Ô Miranda, toi qui illumine de ta beauté la mer bleue

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Kenneth Jay Lane coral brooch, my photo of the sea in Tenerife (Puerto de la Cruz), Mucha illustration and Sir Frank Bernard Dicksee’s painting “Miranda” (1878).

Coral jewelry

Coral is organic like amber ; it is formed by living organisms (corals). “When the coral polyps die, the hardened skeleton remains, and this material is what is used as a gemstone”. The coral has several colours: white (mostly), orange , red, grey and black. Coral is found in “Red Sea, the Midway Islands, the Canary Islands, the Taiwan and Malaysian Coast, the coast of Australia, Italy and Hawaii”.

Shift dresses

A shift dress has straight lines and ends around the knees. Moreover, the shift dress is loose to the waist and hips contrary to the sheath dress. It is the sixties iconic dress. I found this dress very elegant, easy to wear and retro.
