O.k........So Where's The Jewelry?

Yes, where's the jewelry? I read the featured article on WWD yesterday and have been checking HSN since that time, but no jewelry! I was so....excited when I heard (some weeks back), that Iris Apfel was designing a collection of jewelry for HSN. I love, love, love this woman's style! Well, maybe I've said that a time or two before, but it's true! This is exactly how I want to look when I'm her age. The signature glasses, the bold's all so fabulous! Anyhoo, it's my hope that the beaded collar that she's wearing (or at least a replica), will be among the HSN offerings. For now, I'll continue checking!

APFEL’S EYE ON DESIGN: Iris Apfel is launching today a jewelry collection in partnership with HSN. Surprisingly, the longtime accessories collector, who is never seen without her signature oversize black round glasses, has until now never dabbled in design (the Metropolitan Museum of Art even hosted an exhibit in her honor in 2005). “HSN has a proven track record to reproduce museum-quality jewelry and accessories at an affordable price, which allows me to bring my passion for the stylishly off-beat to the general public,” Apfel said.

The 13-piece Rara Avis by Iris Apfel line fuses modern and vintage elements and features brightly colored chunky necklaces, bracelets and brooches. Fashioned from Lucite, mixed metals and beaded materials, offerings will range from $20 to $180. “I have amassed an enormous collection of bags, belts, bangles and beads without which I would be lost. One can change the entire look of an outfit by substituting one accessory for another. I love objects from different worlds, different eras, combined my way. Never uptight, achieving — hopefully — a kind of throwaway chic,” Apfel said.
