Traveling the world, Lori Bonn created her first collection in 1991 from Eastern European design in silver and amber. Soon after, Lori expanded her line of contemporary jewelry, combining ancient designs with Balinese silversmithing and beautiful stones of every color.

Lori Bonn jewelry is handcrafted from the finest gemstones and silver, with great attention to detail. Every piece of jewelry is touched by hundreds of hands from around the globe, fusing cultures with authentic stones, genuine metals, and true inspiration.

Armed with a plane ticket and an adventurous spirit, Lori Bonn left her job in computer sales to see the world. Along the way, she became enraptured by Eastern European jewelry, and in 1991 created her first collection featuring sterling silver and amber.

Lori credits her parents, who encouraged her creative efforts from an early age. "I grew up in an artistic and entrepreneurial family. We were always experimenting with different crafts. From early on, I knew I wanted to develop a business that would couple my love of world cultures and artistic expression."

Today Lori leads the company's design efforts while her husband Bill Gallagher manages the business. As a mother of two balancing family, career, and self, Lori truly understands the joys and challenges of being a modern woman – and the amazing things that happen when you follow your dreams.

Zoppini Firenze Jewelry

28 Apr

Spring/Summer 2008 Jewelry Collections
Brothers Mauro and Manuel Zoppini are the owners of Zoppini Firenze, makers of fine Italian jewelry. The same attention to detail that has led to the domination of the modular charm bracelet market is given to every piece of Zoppini jewelry. You can choose one of the dramatic and bold contemporary stainless steel designs available in necklaces, bracelets, pendants, and rings of the Dare to Love collection that is accented with sky blue Spinel stones.

Dare to Love Stainless Steel and Spinel Stone Pendant
This eye-catching and appealing drop pendant by Zoppini is made in polished stainless steel and holds a gorgeous blue faceted Spinel stone at the center that catches and reflects light with every move.

Using the highest grade of stainless steel as the foundation for its jewelry, Zoppini has removed the barrier that has prevented many from wearing jewelry, because of allergic reactions to certain metals, such as nickel. In addition, Zoppini Firenze continues the artisan tradition of Italian jewelry craft, surpassing the highest manufacturing standards in Europe and the world.

If you're in the mood for something whimsical, the design of the Coffee Collection elevates the beloved coffee bean to a work of art. Whichever design you choose, you will feel infused with the passion for beauty that Italian jewelry artisans have shared with the entire world.

Coffee Multi Bracelet

You may opt for the ethereal Feelings collection, spherical designs that are complemented with 18 karat gold, leather, and cubic zirconia stones.

Turquoise-Color Stone 30" Drop Necklace
This box-link necklace holds a pendant of four square simulated turquoise stones that are prong-set atop an angled setting with openwork borders. A metal bead in the center completes the design.

Tori says: "For the last 5 years I've had a high end boutique jewelry line called Maven that sells in LA and NYC. The Tori Spelling Collection for HSN came about because I decided that I wanted to be able to share my designs with everyone everywhere at affordable prices, so I went into business with HSN."

When asked about what inspires her designs, she says, "vintage pieces are a huge inspiration for me, and I love gold tone metals with semi precious stones. I love jewelry and believe that it's good for the soul. I design the line myself. It's very important to me to share pieces with people that I myself want to wear."

Tori really wants her jewelry to make women feel great. She says that "the right pieces can be a total confidence booster. I'm all about women feeling good about themselves. My pieces can either complement a look or make a look. I wanted women to be able to have that red carpet glam but at very affordable prices. You shouldn't have to break the bank to look amazing!"

Allé Spring Jewelry Collection

28 Mar

For spring and summer 2008, shine is everywhere in terms of fashion accessories. From the purses we carry to the clothes we choose to the shoes we wear, the newest trend is all about shine from head to toe. Jewelry is one accessory that will never go out of style and can last a lifetime with the proper care.

This unique design has lots of character, and it just so happens that blue and yellow are two of the hottest colors for spring and summer:

14k Blue and Yellow Sapphire Floating Pendant
Yellow sapphires float in an oval of delicate Diamonds surround by Blue Sapphires that float within an oval Diamonds. Yellow and Blue Sapphires 2.00 Carat Total Weight.
16-inch 14k White Gold rope pendant chain included.

The complementary color for yellow is purple, and what better way to add some pizzazz to your new ensemble than these gorgeous earrings:

14k Amethyst and Diamond Earrings
Classic styling in 14K white gold, Amethyst, and Diamonds.
Cushion-cut Amethyst weighs 18.50 Carat Total Weight.
Post earrings measure 7/8 inch by 3/4 inch in width.

Bracelets for Spring
The key to combining jewelry with the richly patterned frocks and tops for Spring 2008 lies in analyzing the neckline and the sleeve length. Spring 2008 garments are shown having at most 3/4 length sleeves – making bracelets a more visible jewelry accessory. This sleeve profile makes precious metal bracelets the perfect backdrop for heavily-patterned fabrics.

The Zen of Silver

19 Nov

The Zen of Silver
Jo Martin has recently announced a new jewelry collection called "Elements of Zen." It is made from metal clay so the end result is fine silver jewelry with lots of texture and unique elements:

"I have been referring to "Zen" for a few years now, but never in regards to jewelry. It was always said in reference to a state of mind. A calm and focused state of mind, as if I would turn a switch in my head and go into an immediate meditation or prayer and quiet the noisy world around me. In today's fast paced world, there are times throughout the day when we need to focus our energy (not only) into accomplishing the many tasks at hand, but into enjoying life as well. So I say, "Go to the Zen"! Introducing the Elements of Zen jewelry line! The inspiration for this line came from just that…. simple, focused, and rich with trouble-free texture and finishes. contemporary jewelry for the body (and the mind)." – Jo Martin/JBrady Designs

I especially like the rings and earrings with pearls set in the silver.

Swarovski Presents a New Jewelry Line

17 Nov

Swarovski  Presents a New Jewelry Line
Swarovski is ready to present a new collection for the autumn/winter 2007 season called Soul of Time: The Epic of Light. It was showcased this past August in Malta, and is not available on the company's web site through a pretty cool slideshow. The collection has some asymmetrical angles and gives a feeling of sort a fairy gone goth a little to me. The creative director explains them as follows:

Nathalie Colin Roblique, Swarovski's Creative Director said, "A study in asymmetry, a search for slightly savage effects, and a desire for irregularity that satisfies a need for authenticity and truth… I wanted to create versatile and nomadic jewellery that never stops moving.

"Alive and sensual," she added, "these jewels can be rolled up or draped. Their fringes echo human gestures and move with the body. Some jewels appear to be abstract sculptures – somewhere between jewellery and art objects – but they are neither narrative nor realistic."
