One of my personal weaknesses is my love for jewelry. I am drawn to handmade jewelry by artistic designers. One of the things I look for in my jewelry is a sense of freedom and playfulness. I also demand quality; and love to wear something which is unique. When I met Teece Torre through Twitter, I fell in love. All of the designs are handmade with semi-precious stones and the bracelets are made to order in your wrist size! Love that!
Being that purple is one of my favorite colors, I was instantly to drawn to several purple hued bracelets on Teece Torre’s website; including this one, and this one. I settled on the beautiful “La Notte“ bracelet which features iolite, citrine and aquamarine. I loved the richness of the gemstones set against the gold clasp and beads. The bracelet has an amazing color which appears very purple when set against other purple shades, black, brown or red. When against shades of blue, green or yellow, the bracelet takes on a bluish-purple hue which makes you squint to try and determine if you are looking at purple or blue! I love that!
All of Teece Torre’s pieces are handmade by the designer in her New York home. In addition to beautiful bracelets, Teece Torre also has fabulous earrings and the most amazing necklaces! I have my eyes on this one and this one. To learn more about Teece Torre, and to shop the collection, (great holiday gifts by the way!), please visit TeeceTorre.com.
