Millicent Rogers, Boivin & Verdura

Several years ago I heard from Elizabeth Irvine Bray, the author of the wonderful book about the jeweler Paul Flato, that the above book was in the process of being written. I was informed that the author lived in Taos, I had high hopes that she would have unique access to Millicent's family and papers. I hoped she would shed some light on some of my lingering questions about Millicent's jewelry.
I have been looking forward to it's publication, and was fortunate enough to find this advanced copy

The illustrations I have included here are not from the book.

Her life, relationships, and her fashion exploits are delightfully detailed, enhanced by interviews of living people who knew her.
