All Out of Quartz
WHO: Jeweler Amanda Hagerman
WHY: You're always a stone's throw from disaster. Which is totally unlike former high-school art teacher and current full-time brilliant artiste Amanda Hagerman. The Pennsylvania native uses nature as her inspiration to craft insanely beautiful works of striking wearable art perfect for every occasion. My favorites: the stunning Solar Quartz Slice earrings, dazzling Crystal Hollow Cuff, and show-stopping Rosette Cluster Necklace. Each one is lovingly shipped inside a hand-printed muslin pouch. Which makes them perfect for when you're going that extra mile.
