We have just discovered an amazing new jewelry designer, Jemma Sands. Her collection is handmade in Los Angeles and is the perfect solution for 18k gold vermeil pieces that can take you from day to evening. Similar to high-end designers like Ippolita which sell for ten times the cost…her pieces are worth every cent!
Jemma Sands has gained recognition for her crystal drop earrings and slender gold bangles—unadorned or with semi precious stones—perfect for everyday, you can put a bangle on and never take it off. Stars including Whitney Port, Hillary Swank and Kate Hudson love to stack similar designs on their wrists.
Jemma Sands is available at Chelsea Brentwood, 11704 Barrington Court, Los Angeles, Ca 90049 (310)471-4770. Prices range from $58.00-$138.00.
Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time to revamp the wardrobe and add fun and colorful accessories to the mix. With so much to choose from online and in stores, we’ve curated a fashionable assortment of some of our favorite finds…and to make them even more enticing we kept each piece under $100!
A few key accessories are all you need to be on trend this Spring 2011. Chloe wire-framed glasses on sale are always in style and who’s really going to know you got them on sale, right? Gold earrings in geometric shapes are all the rage this Spring 2011, as well as interesting bangles in bright and bold colors. Speaking of color; turquoise, coral and white always say Spring is here.
A lightweight scarf is also a must have for those cooler days and for throwing on at night. We love International Goodwill Ambassador (and supermodel) Liya Kebede’s new line of handmade scarfs called Lemlem, meaning “to bloom” in Amharic. The line is ultra hip and was started as a way of providing Ethiopian weavers with a means to escape poverty; so not only will you look good but you’ll feel good too!
Finally, the well accessorized gal always has a floppy hat in her closet; the perfect accessory for a quick getaway to Palm Springs or a leisurely day in Malibu.
