In John's Words... Inspiration for the Wine Red Opalescent Gem Necklace

Posted: Aug 18 2014

Our New Candy Opal Necklace is making a splash in fashionCheck out John's inspiration for this new design...(It was featured in O, The Oprah Magazine's September Fashion Spread).

"It's always fun to see how editors get inspired by our jewelry...

or how trends that I interpret are also interpreted by other designers~ and how a season's 'Gotta Have It' look comes about. That's why I love fashion...

This Spread from O, The Oprah Magazine's September Fashion Issue is a great look at a hot color trend from fall. Here's the top 3 things that inspired me to design this necklace."





1. Are you familiar with the gorgeous glass art of Dale Chihuly? He is a glass sculptor whose work is considered very unique... because of the large scale and environmental aspect to his sculpture.

2.  I just love seeing modern Hollywood stars wearing vintage jewels...and every woman needs a necklace like this- a piece that instantly creates a modern/vintage vibe to your look and is perfect for a cocktail party, a work event, OR a red carpet.       

3. The color of red wine... Cabernet Sauvignon happens to be my favorite hue of wine- and my favorite varietal to drink.

4. Tribeca, and the downtown style of the trendy New York Neighborhood... where you see many of the same 'red carpet beauties' in their off hours style.
