Kirks Folly fabulous jewellery. American company Kirks Folly, producing fabulous jewelry for 35 years, closed November 1, 2014, to the misfortune of its fans. It was success that made a profit. There were adult successors who could continue the business. Well, why then the company closed? I find only one answer – the favorite child, which they developed for 35 years and in which they have invested so much time, love and life, they could not trust anyone. History knows many examples when the control over the company changed owners and was sold, or remained only its name, which over the years lost its former appeal. Managers began to save, alternated with designers and grandeur go into oblivion. Apparently this fate the Kirks family did not want for their company.

Getting to know the history and Kirks Folly jewellery will not leave anyone indifferent, for sure it will be love at first sight. Two young American women very pretty sisters Helen and Jennifer Kirk in 1979 merged into a creative alliance. The start was like Hand made. Helen was responsible for the design and Jennifer for the implementation of created products. And they did not create jewelry, not enchanting brooches, but accessories and hair ornaments.

They created themselves, selling it themselves. Great bands, headbands, barrettes, hairpins, all kinds of clips, bows and ribbons. Along with the tapes, rubber bands and traditional fabrics used feathers of various birds, faux pearls, crystals, shells, fur, plastic tubes, wooden buttons. A lot of that was unusual, not typical, but overall looked amazing.

After some time, the talent did not go unnoticed and designers began to buy goods, and after some time the contract was signed with the trade mark Bloomindagles.

Jennifer

April 19, 1980 was released first major article about the company, on the front page of The New York Times. On a photo of Jennifer. The article was called “Hair jewelry from a Threesome”. It was the first big recognition.

Page of Vogue early 1980s. The company began making brooches. On the model, not all brooches by Kirks Folly, but the largest ones – their production.

In the early 80s the family business joined brother George and sister Elizabeth Kirk. Even their mother supported the family business, and as an opportunity to help children. A great example of unity and understanding in the family! Everything worked well and was fruitful. The company opened a small production. Almost everything was done manually.

Kirks Folly specialized in the manufacture of costume jewellery and accessories. The expression “Dreams really do come true” is the motto of Kirks Folly. History of magical, enchanting, whimsical jewelry of this brand began in 1979 in New York, by a brother and three sisters – George, Helen, Jennifer, Elizabeth.

Their inspired fantasy created a sparkling world full of fairies, angels, mermaids, mystical creatures and graceful dancers. The first jewels of Kirks Folly, put up for auction QVC, were sold out for 40 minutes. All work not only with fantastic design, but also made with impeccable quality, which is evident in the smallest details.

Angels, lovely fairies, mythical animals, magical mermaid amazingly beautiful flowers, fairy-tale characters – a world of magic and fantasy dreams!
