Happy Birthday, Norma Jeane

Marilyn Monroe personified Hollywood glamour with an unparalleled glow and energy that enamored the world. Although she was an alluring beauty with voluptuous curves and a generous pout, Marilyn was more than a '50s sex goddess. Her apparent vulnerability and innocence, in combination with an innate sensuality, has endeared her to the global consciousness. She dominated the age of movie stars to become, without question, the most famous woman of the 20th Century.

She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, California.

The pendant above can be purchased in my Etsy shop - Zaftig Delights.

Goodbye Norma Jeane, though I never knew you at all. You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you falled!

Great birthday tribute and cool necklace! I still enjoy her movies. Recently saw Gentlemen Prefer Blondes on tv. There's never been another like her.
