Our Creative Director, Fernando DaSilva designed an “out of the ordinary collection of jewelry that is delightfully different, chic and of course trendsetting.” Here is a closer look at just one of the six models he styled. The unique embroidered dresses were hand picked by Fernando in Brazil in January.
Fernando combined a traditional caftan with one of a kind art jewelry. Sandra Baumgartena is the perfect model for this look because she radiates confidence. The look implies that she loves drama and texture and Fernando believed if she walked into Diane von Fürstenberg’s office she’d be hired in a moment!
Sandra’s cuff prominently features wire and beaded flowers hand crafted by Lena Gillespie of Purple Lace Designs. Her beautiful wirework uses our Tropical Punch flower maker as the centre.
Leather strips are riveted in place to attach the flowers using the rings already soldered to the back of the flower maker.
The earring are also show stoppers.
Filigree is set with a Swarovski crystal stone. Global Chic semi precious teardrop beads and gold chain tassels create the dramatic dangles. These earrings could easily be turned into pendants as well.
The Global Jet-Setter look was completed with the addition of these Czech rings which were already handmade and are being sold in our John Bead Outlet.
