The Lizzie Fortunato Spring 2012 Collection is Exotic and Edgy

There is no look that translates itself from season to season more effortlessly than tribal, and the Lizzie Fortunato Spring 2012 jewelry collection perfectly demonstrates how easy the pieces are to wear. From the studded jewels mixed with autumn-hued beads to the use of wood in the collection, the designer was influenced by "mid-century American architecture," as were design houses Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam, according to Fashionologie.

Fortunato's favorite pieces from the collection are "the result of her collaboration with Arthur Kemelman, a woodworker from Israel who hand-carved a necklace and bracelet and then painted them with gold leaf." She says, "Each piece of wood is unique...and the result is exquisite."
