A myriad of gemstones is an easy recipe for a knockout statement piece, but it can be more interesting to strip away the glitz and really focus on thoughtful design. I admire the honesty of Cynthia Jones’ organic, rough-hewn jewelry. They’re really pieces of art. In fact, her collection reminds me of the gifts I purchase at art fairs, but ultimately keep for myself. With metalwork this beautiful, who could blame me for being selfish?
