I love being inspired by beautiful things. The more I am surrounded by beauty in all forms, the more beautified my spirit becomes. I know that sounds sentimental but it feels bona fide. Jewelry, when done right, holds that power. The pieces that inspire and uplift me, that make me feel great, or the ones that I appreciate for their craftsmanship and color combinations standout as the winners. If I had to pick two for myself from the selection below, it would be Nak Armstrong's, the former partner of Anthony Nak, gemstone hoops. They are stunning, perfectly shape the face and are surprisingly light weight. My second choice are Ana Khouri's Patricia pearl earrings- a cross between Chanel pearls and Indian inspired cuff earrings, while also harking back to the 80's when multiple piercings were in fashion.
