I am sure you have it - a box or a drawer where you keep the jewelry that you don't wear. Ever. These are jewels that have a special meaning to you - whether they were inherited from Aunt Betty, a wedding day gift from your in-laws, or a high school graduation ring - but you can't put them on. They are too fussy, too colorful, too plain, too manly, too girlie - you get the idea.
One of my favorite things to do is play with clients' "unwearables" and recreate them into pieces that they will love and adorn themselves with. Here's a recent example.
The earrings are a classic ZAIKEN motif, but slightly larger, as the diamonds my client had were larger. Imagine from a box of "unwearables" to this pair of gorgeous earrings.
