Wearing great pieces of designer jewelry makes a woman look and feel beautiful.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Boston area craft and jewelry galleries will feature new pendants, earrings and other costume jewelry works, as well as couture handbags, by local designer Jenne Rayburn. Each piece in the Jenne Rayburn collection is designed, crafted and assembled by hand at Rayburn’s studio in Malden, MA. Designs reflect seasonal fashion inspirations and are crafted to accessorize contemporary and classic wardrobes. As a trained metalsmith and enamellist, Rayburn incorporates ancient jewelry techniques into her work, as well as antique and up cycled components from her extensive travels.
This season’s signature jewelry pieces center around the themes of glamorous holiday parties with glittering vintage crystal, the twinkle of reflected light and the luster and contrast of gold mixed with antique silver, reflecting Rayburn’s love of mixing contemporary with antique. “I’ve been working with local antique dealers to curate the vintage Swarovski crystals and cut glass in this collection,” says Rayburn. “Prior to each season I consider the components and stones available in the markets, and the fashion trends as shown at fashion week around the globe, to create unique and timely capsule collections. I only buy the best stones and utilize the highest quality materials.”
Wearing great pieces of designer jewelry makes women look and feel beautiful. You can find Jenne Rayburn jewelry, handbags and scarves at the Limited Edition Gallery, in Newton Highlands, MA; the Hourglass Gift Gallery in Melrose, MA, and the Karenna Maraj Gallery in Belmont, MA.
