So I had a little distraction today and had to write about Topshop...now I understand how my Miraval event kept getting bumped from confirmed press due to the Topshop opening. Anyway, I am back and ready to continue blogging about the Ravinstyle.com/Wonderland Fashion Flea Market event.
Lets talk about one of my fav jewelry lines Gemma Redux, designed by Rachel Dooley. I love her story...she never really intended to go into the design business, but as a creative outlet while she was studying for the bar exam, she developed what became a gorgeous collection of architectural, yet fabulously organic jewels. Each design combines vintage inspiration (you know I love this) with natural elements and metalwork.
The bracelets are powerful and statement making...whether twisted stainless and plated steel mixed with sculpted prehnite or wrapped gunmetal chains mixed with green quartz each one is the perfect mix of downtown hip and uptown sophistication. The earrings are equally as spectacular. I don't wear earrings (let my holes close up years ago) but these make me want to pierce once again. The most covetable in my book are the simple twisted chains...so rocker, yet so delicate...adore them!!! Finally, the necklaces, like the bracelets will turn heads. The Jade drop necklace is beyond beautiful...almost like a steel spiderweb and the knotted chain necklace is power girl perfection. Love this collection!!!
You can experience it first hand this Sunday at the Ravinstyle.com/Wonderland Fashion Flea Market event from noon-5 at 418 West 13th...don't miss Gemma Redux!!!!
