The first time I ever met Judy, back when I was still but a youngster in high school, she made quite a first impression.  I was ushering one Sunday afternoon for one of her shows and she was dressed a bit more formally than usual.  I'm not sure if she was attending a party afterwards or had an interview she couldn't dodge, but I do remember being SO impressed by what she wore.  The whole outfit was black and white, every detail, every ring, purse, bracelets, earrings, everything black and white.  And all in grand style as you can imagine.  BIG earrings, one THICK bracelet, the whole image was simply stunning.  I've since come to learn the proper name for those earrings and bracelets she always wore and still wears today.  They're bakelite, and here you will see some of Judy's favorites, in this, her personal collection.  Remember, these items are NOT FOR SALE.  (For all pictures, clicking on them will produce a larger image.)
