Let me just say this: your collection of jewelry should be like a gathering of friends on your vanity. Every time you see your jewelry, you should be giddy to wear the pieces, like a giant box of candy beckoning you to take THAT particular piece out to savor. Kara Ross makes those kinds of pieces. The’re simply spectacular.
