In our very humble opinion-if one is going to wear jewelry-like Texas-one might as well go big and bold.
Two recent collections we previewed-fit that MO beautifully...
The Italian born, now NYC living jewelry designer Giuliana Michelotti, and her GM Collections---take inspiration from Asian and African tribal/ethnic traditions---and visuals from global travels.
|Hand wax molds-delicate vine and flower ring is new to the collection. Very Game of Thrones...|
|this tray of rings beckoned to be tried on....featuring opals, smokey topaz, coral, herkimer diamond...set in silver|
|Silver with natural mended turquoise|
|leather cord-holds shell necklace-hand shaped pure silver beads|
|cuffs in pure silver|
New to us, but he shouldn't of been-Michael Schmidt is a "wardrobing" and jewelry designer ---and if the items we saw reminds one of Chrome Hearts...like it did us the sec we saw ---that would be correct as this LA based talent has crafted pieces for the go - to for rock and rollers' label. And designed some of the most inventive apparel creations for the likes of Lady Gaga, Fergie, Madonna, Rhianna, Cher...etc---to wear while performing.
A picture is worth a thousand words---even 2D ones...
FYI: Dita Von Teese's much accoladed 3D dress, created on an iPAD---the wave of the future, imho---created by Schmidt and an architect collaborator using digital rendering technology, with a 3D printer---polished off naturally- with added Swarovski crystals (over 12,000 of them).
