The Fabulous Ocean Liner Woman

Thank you, Janavi for reminding me of where my original inspiration for Piling on the Jewels came from.
Of course, Nancy Cunard! I remember seeing this famous photo of her when I was Relatively Young & thinking that was Exactly How I Wanted to Look.
And , you know what? I've been Subconsciously Channelling Nancy Ever Since.
I have always thought that the bangles she's wearing were Elephant Tusk. Is that the same as Ivory? If so,I wonder if she caught the elephants herself?

Of course she caught the elephants herself!!

I believe all the bracelets were lost during the War.

Lost during the War? How awful. Thanks J. I must google this!
