Art and Soul Beads
The lavish accessories indigenous to Art & Soul Beads drip with Swarovski crystals, Venetian glass, pearls, and whatever other gem designer Emily Kaniasty deems worthy of her jewelry. With her baubles, she strives to fuse traditional with trendy. She drew inspiration from gazing at her mother’s Swarovski collection as a child to design the Vanessa Loves Bibs necklace. Its tribal bib design and embellishments of yellow crystals exemplify Emily’s playfulness. Many of her pieces incorporate bold colors and chunky beads, much like the curtains that separated 1979 from 1980. Such a distinct aesthetic vision yearns to be shared, and Emily obliges at jewelry-making classes held throughout the week.
