Jewelry designer and porcelain ceramicist Kathleen Whitaker‘s ubiquitous gold line and dot stud earrings are getting a colorful lift with a new collection that combines her signature fine, polished metal pieces with rough semi-precious stones. The two elements are juxtaposed beautifully. Some of my favorites are the large chrysoprase and Peruvian opal slices, which are set with thick rectangular gold studs. The raw topaz and lapis stones, which are pierced vertically by thin gold lines, are equally stunning . . .
