Jewelry designer Temple St. Clair is a Virginia Native who studied art and literature at Smith College in Florence Italy. She is most well known for her signature rock crystal amulets and use of her fine gemstones. Having spent over a decade living and studying in Europe, Temple draws her inspiration and influence from the Mediterranean basin.
Her new collection is perfect for spring and summer looks. They’re not your typical pooka shell bracelet that we pick up while on vacation. Her pieces are sophosicated and admirable. All of the material she uses she picked up herself from places all over the world. They all mean something to her and she’s sharing her expirence with you through her jewelry.
I always feel childish wearing shell like assessories but this totally changes the way I look at it now. It’s classy and not gaudy or overdone. I’m loving the beach look she’s creating.
