Last spring I had the pleasure of meeting jewelry designer Cynthia Rybakoff at Brooklyn shopping haunt Artists & Fleas. Not only is she super nice but her designs are beautiful. I bought a gorgeous sterling silver necklace with a petite shell engraved on the pendant. I am loving her new collection, Mixed Messages, that debuted at Bendel’s for Fashion’s Night Out. The gold is classic and the geometry of the pieces give them a modern edge.
