Ana Khouri Jewelry: The Punk Princess

Ana Khouriicon takes personal expression to another level…another stratosphere, really! Both Tina and I have fawned over the Brazilian designer’s hand cuffs before (they’re not what you’d think), and with each new piece I discover, I find myself more and more intrigued.

Safety Pin Jewelry: Pin-Up Girls

One of fashion’s most exciting aspects is the creative spirit of turning the ordinary into something much more, like the everyday, mundane safety pin. It’s not hard to see how they would inspire designers, especially clothing designers who use safety pins daily to drape, cinch and perfect.

Fallon Palm Cuffs

Fallon Palm Cuffs: Cuff Me

Dana Lorenz of Fallon jewelry never fails to excite and delight. My newest obsessions are her stunning palm cuffs. Studs for the rocker chick, pearls for those who love a touch of Elizabethan sophistication, and pave Swarovskis for the ultimate in shine. The styles come plated in yellow gold, gunmetal, and rhodium. My favorite? Multiples at once!

Jennifer Alfano Birthstone Pendants

Jennifer Alfano Birthstone Pendants: Personal Effects

The older I get, the pickier I am about my jewelry. Sure there are some pieces too beautiful to pass up, but I would take a jewel with sentimental meaning over that any day! My grandmother gave me a few heirlooms when I graduated from high school, and though I didn’t fully appreciate them at the time, they’re now some of my most prized pieces.
