A visit to a Car Museum turns up a Jewelry Display.
It's fun to find jewelry inspiration in the fashions of the past. At a recent visit to the Gilmore Car Museum, a section on the display focused on the 1930's era. To answer the question: "What did the people who rode in these cars wear and look like?", there was a 1930's fashion display.
I learned that "...at the start of the 1930's, trends emphasized the natural waistline as a way to close out the boyish look of 1920's fashion."
This lovely jet seven-strand collar was displayed with a beautiful dress once owned by Matilda Dodge Wilson.
This elegant pale blue crystal necklace on gold metal chain is displayed with an exquisite beaded embroidered pale blue gown.

I'm inspired by looking at the vintage jewelry and clothing, how about you?
And yes, there were cars at the museum, too! ;>)
