I went to the preview night of “Fabulous Fakes: Jewelry by Kenneth Jane Lane ” at the Norton Museum of Art last week and it is definitely worth the visit to check out the exhibit.
“Catch a rare glimpse of the work of Kenneth Jay Lane, the major American maker and designer of costume jewelry who continues to lead the industry. Lane, a stalwart of the fashion world, is widely credited with making costume jewelry as glamorous as million-dollar baubles. Hundreds of his creations–the likes of which have been worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Nancy Reagan, Diana Vreeland, Britney Spears and countless other women from every walk of life–are featured. A compelling figure and master of the bon mot, Lane is not only a long-established presence in society circles but a charming and wildly popular showman on QVC. He has outfitted First Ladies and Hollywood royalty in his fakes, and his early pieces now fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction.” – Norton Museum of Art
