Accessorizing was first established by the earth, which decided to adorn its curvaceous, celestial body with a bright, dangly moon. Decorate your own being with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of original handcrafted jewelry at enV by Vanessa Coppes in Staten Island.
Wielding handpicked treasures from her native Dominican Republic, enV's Vanessa Coppes designs elegant jewelry pieces that accentuate natural beauty and express individuality. Embellish a bare décolleté with a simply turquoise necklace ($95), featuring a pear-shaped semiprecious stone dangling from a sterling silver chain. The string of freshwater-cultured pearls, Swarovski crystal, and silver accents of the Santos charm bracelet ($65) inspires jealousy in pirates and inadequate clams. The wristless can beautify fingers with a swirl ring ($38), in which a cyclone of copper wire draws eyes into its eerily calm center and swiftly transports them to Oz. Coppes also arranges an arsenal of stones, crystals, gold, silver, and other metals into colorful earrings, pendants, and hair accessories, all infused with sophistication and Caribbean flair.
