Remembering Jackie Little
On August 18, 2013 we lost our icon and dear friend, Jackie Little.
Her close friend, Janet Seward, expresses our loss so eloquently recalling memories that made time spent with Jackie so special.
"I will miss her wide and sure knowledge about things ethnic. Jackie was very generous with me. She gave me my first showing at her home show, shared with me her fervor for beauty and her thirst for the story behind the object and her delight, if that story was a good one!
Her love for shell was legendary. Her favorite materials were shell and coral.
She took me to her dealers in Delhi and in what was once Bombay, now Mumbai- where she firmly told our frustrated cabdriver (who could not find the address that she had given him...) "No, We will not get out of the car and until you take us to our destination." He kept stopping and saying..."It's just down that block. You can walk from here."
But Jackie knew he just wanted to give up...as we had agreed on a pre-determined price and he wanted us out of his cab.
The cabbie persevered with her goading and eventually found the dealer we were seeking." This was Jackie. With her sense of determination and wonderful charm, she could do anything. Gosh, we will miss her!
