pearl-nautilus:

Probably the most famous pieces by Lucien Gaillard are his horn made hair pins featuring two intricate dragonflies exquisitely enameled. Less famous than his Art Nouveau contemporaries Lalique, Fouquet or Vever, his best pieces reach the same level of creativity and master craftsmanship. Lucien was the third generation of a Parisienne family of jewelers that had become known for their Japanese inspired metalwork and Lucien’s creations transpire the same influence. He has become famous for incorporating horn into his extremely delicate creations. Unfortunately, he made very few pieces and on the rare occasions when one becomes available, the prices are astronomical. A few examples of his work can be found today at the Museum D’Orsay in Paris and at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

but, bbygrl, why a tura satana appreciation day?

[tw : rape]
she’s a total babe. duh.
she’s japanese, filipino, cheyenne + irish. 
she was simultaneously a straight-a student in school while being viciously bullied for her heritage + size and punished by her parents for getting into fights. i mean, even without the straight a’s, she was strong and endured feeling isolated at home and at school.
she’s a fellow rape survivor — “Walking home from school at the age of nine she was gang raped by five men. According to Satana, her attackers were never prosecuted and it was rumored that the judge had been paid off. She tells how this prompted her to learn the martial arts of aikido and karate and, over the next 15 years, track down each rapist and exact revenge. ’I made a vow to myself that I would someday, somehow get even with all of them’, she said years later. ‘They never knew who I was until I told them.’”
she began living on her own at the age of 13, after her parents married her to a 17-year old and she wasn’t having that bullshit. i can’t even imagine what that was like.
she was an extremely successful burlesque dancer, and even when she got pregnant at 19 she danced through the first eight months of her pregnancy! and yeah, she still made BANK. 
faster pussycat! kill! kill! — a cult classic john waters apparently calls the greatest movie ever made. i still haven’t seen it, but from what i’ve read it portrays the three female leads (tura satana is the LEAD lead) in positions or power that normally men are portrayed in, and that’s allll the way back in the 60’s. she did all her own stunts and fight scenes. the majority of satana’s styling and one-liners, and some additional key concepts of the film, were satana’s own doing.
after being shot by a former lover and staying in a hospital, she decided to study nursing and she did just that. she even briefly worked as the dispatcher for the lapd.
tura satana passed away on 2/4/2011, but she’s still amazing and one of my inspirations as a woc, especially as a mixed-race asian rape survivor struggling to embrace my sexuality. <3 and that’s why i’m giving her her own day! just who she was makes me feel good about me.
