The Cannes Film Festival in Cannes France kicks off soon for a two week fun fest ( May 12- 23) and many local Orange county executives will be there. However, I was fascinated to stumble across a local designer in Laguna Hills whose jewelry has been chosen to adorn the stars’ necks and arms at this week’s ceremonies.
Here’s the scoop.
I was window shopping this week when I saw some of the most fabulous necklaces I have ever seen at a shop called ” Left Turn“ in beautiful downtown Laguna Hills . About that time I picked up the local newspaper to see an article of the woman Judy Klimek who creates this incredible stuff. So I thought I ‘d pass it on to you in case you are looking for the next piece of artwork to wear on your neck or hang on your wall in a display case. These pieces are huge and they are sumptuous metal and natural stones. No diamonds however. These necklaces are going to be really hot and they don’t come cheap. Many sell for several thousand dollars—– but as I mentioned it is an investment in a piece of wearable art.
Here’s the official news release from the PR website and I will supply some pictures of the stars actually wearing some of Judy’s terrific pieces.

” Odyssey will be exhibiting at two locations: Palais Niveau 01 — 24.11. at the Palais des Festivals, which is the center of the Film Market and the main screening area for the Film Festival, as well as at Riviera H.14, a large and well appointed ‘Producer’s Booth’ the company is co-hosting with strategic partner Veland Films to provide a forum for film producers to present international co-production projects.

Siguiente will be working closely with Odyssey to review and analyze specific terms regarding any potential involvement by Odyssey in co-production and international licensing and rights acquisition deals.
“We are excited about our increased presence at Cannes this year,” states Odyssey’s President/CEO John Foster. “In addition to taking booths, we will be fully staffed and plan to be very active in the buying and selling of content rights.
