Presto change-o: Lulu Frost's Lisa Salzer works her magic on antique gems
Her latest love is convertible jewelry that you can wear more than one way. A simple way to glam up your look from daytime to nighttime, it's also healthy for the wallet. Instead of investing in multiple items, you need to purchase only one.
One of Salzer's most popular pieces of convertible jewelry is the 3-in-1 headband/necklace/bracelet. A single brass chain is woven with antique silk ribbon and accented with a vintage brooch. You use it as a headpiece that's sure to, yes, turn heads! Or, try knotting it around your neck as a punchy pendant or wrapping it around your wrist to create a chunky bracelet.
Fred Segal has sold Salzer's work to notables such as Gayle King (buying for herself and Ms. Winfrey). Dynamic duo Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton are fans, as are Kim Kardashian and Robin Wright.So if you want to go more convertible than a drop-top Mercedes, you'll be glad to know that Lulu Frost jewelry is available in a variety of colors including mauve, lavender, teal and navy, and retails for $360 at Bergdorf Goodman. Alternatively, visit www.lulufrost.com to find retailers.
