Author Cherie Burns signs her work and discusses the book.


Author Cherie Burns will speak about her book, “Searching for Beauty: The Life of Millicent Rogers.” Heiress and fashion icon Millicent Rogers was part of the pantheon of great American women who put their distinctive stamp on American Style; jewelry of her own design is currently on view in the exhibit “American Jewelry from New Mexico.” In “Searching for Beauty,” Cherie Burns chronicles Rogers’s rebellious life from her days as a young girl afflicted with rheumatic fever to her final days as one of the legendary chatelaines of New Mexico.

Cherrie Burns will also talk about her most recent book “Diving for Starfish.” In the mid 1930s, in the workroom of the famous Parisian jeweler Boivin, a young jewelry designer named Juliette Moutard created one of the most coveted pieces of jewelry in the world―the famous starfish pin―still sought after today by aficionados of fine jewelry.
