I have a fascination for shells—particularly the way nature has created their sculptural forms and amazing colors. I’ve collected them for years and I keep my favorites in an antique cabinet that once held Estée’s collection of handpainted porcelain birds (she clearly inspired my interest in collecting). Shells were the inspiration behind my AERIN charm necklaces and bracelets. Coral beads give enamel and gold shells an extra pop of color in the AERIN Thera Coral and Gold Charm Necklace. A selection of shells, including scallops and whelks, are enhanced with gold detailing in the Thera Double Layer Charm Necklace. Sea horses are a beautiful addition to gold clam shells in the Thera Gold Charm Bracelet, while the same shells are also incorporated into a delicate, long strand for the elegant Islamorada Necklace.
I love the idea of carrying a little part of the beach with me, even when I’m in the heart of the city.
