On Moday, the New York Observer posted a story about Alicia Keys' jewelry line, the Barber's Daughters, which made its debut as a pop-up shop in late November at the Collette Blanchard Gallery on 26 Clinton Street. The Observer reported that the collection would "expand its pop-up display...into a permanent gig next spring." According to Collette Blanchard, owner of the gallery, no such thing is scheduled to happen. While it is possible that the collection will debut elsewhere, Miss Blanchard has yet to hear of such a plan. No need to fret, though! There may not be a permanent celebrity jewelry collection at the gallery, but there is this fantastic decapitated Buddha. Now that is what we call a statement piece.
