IT'S GOOD TO BE THE KING ITS GOOD TO BE KEN RUSSELL

Over the last 30 years I have had the pleasure of selling things to lots of celebrities .
  Lucille Ball ,  Cher , and 
KEN RUSSELL- were some of my favorites.   Ect ect........

Ken loved OVER SIZED faux jewels.  The bigger , the better.!!!!!!     The day he was here at  Galleria J Antonio he was sitting in our big window and we placed what he called THE MAHARAJAH necklace around his neck.   He had a twinkle in his eye that beamed with joy when he put something on that sparkled.  A man walked in and said " I don't want to bother you Mr. Russell but I went into film, because of your work " Of course Ken just smiled and kept looking at the Hugh crystal at the BOTTOM of endless chains and looked over to this man ,   with approval.
 I was informed by my dear friend -Lisi Tribble(-Mrs Ken Russell)- NYC- that he was laid to rest ( cremated )- in ENGLAND- with a  Galleria J Antonio necklace that was one of his favorites.  It was over 800 carts of rock crystal.


I'm sure Libe…
