Jewelry designer Tracey Pettingill crafts earrings, necklaces and bracelets in a range of styles, from serious sterling silver to fanciful and fun pieces made with Swarovski crystals, turquoise, coral, pearls and Balinese beads.
Pettingill finds inspiration in primitive art and the Art Deco era. Her signature pieces include a textural sterling-silver-linked bracelet with classic appeal and a dramatic, yet festive, beaded-crystal charm bracelet. Prices range from $20 to $500.
Her jewelry is available at galleries throughout the United States.¢
Stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie and Paul McCartney are already sweet on L'Occitane, and the company's new line of honey bath and other products will likely prove to be a sweet treat, too.
The line :quot; which includes face cream, body balm, soap, foaming jelly and candles :quot; contains a variety of bee-friendly ingredients, including:
Propolis, the resinous, sticky substance bees use to hold their hive together that also soothes skin; royal jelly, which is food for the queen bee (this substance is said to have skin nourishing and energizing properties); and acacia honey, which moisturizes, softens and stimulates skin.
