Auction catalogues can reveal a lot about a person - their lives, loves and style. Sarah Jane Adams, a jewellery and antiques dealer who became an international model and Instagram sensation overnight in her 60s, tells her story through a lifetime's collection of rare pieces, val...uable jewellery and worthless objects, as well as personal photographs and effects from her 'estate'. A former punk, rebel and single mother of twin girls, Sarah Jane Adams was sent to boarding school as a young child, where she soon learned the value of packing her belongings for a quick getaway. Modelling her style upon Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards throughout the late 1960s and early '70s before becoming a punk, this globe-hopping iconoclast dealt and traded her way around the world, living a gloriously technicolour life. Told with wit, pathos and charm. Life In A Box illustrates how style is always deeply personal to the wearer, laden with rich meaning and adventure and above all, redolent of our stories.
