Victoria Pasternack (Victorian Hansen Flemming) 1918 - 2004 was raised in New Jersey and worked at the Fulper Pottery Company for a brief time. She considered herself a china painter and it was in New York City where she became fascinated creating painted porcelain jewelry and sold her wares at the Greenwich Village Art Show at 8th Street and 6th Avenue. The development of a second technique using fused glass on porcelain also became very popular. Her first husband was Andrew Flemming whose sir name she continued to use and her second husband was Bill Dwyer, a native of New Orleans, who help develop her business savvy. Skitch Henderson, conductor and founder of the New York Pops, was one of her first customers and Moritimer Levitt, owner of the Custom Shirt Shop Shirtmakers, became Flemming's biggest customer. At the Custom Shirt Shop her cufflinks sold for $3.50 of which she received $1.75 from each pair. . . . information source - Milky Way Jewels.
