Jewelry designer Samantha Conn has always appreciated the way a new piece of precious jewelry could make a woman feel and set out to channel that same lure and confidence in her designs for Luna Skye. Bars of unrefined watermelon tourmaline, slivers of moonstone, and oblong faceted champagne topaz, opal and labradorite are enclosed by pavé diamonds and fine gold chains. Each piece is raw, delicate and exquisite . . . and of course, perfect for layering.
The hunt has begun to track down an antique wrought-iron bed frame. I love that it’s ornate, yet understated, feel adds that old-world charm that my apartment craves.
Remember Sean Yoro, the artist that uses his stand up paddle board to access isolated walls to paint life sized portraits? The Hawaiin painter, known as Hula, is at it again with a new series titled A’o ‘Ana, translated as The Warning. He recently traveled to Iceland, where he witnessed the extreme melting rate of glaciers first hand. The scary reality of climate change inspired two new murals, painted on acrylic sheets mounted on broken off icebergs. It’s just a matter of time before they will disappear completely, along the icebergs themselves. Brilliant, beautiful and impactful . . .

And those shearling lined leather sneakers? Snuggle up to me, please.
