Shattered Dreams? How about Dreams Fulfilled?

shattered dreamsBijules NYC Jewelry is most definitely one of a kind. A very well known and incredibly respected line of both jewelry and accessories, Bijules NYC Jewelry has received renown even through the international presses. The brand is incredibly unique, extremely talented in created pieces designed to celebrate not just fashion and style, but individuality as well.

And it most definitely does so. For example, just take a look at the Bijules 14K Vermeil “Shattered Dreams” Necklace. It is classified as a triptych medallion, because the pendant is hung on three individual gold chains and it actually weaves a story about the process of aging.  Specifically, it tells us that things can get more complicated as we get older, that they can begin to shatter and fall apart — but if we are responsible and if we have a good head on our shoulders, then we can put the pieces back together again and keep our lives in tact.

Talk about a strong message!

Dori Csengeri Brings Aphrodite to Life

aphroditeI have just fallen in love, friends and jewelry lovers, with Dori Csengeri Designer Jewelry in general and a specific piece in general. But first, I definitely think we need to talk a little bit about Dori Csengeri, who finds inspiration in both art fashion. Her jewelry is completely sewn by hand with tried and true techniques. We are talking serious needlework here, among other techniques, which leads to some of the most unique, one of a kind jewelry you will ever hope to find.

They are the true definition of haute couture: handmade and completely original, an array of beautiful stones, crystal beads with a bohemian flair, cabochons, metal, shells, wood, and leather.

Take, for instance, this gorgeous handcrafted Aphrodite Necklace.  With its beautiful color palette and sensual designs, it definitely channels the Greek goddess of Love.
