A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Alexis Bittar Bangles with Swarovski Crystals

I'm not big on Lucite jewelry but these ALEXIS BITTAR pieces are quite the exception.  I think they put me in instant summer mode:  cocktails at a rooftop soiree, vacationing, and all the other grand activities we engage in when we show more skin. 

The Modernist Embraced bangle is a large hand sculpted Lucite bracelet embellished with 18k gold-plated brass, glittering pave and glass stones and Swarovski crystals with a magnetic clasp/$325.  Create a nice balance with the Miss Havisham skinny bangle hand set with Swarvoski crystals in 18k gold-plate brass (three other metals to choose from)/$195.  Both pieces are available at Nordstrom.

Alexis Bittar is an American jewelry designer and recipient of the 2010 CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year Award.


  1. Pretty stuff-- crazily out of my price range.

      Some pieces are a bit pricey but consider it an "investment." Another accessory brand I love is Jessica Simpson...her price range is way more affordable.
