I told you around Valentine’s Day that one of interior designer Heather Asbury’s “Gems of India” bracelets hit my wish list. Today, I had the opportunity to sit down with Asbury and see her designs in person, and I am totally, full throttle, over-the-moon smitten with her stunning jewels, which she designs over here, using materials from India, Africa, and Turkey, and are assembled in India and Dallas. They’re truly even more beautiful up close. It doesn’t hurt that Asbury is a gem herself. She’ll even make house calls to talk about customizing pieces like her horn cuffs (which are sourced from animal materials that are naturally shed). And each piece is handcrafted–check out these ornate details. Relatively speaking, her pieces are affordable compared to the fashion market, but they still run in the thousands, so expect an investment piece that can be a future family heirloom. (Surely, my future children will want that ring below.)
