Her passion for jewelry - as romantic keepsake, fashion accessory, and personal statement - informs every page of Jewelry by Joan Rivers. She describes the pieces that she has always admired, particularly those that have influenced her own designs. She tells the fascinating stories of her favorite jewelry designers, from the fabulous Faberge to the phenomenal Bulgari brothers. She devotes a chapter to accessorizing with jewelry, offering countless tips on how to turn that plain outfit into a totally chic ensemble by knowing what jewelry to select, and demonstrating the different looks that jewelry can achieve in a series of fashion photographs taken exclusively for this book." "All of Joan River's love and knowledge of jewelry is reflected in the pieces she designs for her own line of costume jewelry - the Joan Rivers Classics Collection - hundreds of which are reproduced here in specially commissioned, full-color photographs. And she takes us behind the scenes to show us how her jewelry is crafted, from initial sketches to finished product."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will.
About this book
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands. True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus performers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead. Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.
