Fashion Forward: Jewelry
Proof once and for all one man's trash is another man's treasure. Before you throw away that box of junk or give away that box of clutter, take a second look. In tonight's Fashion Forward, Shireen Sandoval shows us how just about anything can become exquisite jewelry.
WSVN--Sparkling stones...Pretty pearls...This summer when it comes to bling, traditional is out and fun and funky are in.
Amy Schwartzbard from Over The Moon: "I think costume jewelry is very in."
At Over The Moon in Hollywood, they're used to selling furniture like these chandeliers... But now you can get the jewelry to match.
Amy: "We're under the chandelier that has these beautiful fabric florets with Swaroski crystals in the middle and you can wear one of the necklaces."
Talk about flower power... How about pairing this pretty pink necklace with this unique lighting fixture. These days it's not strange for home decor designers to go into the bauble business
Amy: "I think you know wonderful talented people are very versatile and they can do a lot of different things and be successful."
Jewelry designer Lisa Salzer knows a thing or two about being successful. Her latest project, turning old doorknockers and other everyday items into fine jewelry.
Lisa Salzer from Lulu Frost Jewelry & Accessories:"I think it's different because it's really made from vintage pieces which I find and they're period antiques. They're all really from these different periods victorian or edwardian or art deco or art nuvo."
Lisa's Lulu Frost collection is getting plenty of attention. She recently beat out 800 contestants in the gen art competition, which recognizes new designers. But besides antique hardware, Lisa works with old spectacles, shoe buckles, pocket watches, padlocks, even old keys.
Lisa: "That's my favorite part um I love collecting looking and sort of finding what there is to discover."
Unlock the key to my heart with this antique necklace.... we know diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but you'll be a standout in these one of a kind gems.
Lisa:"It's sort of resurrecting something that's been forgotten a long time ago but making it wearable and modern again."
If you buy any of the pieces at over the moon, part of the proceeds will go to the Make A Wish Foundation.
