1924 --- Alden Gay wearing an emerald and pearl necklace; a diamond and emerald cabochon headband; bracelets of diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires; a square emerald ring; an oblong pin of pave diamonds and square emeralds;
A day spent sewing. A young woman with a sewing machine c. Most likely an advertisement because photos would not have been wasted on the daily mundane household tasks. Yet I marvel at the beautiful things made with such a simple machine and time.
The flapper: short bobbed or shingled hair, straight loose knee-length dresses with a dropped waistline, silk or rayon stockings with garters, heavy makeup, and long beaded necklaces. Flappers are also associated with Jazz and dances like the Charleston.
For Grandma Claire- she and I both loved the A flapper putting on the ritz. I like the short hair and dropped-waistline fad (for lack of a better word) of this time period. Reminds me of singing in the rain.
