Elizabeth Taylor is regarded as having had one on the most important private jewelry collections in America. In December 2011 Christie’s auctioned off Ms. Taylor’s extraordinary collection for a record $115 million dollars. This historic sale set a world record for the most valuable sale of jewelry in auction history, and set a new bar for the most valuable collection of fashion ever offered at auction.
I have been wanting to make some pretty little rings for some time now, so I got into my studio and started working on a new ring line. I wanted a delicate and feminine feel to them, with a vintage flare. I am pretty happy with the outcome and am particularly in love with little, “Daisy Chain” (named after the daisy chains I used to make with flowers when I was a kid. ) This little guy is perfect for stacking. I think it looks especially cool stacked with one in silver and one in gold vermeil. They will come in sizes 6-8 and in sterling and gold vermeil ( gold plated sterling). COMING TO THE WEBSITE SOON!! Message me if you would like to order one in the meantime and I can get one shipped out to you.

The 60′s were definitely synonymous with “mod”, and fashion model, Twiggy is one of the style icons you think of when thinking back this iconic fashion era. She loved to rock the big statement earrings.
They were especially flattering with her pixie cut and big, false eyelashes. During this time period earrings were often made with lots of plastic, lucite and vinyl material, like the earrings pictured here on Twiggy.
