The Jewelry Empress of the Oscars

My personal favorite wasScarlett Johansson


Scarlett's emerald dress by Versace and edgy haircut formed the perfect canvas for the Piaget Mediterranean Garden ear cuff set in 18k pink gold.  The cuff contains five pear-shaped emeralds, four pear-shaped aquamarines, two pear-shaped green tourmalines, and 278 brilliant-cut diamonds. WOW.

Her birthstone is Topaz, just in case you were wondering.

What I loved about the cuff is that it completed an asymmetric look with the simple stud in her right ear.  Balanced asymmetric designs draw attention- the good kind- and are hard to achieve.  This look hit the mark.

Way to go Scarlett! You are the Jewelry Empress of the Oscars this year.


Accepted to Red-Dot Gallery!

My first exhibition!  Opening night is this Friday, December 9th from 4:30 to 7:30 PM.

Red-Dot Gallery

Four of my pieces are in the exhibit and will be displayed and available for purchase from December 9th through January 16th. 

I'm so excited!

Because of the "Winter Holiday" nature of the exhibit, I named the pieces after the season.  It's usually difficult for me to name pieces for some reason, but this time wasn't too bad.  A little help from friends, of course!
