Woven Glamour

High Style Weaving

Weaving is the art of interlacing two distinct sets of threads with each other to form a fabric.  The designer behind Glamorosi, a couture jewelry brand, has taken the craft to another level.  Producing not clothes, but jewelries.

What's not to love?  This necklace is hand-woven in an open lace-like design and features two cuts of turquoise: rounds and drops. The drops are accented with sterling silver rounds and bead caps. 

The luxe collar is expertly finished with crimp covers and wire guards, and is secured by a box clasp inlaid with turquoise.

Every inch of this piece is definitely woven with style.

Available online at Glamorosi.

Lulu in Notting Hill

British-American Design

In the north-western corner of Hyde Park, in West London, England, you'll find Notting Hill.  The cosmopolitan district known for it's affluence.  That is where the designer of Une Petite Etoile* found her inspiration in creating the Lulu Dress for girls.

Now in Florida, Shelagh Nichols Traill, shows off her British roots with her modern designs that are uniquely practical and whimsical.  All designs are tested in her British-American household, ensuring that each product withstands the rigors of little people.  

Next time you stroll out with your little miss, do it 'Notting Hill' style.
