The 30 pieces are separated into chapters: Emellished Bases; Bezeled Stones; A Question of Architecture; and Pearl Centers. And while the showy side of the jewelry is captivating, Lippert works hard to design each piece that ensures all sides are pretty: the reverse of La Fleur Bracelet is just as showy (albeit less colorful) than the front.
Her designs bring to mind a fictional era where flow-y fabric in rich colors match the romantic nature of the jewelry. But then again, they would be just as pretty with jeans and a t-shirt.
