In 2002, artist Cynthia Bloom was working the proverbial Austin, TX, waitress “day job”, searching for her muse. One day, just for fun, she refashioned a friend’s tattered heirloom, a once-elegant multi-strand i.e. Belle Epoque necklace, into several dazzling contemporary pieces. Restaurant customers clamored to buy them, and she started taking them to work in an old cedar box.
Today’s Bloom’s jewelry has moved out of the cigar box into stylish boutiques, gift stores and museum shops across the US.
