I've been doing my homework lately, studying and preparing for the next Jewelry Affaire. I feel I may have backed myself into a corner because the first one was so good (if I do say so myself). Luckily loads of research is something I have never minded doing. In college I loved the long hours spent among dusty books in libraries, and I love it today, looking at magazines, Etsy, and blogs. Good thing a blog led me to Jess LC jewelry (www.jesslc.com). I love the architecture of these pieces. They are seemingly simple, yet something about them is so regal.
The layering of chain and loop is intriguing. I love how jewels and beads are not the key piece, but rather it's the chain that holds the interest. I also love the play on silver and gold. Color is used but only sparingly. Great minimal restraint. Classic jewelry. More from Jess in the next Jewelry Affaire.
