I was at the Cartier show at the Legion of Honor here in San Francisco
and there were pieces of jewelry that belonged to Maria Felix.
I am sorry to say that I did not know who she was.
Shame on me.
She is my new obsession.
This lady does not mess around!
April 8, 1914 - April 8, 2002
She actually sent Cartier a real baby alligator to use to make the necklace.
