There are some things that make you feel like a natural woman. But shivering naked in the spray tan booth and spreading ’em for your waxer don’t exactly apply.
Mitigate the impending misery of bikini season prep with a celebration of god-given beauty — in the form of dangly, Mother Nature-inspired jewelry from Seattleite Lauren Schwartz Ryman.
With color combos as whimsical as wildflowers and lines that cascade like waterfalls, Ryman’s designs reflect her love of the great outdoors.
Her lyrical necklaces, earrings, and rings are hardly made to accompany Birkenstocks and fleece, however. Witness the delicate designs of her just-released spring collection: lush clusters of rubies, amethyst, and blue chalcedony; gleaming gold hoops framing citrine and aquamarine. Ask nicely and she might set you up with a one-of-a-kind piece.
Either way, you’ll have something as naturally lovely as you are.
Those other spring beauty tricks pale in comparison.
