I'll admit my mother was right. I do appreciate the collection of Towle tableware she has collected for me all these years…a serving spoon for my birthday. A salad fork in my Christmas stocking. A long withstanding Southern tradition, passed down from her mother to her, and from her to my sister and I. Mother knows best!
These earrings by Charleston jewelry designer Gabrielle (Gabe) remind me of the romantic styling of traditional silverware design. The gilded framing tape has the potential to add stateliness instantly, while the gold leaf styling from Charleston fashion designer Carol Hannah's runway show makes me wish I had somewhere to go to try this look! Maybe I can get a dose of gold leaf in a more practical way by employing this nail tutorial by the Beauty Department.
