ONE HUNDRED YEARS ago, our nation emerged from a deadly influenza pandemic with a burst of wild creativity that made the Art Deco period of the 1920s into an era that still inspires us today. When quarantines eventually end, jewelry lovers will want to celebrate in high style. The fabulous, fun frivolity of fashion jewelry is the perfect way to accessorize for waltzing into the light at the end of a long tunnel.
Jewelry by Cynthia Desser includes triple wrap bracelet (right wrist) in matte gold and pearlized snake on matte brass mesh with silverite, smoky topaz and golden Swarovski pearls, $375; 2-inch cuff bracelet (left wrist) with four strands of bone-colored snakeskin layered with sparkly twisted gold/bone chain with magnetic clasp, $375; and three-strand woven collar with citrine pendant featuring silverite, yellow jade and pyrite with 14K gold coated brass and oxidized and lacquered brass, $465.
