In the post, Robyn writes:
Art Deco has gone ethnic. Or has ethnic has gone art deco?! Either way, jewelry trends have been taking off this season with major influences from both parties. The geometric patterns, bold shapes, and glitz of deco have melded with the handwoven, dyed, and rustic chic of ethnic. This jewelry is all about being chunky and edgy and still sleek and modern.— Robyn Moreno
