Enough with the pearls already, Muffy.
Oh, they’re fine for your society weddings, your ladies’ teas, your bridal showers.
But in these colorful times you want something a little bolder to keep in step. Leanna Lin’s line of festive jewelry is just the thing to jazz up your dull — oh, sorry, we mean monochromatic — look. The necklaces and bracelets, made from bright, adorably shaped vintage glass, Czech beads, and semiprecious stones, are strung together in daring color combinations (aqua and tangerine; turquoise and lemon yellow) to jubilant effect.
Lin also makes the cutest hairpins you ever saw (charmingly displayed on Barbie dolls at her Website), as well as unusual wedding jewelry that will appeal to the slightly less conservative bride: An organza-ribbon pendant necklace is demure yet distinctive, while the Cascading Pearls necklace, which drapes delicately over the neck and shoulders, makes a lovely complement to any strapless dress.
Yes, Muffy. You heard us right. Pearls.
