These eyecatching pieces are crafted by hand in Dorian's studio in NYC using semiprecious stones, sterling silver & Venetian glass - originally inspired by her travels. “Italy had always been one of my favorite countries to visit," notes the award-winning designer. "The almost palpable sense of their history, the appreciation of the things that make life pleasurable, and the celebration of beauty wherever it may appear, was not only evident in its magnificent buildings but also in something simple as a carefully placed bowl of colorful handblown glass beads shimmering in a shop window.”
From the clusters of Labradorite-faceted briolette bracelet to the silver cuff bearing a glass medalion of a Venetian lion, pearl & silver tassel earrings, or a pearl choker adorned with a mother-of-pearl flower, these pieces are as collectible as they are colorful. “The transformative power of color is amazing,” says Webb. “Because of its intimate nature and closeness to the body, the right color of jewelry can immediately draw attention to your most flattering features...To me, a piece of jewelry is successful when, inevitably, every time you wear it, someone tells you how beautiful you are.”
