Holy moly, I’m obsessed with South African artist Kurt Pio‘s larger than life diamond paintings. Many moons ago, while enrolled in the jewelry design program at FIT, I spent hours upon hours learning how to paint diamonds using gouache on paper – and let me tell you, all those fragmented facets are extremely tedious and nearly impossible to create. Needless to say, I’m blown away by how realistic and dynamic each piece is. Love!
With 10 years of jewelry sculpting under her belt, Joy Sangalang uses the lost wax method when creating each of her stunning talisman-inspired rings, earrings and necklaces. Each piece is carefully hand carved in wax, casted in 14k rose or yellow gold, and then set with diamonds, emeralds, rubies, moonstones and pink sapphires. Her rings are especially spectacular – they’re like ancient, spiritual artifacts, specially uncovered just for you. And stacked together? Even better . . .
Victoria Beckham is taking us to the circus next spring. But only after the recent merger of her denim line to the Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. The consolidation means a wider range of easy to wear separates, with that continued sense of flair and fun. Tops with oversized ruffle sleeves, super flared culottes, screen printed denim and bold, circus-inspired graphics make for the perfect amount of whimsical theatrics.
