By Nancy Staab

Tap into the latest jewelry trends via Fragments’  trunk show coming to Tassels Tues. Dec. 6 and Wed. Dec. 7. Tassels, 3802 Roswell Road NE, 404.364.9434 or www.tasselsjewelry.com

 

KIMBERLY MCDONALD AT SAKS DEC. 9-10

NYC-based designer Kimberly McDonald brings hers glittering agates and geodes and raw diamonds, emeralds, and baroque, asymmetrical pearls to Saks for those who appreciate jewelry that’s a little bit organic and imperfect.  “Jewelry was initially created to carry symbolic talismans and stones of energy and import. I believe it should still have that meaning…, “ says McDonald, and we can’t agree more. Her raw and reclaimed pieces create big drama without “pillaging nature” in the process.
