Frugal Snob: Custom Ryan Porter Bracelets

Fiona Paxton Coco Yasuko Necklaces: Native Neon

I’m in a tribal mood. With beads and braided leather, Fiona Paxton’s statement necklaces are just what I have in mind. The London-based designer has only been around for a few years, but she already has a great portfolio of bulky, boho pieces that are globally inspired (she credits Indian artisanship, the British punk era, […]

Natalia Brilli Long Beads Bow Necklace: Tie the Tie

Tying a big bow on a simple beaded necklace takes it from basic to basically incredible without really doing anything at all. Ribbons are just a nice feminine touch on the chunky beads. You can wear Natalia Brilli‘s necklaces tight for the multi-strand look or loose for a Roaring ‘20s flapper vibe. This is even […]

The Woods sisters have been my favorite jewel designers for years, so when they came to town for a trunk show, needless to say, I was there with my credit card in hand! I was pleased to see that their commitment to natural materials remains strong with the line’s old mine cut diamonds juxtaposed against […]
