I just noticed that Macy’s seems to have a knockoff of jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer‘s leaf necklace.
I met Jennifer briefly at a party and she was very sweet. She’s the daughter of Ron Meyer, the head of Universal Studios, as well as Tobey Maguire’s babymama-turned-wife. Her pieces are sold at Kaviar and Kind, the same L.A. store that sells my work.
One of my manufacturers and I like to speculate on which of my pieces will get knocked off first. We tell each other we’re not going to sweat it because we have a million other ideas and we will just move on. Or sue the bitch’s ass. One or the other. I pray I make some money on the piece first, though. It would be very depressing if I made no money but some Far East manufacturer took my idea and made tons of money.
Speaking of money, my horoscope yesterday said: “The big lessons of the day are patience and perseverance. Of course you’d rather be learning lessons like how to spend all the money that seems to fall down from the sky wherever you walk.” Thanks for rubbing it in, obnoxious astrologer person!
Well, I’m off to see if Ron Meyer will adopt me. Bye!
