The summer solstice is upon us, and it’s time for us to enjoy the longest day of the year. After a long winter on the East Coast, we can’t wait to brighten up your day with these sunny looks!
Hana’s “Darling Daisies” Necklace and Earrings
Our Georgia artisan takes inspiration from nature and the traditional Bohemian style of glassmaking to design this fresh and feminine “Darling Daisies” necklace. Once the design is complete, she collaborates with her partner artisans in the Czech Republic to bring her artistic vision to life. Each lightweight, memory wire piece is adorned with glass in this darling daisy pattern.
Smadar’s Crocheted “Pearl” Necklace
Smadar of Israel is a talented young jewelry designer who is inspired by her international travels to create masterpieces such as this crocheted “pearl” necklace. She creates this unique necklace uno alla volta, crocheting the piece by hand of the finest 14k gold-filled wire and Swarovski crystal “pearls.”
Alessandra And Elisabetta’s Floral Three-In-One Florentine Handbag
With our friends Alessandra and Elisabetta of Florence, we’ve created this three-in-one, versatile handbag. Our ever-popular fold-over clutch shape, in rich suede, with one side printed with elaborate florals, can be dressed up or down. Wear as a clutch or wristlet for a night on the town, or add the crossbody strap for comfortable wear with your favorite jeans and t-shirt.
In his Castello studio, just a short walk from Venice’s famed St. Mark’s Square, our friend Giulio continues the lampwork tradition of his grandmother. Each of the beads in this exquisite torsade necklace is handcrafted one at a time over a small flame, from the stunning millefiori and round beads shimmering with gold leaf to the thousands of tiny hand-strung seed beads.
