6.   Dior employed Yves Saint Laurent at 19 as a design assistant
7.   Dior designed dresses for Nazi officer’s wives while his sister    
       fought for the French resistance
8.   He was accused of using too much fabric in WWII
9.   His creations were favoured by the rich and the famous
10. He was the first couturier to license his designs. Critics said
        he cheapened the Haute Couture industry.
Stay beautiful!

While I was home my mother gave me some of her Dior costume jewelry remnants. I loved this earring. So I made this pearl motif using the earring. What do you think? Love all your feedback.

PS My husband said, “I guess a guy that grew up in a fertilizer company would know something about what effects a woman’s perfume had!” 🙂

I'm thrilled you've found me because I'll bet we're a lot alike is my bet. We both appreciate beautiful jewelry and we want to purchase or make items that make us standout from the crowd. Let's face it, we love getting compliments on our unique tastes. I started making jewelry to accomplish just that but soon became so frustrated because everything looked "me too". This is why I invented The Twisted Sister Technique. This wire wrapping techniques makes an amazing statement piece. I know everyone thinks their designs are unique but in the 5 years I have been designing I have never seen any necklaces that compare to the Twisted Sister. Per so many request, The Twisted Sister Method is available for DIYers in a Beading Kit in tons of colors. I also have a Chanel Inspired Kit available. I now have hundreds of TS customers and I want you to be one too. (Note: Every necklace is a 1 of a Kind!) To thank my loyal customers I created a Twisted Sister Newsletter that is a fashion and jewelry romp! It has been so successful that I wanted to turn it into this blog so it can be shared with other Twisted Sisters. I hope you will enjoy The Twist from a Twisted Sister and please tell your friends. It is so fun! Let's chat soon!…
