Fact: I love jewelry.
I see so much of it from looking at blogs, store websites, magazines, and going shopping, that it takes a lot to knock my socks off.
However, I've found a jewelry line that can do just that... THE MONTAGE COLLECTION.
One look at the website will show you just what I am talking about! The designer, Myrna Halpern, has taken her passion for creating jewelry to an impressive level. The story behind Montage is that of a curious collector and keenly observant world traveler who draws inspiration from the beauty she discovers on her journeys. Who wouldn't want to add a piece of jewelry from a designer like that to their collection?!? I've recently started representing her jewelry line because I think each piece is so versatile and SO unique! My husband's job allows us to travel quite frequently, so I am all over the place - it seems like multiple times a week! I decided I wanted to take her jewelry with me, when I could, and visit boutiques along the way, selling her jewelry....and exposing new people I meet to such a stunning, one-of-a-kind jewelry line. (You'll thank me later!) There are two lines that I currently work with: The "One Of A Kind Collection" and the "Hand Woven Collection."
I will post later on the "One of a Kind Collection." It needs its own special post because let's just say these pieces are all hand-made using vintage materials (think glass beads, rhinestone brooches, etc.) that the designer found on her many travels. Taking a quote from her website, "Vintage accents are often used to punctuate the designs with a whimsical sense of nostalgia and to add distinction. Montage jewelry stands about the humdrum of mainstream fashion with its combination of Old World Charm and and contemporary edge." Isn't that what we all strive to be when it comes to style: Distinctive? I know I do!
This post is dedicated to the jaw-dropping "Hand Woven Collection." Below are some pictures, but please go to her website here and become her Facebook friend here. You can see many more pictures in both places of her incredible jewels. I can say one thing about her collections...You will be the talk of the town in any of these pieces and get stopped where ever you go! (Trust me!)
My fashion motto has always been: It's better to be stared at than ignored. Start living that motto with jewelry from The Montage Collection!

Woven bracelet. Middle one in the picture above.
The woven bracelets come in standard 7 inch lengths but can be special ordered larger or smaller.
I LOVE THIS ONE! The closure (seen below) is stunning!
And how many times can you say that about a closure on a bracelet??
This lariat necklace can be worn so many ways! Even as a belt!
This pic & the one below showcase my favorite pieces from the collection!
Wearing these two pieces together is out of this world fabulous!
This charm bracelet is adjustable!
Close up on the several small charms on the closure.
Don't you love the special attention to detail??
The "Angel" necklace is my fave necklace.
I love it worn, just like this, when the hand woven part is on one side.
SO stunningly unique!

The chain used on both necklaces is called anchor chain, and it is styled after the chain used on boats to attach to anchors. Gucci has also used this style chain!
Had dinner last night & wore this new combo!
