Wednesday, July 22, 2009 Introduces Sveda

dress boutique and are proud to introduce a new and local jewelry line exclusive, sveda (pronounced sveeda) designs.

designer Jacqueline Sveda (pictured above) has been creating one-of-a-kind pieces for the past 5 years, drawing inspiration from the "paruriers of haute couture" (makers of costume jewelry for high end fashion houses circa the 1930's). Jackie's designs are unique in that they combine different metals with vintage and antique relics-- she enjoys using brass, as well as 22k and 18k gold and sterling silver metals as a basis for her creations.

each individual design has a story to tell setting it a part from other jewelry elements. while some designs are simple and delicate, like the Wing and Diamond Charm Necklace, others are more edgy and powerful, like the African Bullet Necklace.
