)-- Bijoux in French means ‘jewelry’. The 50s was a generation that played a role in the budding lives of the fashion accessory or jewelry manufacturing industry. How lovely of the French to be involved in the fashion industry when the rest of the world conceded.
Take for example Dorothy Fenwick's self-published book, The Fabulous 50s: Florenza Art Hollycraft. When the rest of Europe and America were fighting over guns and the equilibrium of power, Fenwick surmised an era where fashion and jewelry equates to peace, love and revolution. Society became affluent and people paid more attention to the craft of jewelry making. Fenwick shared in this self-published book of hers the love and passion she acquired for this extensive collection.
Colored pages will take you to the best costume jewelry wholesale manufacturing companies in the country – Florenza, Art and Hollycraft – and be enamored at their unique products and designs. Costume jewelry is highlighted as vanity in an inexpensive form and lets everyone enjoy the glitz and glamour the jewelry industry brings to all classes in society.
This Xlibris release very much downplays the recession-infested fashion industry. The Fabulous 50s: Florenza Art Hollycraft will take you to the most unforgettable era there was, the 50s.
