For the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Salma Hayek turned to the best – my dear friend Cindy Chao. The actress donned the Maple Leaves choker from Cindy’s Four Seasons Masterpiece Collection, this piece of course representing the fall season. It was the perfect attention-grabbing embellishment to finish off her rhinestone-collared Alexander McQueen gown, making Salma the best coiffed and bejeweled starlet of the evening. As a jewel artist, Cindy hand sculpts each and every single piece using only the highest quality stones. This is really the haute couture of jewels. Her incredible work is going to be acknowledged in a big way next month when Cindy’s masterpiece butterfly brooch will be inducted into the Smithsonian. Congratulations, Cindy! A well-deserved honor. Take a peek at the rest of her work here.
