“For my jewelry piece I was inspired by the leather trend, that I designed for Fall trends in addition to Michaels large selection of jewelry. Leather has presented itself to be a key item this Fall. Its edgy, it's sleek and most of all it's hot! Therefore, I have designed a jewelry piece that incorporates these elements, accentuates drama, and embodies delicacy and fun.”
