Linda uses turquoise, ebony, diamonds, Italian-crafted 18-karat gold, and sterling silver findings in all of her pieces. While she crafts the designs, it takes a global village to assemble Hagobian's pieces, from the artisans in Italy who painstakingly make sure each graduated piece of turquoise is of the right size and color and perfectly strung, to the 42 African men and women who carve the ebony into precise shapes. As a sign of gratitude, the company donates part of the proceeds of the collection to Dogon Schulen, which builds schools in Mali, West Africa.
Sunny skies and spring brights have inspired my pick this week. There's nothing better than adding just a touch...
