My idea of exotic jewelry is totally different from what Lydia seems to like, with her comments about the navel ring and nose rings and studs that we saw at lunch today. I like real gold and some sterling silver, but I prefer gold with precious and semi precious gemstones.
There is a young designer named Jennifer Yuan who has her own line of jewelry and accessories. I was clicking through her website looking at her new pieces. I love the 18 kt gold necklaces with the large gemstones. I have a wish list for several of her jewelry pieces. They are so in style right now and very versatile with different wardrobe pieces.
She also has a line of exotic handbags, including a cowgirl motif with a lot of fringe and an attached cell phone case. That would be fun to carry back home!
