“Jewelry, to me is an extension of fashion, beauty and art. It is more than just metal and stones. It helps women express who they are. Certain colors and metals bring out and enhance a woman’s eye color and skin tone. There is great beauty in juxtaposed materials like lace, crystals, and rubies that can bring out warmth in the skin and a sparkle in the eye. Jewelry can also be used to distract from and correct flaws: A great choker can distract from a less than perfect neck and draw attention to the woman’s more perfect assets such as her eyes or cheekbones.”
