Beautiful And Adaptable: Nan Fusco Jewelry
Nan Fusco jewelry takes statement jewelry to the next level. Her beautiful, unique line, crafted in her Laguna Beach studio, blends nature’s tones with elegant creativity.
Fusco’s whimsical, artsy style pairs unconventional components, like woolly mammoth ivory, Roman glass, semi-precious stones and pavé diamonds. Her collection uses a unique no-clasp design; opting rather for loops, ties, hooks and pulleys to bring closure and transformation — Fusco’s pieces can be worn as many as eight different ways.
Looks vary from monochromatic to bold and variegated. Most all styles can be worn with everything from couture to jeans and a tee. “Young fashionistas in their 20′s, as well as seasoned shoppers in their 50’s, have all purchased the pieces,” she says.
You can find the line at select high-end boutiques in Laguna Beach, Newport Beach or online. Prices for the pieces range widely in the collection, starting at $180 for a woven chain style to $3,200 for pavé diamonds and kasumi pearl necklaces. For pricing, it best to call her directly at (949) 281-7400.
Finally, for seasonal style, Fusco suggests her coral earrings right now, which have a festive pop of color and a sexy splash of long, silver chains. Or you can’t go wrong with her current bestseller: the Quattro. It’s four pieces in one: a lariat, choker, traditional necklace and triple wrap fringe bracelet and combines woven sterling, matte gold, vintage silver with gems on the fringes (retail price: $385).
So get what you want this year. Or gift with transitional style.
