The Brass Hussy… jewelry to love

June 9, 2009

Meet Debbie Brown, the owner and designer of a fantastic jewelry line, The Brass Hussy. I love that she mixes new raw brass that is heated and darkened to look old with vintage glass jewels for her designs.  They have that perfect drop of whimsy to make you feel pretty and polished and the same time.  To top it off, I know you will be thoroughly shocked when you see the price tag…

I’m not sure which ring to buy. What do you think? Fresh Summer Floral Ring or Fresh Mint Lucite Chrysanthemum…

most wanted… House of Harlow 1960

I can’t seem to open up a weekly mag without seeing a celeb wearing a piece from Nicole Richie’s jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960.

House of Harlow is refreshingly inspired and affordable ($50 -$250).  I love the 60’s glam and use of interesting materials such as leather, jewels, silk strings and gold plated metal.

Nicole is a smart cookie for partnering with renowned Jewelry House, Mouawad. Pascal Mouawad has been responsible for many other super successful collaborations such as with Heidi Klum for The Heidi Klum Collection and watch brand Pop Watch with music mogul Jermaine Dupri.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a party at Pascal Mouawad’s home to celebrate the House of Harlow 1960 collection and received the famous leather drop necklace as a lovely parting gift.
