Turquoise & Coral Thursday

Kenneth Jay Lane...one of my favorite jewelry designers. No one does turquoise & coral like he does. His pieces are whimsical and contemporary and his nod to the nautical is just what I love. He is 80+ years old and began his career as a shoe designer for Delman and Christian Dior, playing with jewelry design on the side...He has created pieces for Jackie O, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Tayor and Audrey Hepburn. His designs also adorn the stars of today. And girls like us :-)
The lines are priced reasonably...look on Ebay, you may be lucky enough to find the octopus or starfish rings from a few years ago ~ Gorgeous!
All you need is a pair of stone/khaki capris, crisp white tank, delicate flops and one of his turq or coral statement pieces ~ HELLO Summer Afternoon (w/wine in hand...!)
