I have been dying to post on my blog but my preoccupation with work ( not slept for more than 5 hours a day for almost a week now , late sittings for last 1 month ) is simply not letting me to do so. I do not know when I will get leisure time . But when I bumped into the site of lizzie fortunato , I knew I had to post about them no matter what!!!!!
Designed by Elizabeth and operated by kathryn , the team of twin sisters behind the lizzie fortunato jewels truly believes that that fine jewelry is not about diamonds or precious stones, you can still make a Statement jewelry using recycled materials that will add to the wearer’s allure and can very well flaunt a chic look. They started their venture in 2007 and since then no looking back, they have created line for Victoria Bartlettd, Urban outfitters , Whistle+Flute etc, Elizabeth is designer behind the brand adores traditional techniques – be it weaving, embroidery , cross stitching , she applies them generously & so beautifully into her jewelry designs . She clearly puts a lot of love into her designs that makes them so striking and unique.
The spring / summer 2010 collection of Elizabeth and Kathryn fortunato, draw inspiration from a voyage to India . They traveled through out India sourcing fabrics, vintage textiles, stones etc before they launched their latest collection . The collection titled “ Faded Grandeur” revolves around past tales of romance and majestic life style of an Indian palace . The designers have injected a touch of glamour and old world charm to their latest collection . Totally in sync with the theme of their latest crafty collection , the range is revival of an old era, fine treasures that celebrates colors with its spectacular variety of Bib necklaces, bracelets , earrings , etc .
