Dr. Valerie Steele who is director and chief curator of The Museum at FIT
and received an Iris Award for distinguished contributions to the decorative arts in 2002, and in 2003 the Artistry of Fashion Award at the American Images Awards ceremony is helping me to look.
FIT's Harold Koda helped to edit and publish Rizzoli's Flair: Fashion Collected by Tina Chow so she is my best bet.
Waiting to hear from her!

Found Tina Chow Pics
Okay its way too late to be uploading all my photos, so I have the first batch attached to here. The picture of the jewelry is from ragoarts.com, and only teh pendants are attributed to Chow. The article is from Mao Mag website. The rest are my own photos from the Flair book. I'll put up the rest over the next week.

If you would like to see Tina's famous Bamboo and Crystal bracelets in person, I saw them myself in Paris at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. It is a treasure trove of beautiful jewelry if that is what you are interested in.

Also, the Flair book does indeed contain some pictures of her wearing her own jewelry. However, it does not focus on the jewelry specifically, ie no photos of just the jewelry. She does have favorites though, as in several pictures with different outfits she wears the same bracelets.

I'm curious about Tina's husband's reaction to her AIDS status? I had read that quote before about her being "naughty". Did she have a special understanding with her husband?
