I think if I saw Elsa Peretti in a small venue I might like her
designs but I see her designs through the lens of being in the
business myself and the over exposure that a company like Tiffany's
can generate. I also see her designs through professional jealousy so
I think I must count myself out of judging her designs. They sell
well, that is beyond doubt. I wonder if my work had the brute
strength of Tiffany's marketing budget behind it what kind of sales
figures I could generate. I can dream, no? Sam Patania, Tucson
This is an interesting bit of history. Thank you for sharing it.
Some people have more dots to connect in life than others. A matter
of being at the right place, at the right time and being born to the
right folks. Luckhas played a great deal in my own life, albeit dumb
luck. So, some are luckier, and more talented, than others. This is
really an interesting example of how life works.
