Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry

The effortless glamour and modern elegance of each piece has resulted in a “refined yet unpretentiously chic” jewelry collection that “pays homage to the past while embracing the future” — remaining true to its motto: Rock Tradition. The collection has achieved niche positioning with its heirloom-chic aesthetic by capturing the attention of stylish women of all ages who appreciate the brand’s ability to youthfully reinvent important, legacy jewelry. The brand also stands apart with Ivanka’s power to influence a new generation of younger female consumers who admire and identify with Ivanka’s ideals.  Trump’s jewels have, in a short time, secured their place in the luxury market as well as with red-carpet style icons such as Demi Moore, Lindsay Price, Ginnifer Goodwin, Brooke Shields, Ziyi Zhang, and Blake Lively among others.

Each product is executed with meticulous attention to detail and flawless hand-craftsmanship. Miniaudierés from the collection are part of the permanent design collections at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, The Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the Los Angeles Museum of Art. Adding to Hollywood's nearly 50-year love affair with the brand, nearly every First Lady dating back to 1953 has carried custom-made Judith Leiber bags to the U.S. Presidential Inauguration ceremonies. Judith Leiber is truly an iconic American brand.
In team with LAUREN BUSH she made the stunning FEED 1000 clutch.
It is on my TOP WISH LIST it retails for 495$ and it will help needing kids

Miss Lauren Bush, and her iconic FEED tote bag.
I fist saw it at Bergdorf Goodman  in NYC few years back, and instantly
felt in love with the idea.
It is a brilliant way to do something concrete about Children in need.
Brava Lauren !!!


The FEED Kenya bag measures at approximately 14.5 inches tall, and 13.5 inches wide, with 6 inch handles and a messenger strap. Each natural burlap bag is lined with iconic Kenyan Masai tribal fabric, and is hand-beaded using traditional techniques. Leather handles and an additional messenger strap make this the most luxurious FEED bag yet!
as of today.... over 60,924.557 meals provided
and over 520,449 bags sold

Each FEED 2 Kenya bag is handcrafted in Kenya by a co-op of women and deaf Kenyans, and includes a $100 donation to the United Nations World Food Programme's School Feeding Operations in Kenya. Not only does this purchase support women and deaf Kenyan artisans, but the donation provides nutritious school meals to two Kenyan children for an entire year. The WFP School Feeding Program in Kenya is a well needed support system in a nation that is now dealing with a food crisis that has left 10 million Kenyans at risk of hunger.

Beatrice Wood Dada Mama

Beatrice Wood
by Tony Cunha

Collection of Vases by Beatrice Wood

gilded ceramic vase

also known as "luster"

If you ever worry about getting older, think again!
The Mama of Dada proves that age and beauty and wit have no limits.
She lived a full life, not only she fulfilled her dreams but she found serenity and
love in her work. She expressed herself with a true sense of style and
she was never afraid to experiment. She has a deep sense of humor and
an ironic view of the world.
Among her friends were the most prominent artists of the Dada movement.
If I will be blessed to live up to a 100 years old this is how I imagine myself.

Green Luster Plate and Cup

I simply adore her work.
I decided to take ceramic lessons and Raku classes few years back
because of her.
I am planning also a trip to Ojay this summer to visit her Museum
you can do it too on line
