Today's post is a veritable jewelry trunk show, consisting of pieces from new designers I discovered at an accessory show in Paris, as well as customized items from jewelry makers I've worked with for many years. Also introducing the 2019 Autumn/Winter collection of long gemstone necklaces, for which I sourced the stones in the heat of last summer.

  1. :-) Dear MaiTai,
    these new bracelets and necklaces look so pretty!
    As much as I like the tassle necklaces - I'm too short for them. I prefer the new ones, especially the ones you are wearing with your black outfit.
    Have a wonderful, colorful week!
    Big hug,
    Claudia :-)

  5. I LOVE your style - I'm 32 years old and hoping to become elegant like you when I get older!

  6. The Index Palmarum has the same "feel" as your 'La Marche du Zambèze' that if I didn't read what you wrote, I would have thought that it was the Zambèze. Do you still have your Zambèze?
