It's the finds like this that keep me going as a researcher extraordinaire...ok fine a blogger. Ann Cherico designs this impressive collection of jewelry; her other claim to fame? Her twice great uncle was surrealist painter Giorgio de Chirico, which means she pretty much had no choice but to be darn good. Ah, the pressure. Her collection features a blend of materials: gold, brass, bone, horn, and gemstones through which she strives to create a balance between masculine and feminine, organic and synthetic. Very simply put, it struck me as pretty and edgy and just plain lovely, but who am I to mess with the artist in her. Ann will also be showcasing her collection at Project Las Vegas.
