OpuluxeLtd.com™ Latest Daily Obsession: Noelani Designs Hawaiian Jewelry!!! [#NoelaniDesignShop, #hawaiianjewelry]

I am unapologetically obsessed with the daily feats of fabulosity by total strangers.  No exaggeration; it’s my fuel for life. It’s usually an either/ or type of encounter. The fabulosity wielding person either directly  possessses  the “It” factor or is in possession of something tangible that conveys the coveted “It” factor for them as if they’re on fabulosity autopilot; so to speak.  As some of you know; we’re opening up second office in Miami and I’ve been bi-coastal for almost 2 and a half months now. That’s why it’s taking me soooo long to post updates. Well in Miami everything besides their insane reckless driving moves very slow. If it weren’t for the slowest elevator I’ve ever waited on; I might have missed out on the ever elusive double dip of fabulosity!  I met an absolutely beautiful super cool chick wearing  the most beautiful pair of earrings ever!  Besides “wanting” to instantly know ALL of her beauty and fitness secrets;  I very much “needed” to know EXACTLY where she got those Holy Grail earrings. OMG the picture I’m including doesn’t even do them justice! They are literally multifaceted goddess-worthy creations. I will order my pair as soon as I get back from my next trip. I don’t want anyone, not even Mr. OpuluxeLtd.com™ to sign for the package. These are gonna be all mine. I can’t wait ’til I get them, They look so versatile. I imagine wearing them throughout the day and at night for dinner or an event.  Anywho , I gave Ms. Fabulosity my business card and told her that besides needing to add a pair of those gorgeous earrings to my jewelry stash; I’d also love to interview her friend Noelani for OpuluxeLtd.comt™ in the  near future.  I went to nearby Lincoln Road Mall to jewelry shop and to specifically find a similar pair of earrings. I found absolutely nothing that compared to them.  I impulse bought a small chandelier for our bathroom to temporarily appease my “bling” envy. I doubled back and returned  it since the earrings are waaayy cuter. When I got back in I was checking my inbox and as promised I had received the  contact information of the creator of the covet worthy jewelry. Her nane is Noelani and she’s based in Hawaii. She is the owner of Noelani Designs Shop. Each piece of her jewelry is a masterpiece. I mean really they are “Oprah’s Favorite Things”  fabulous. If Oprah ever gives them out a big smack-down would break out on her show, because no-one wants “just one”. Obsession is the only word I have to describe my emotions after seeing the Noelani Designs collection. You can purchase her jewelry directly here. See below  the beautiful Noelani’s Bio as well as a sneak peek into her lovely online store. Noelani also has a very nice blog on her website as well. It’s called Noelani Love’s Blog.  Here is the link to her blog, right here. And a very special thanks to Ms. Fabulosity aka my newest fabu “friend in the head”. It was a pleasure meeting you. You have an impeccable sense of style and a great personality. It was very refreshing to find someone that genuinely supports and promotes her friend’s interests like that. Kudos! She was sooo proud a Noelani, and I’m pretty sure that Noelani is proud of her as well. Because Ms.Fabulous, –Okay her name is really Sherrin Bernstein and she has a lot of awesome projects of her own. She is the founder of  Touch Fitness Informative Bodywork and Attract Essentials. Guess what she has another highly artistic friend. Unbelievable, is Sherrin some kinda real life muse or something.  So check out her other very talented friend Lauran Childs. Click on the link to her website here. Lauran’s paintings are stunning. Her art work is my second newest obsession and it’s probably gonna be yours too!

Peacock Nouveau

Art Nouveau Peacock Mirror

 

My obsession with all things Art Nouveau is the likely culprit behind my love of peacocks. From the 1880’s to the 1901’s, Art Nouvveau was an attempt to redefine the meaning and nature of art (making the duty of art not to overlook any everyday object, no matter how utilitarian it might be). The result was a merging of fact and fiction, overlayed with impeccable attention to detail.

Art Nouveau Peacock Maiden Ring

 

Jewelry of the Art Nouveau period revitalized the jeweler’s art, with nature as the principal source of inspiration, complemented by new levels of virtuosity in enameling and the introduction of new materials, such as opals and semi-precious stones. Principal subjects were lavish birds and flowers, insects and polyformic femme fatale. But, it’s the peacock that keeps my coming back for more.

Luck Be a Ladybug

If there was ever a bug that didn’t send my hands into a heightened state of panic, it would have to be the ladybug. In the springtime, they devote themselves to several days of eating and frenzied mating (the females sometimes feeding and breeding at the same time) only to die from exhaustion. Not until after they lay their eggs, of course (which would totally defeat the purpose of crazed sexual encounters). Who knew these delicate creatures were such little sluts?

Ladybug Watch by Zadora

Funny thing is, the ladybug got it’s name from it’s divine association with the Virgin Mary. During the Middle Ages, when swarms of insects were destroying entire crops, the farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help. Soon thereafter the Ladybugs came, devouring the plant-destroying pests and saving the crops. The farmers called these beautiful insects “The Beetles of Our Lady,” and over time, they eventually became known as Ladybugs.

Currently Obsessed With: Claw Couture

Victorian “Raj Era” Tiger Claw Earrings circa 1880

 

Contrary to popular belief, Crocodile Dundee did not usher in the “claw as jewelry” trend. Tiger claw jewelry came into vogue with the British colonization of India from 1858 to 1947. This period, known as the British Raj (Hindi for ‘rule’), was a time when clever [scumbag] entrepreneurs created a market which catered to the tastes of souvenir collecting British Victorians. This style of jewelry, now referred to as “Raj” died out in the early 1900’s (and with it thousands of unsuspecting lions, tigers, and a myriad of other clawed creatures).

The claw is now experiencing a resurgence in popularity, with designers pushing the aesthetic of sophisticated savagery into uncharted territory. Thankfully, no animals were harmed in the making of these new pieces. (For those of you partial to birds, click here for last month’s bird claw feature.)

Haute Joallierie: PIAGET Limelight Watches via [Luxist]

Piaget Limelight Twice Reversible Diamond Watches


Sort of like getting two expensive watches for the price of one very expensive watch right? No, not quite, but you do get a “day” and “night” side for both the evening and daytime character of the timepiece. Piaget always like to play around with luxury designs when it comes to the Limelight series. Not being particularly en vogue right now among women’s watches, I found it interesting for them to release a reversible watch. The timepiece has two complete dials, each with its own Piaget 56P quartz movement that is independently adjustable. Theoretically you have a watch with two timezones as well.

The watch case is in 18k white gold with a “hidden” time adjuster for each movement. There are three versions of the watch. Two with a black satin strap, and the cream of the crop model with the white gold and diamonds chains (six vertical ones that connect on each of the two ends) bracelet (total of 680 brilliant cut diamonds for this Haute Joaillerie version of the Limelight Twice watch). Both dials are off-centered and about as easy to read and Piaget could have made them (meaning bring you phone as a back up clock). The dauphine hands help though while looking stately, and the “night” side with the Roman numerals is probably the easier to read, but both sides quite pretty to look at. This watch just might be the cure for that “I can’t spend big during the recession” problem you’ve been having lately. It is about now during mention of possible economic upswings after a long recession when big spenders get tired of not spending cause it was politically incorrect to do so.
