Chelsea Taylor, the sterling silver and Swarovski™ crystal jewelry line recognized for its radiant and luminous hues introduces their Semi-Precious Spring 2011 line grouping along with an ‘80s influenced Dynasty Collection.
Chelsea Taylor founder and designer, Drew Shapiro, aspired to create a line stemming from his everyday inspirations of travels and journeys, contemporary art and sculptures in passing, along with fashions and colors taken straight from the runway of past shows attended. Three years later, Chelsea Taylor continues to flourish within the industry as the women who tout the fabulous pieces love that each earring, ring and necklace is so definitive towards their own individuality.
The Chelsea Taylor brand houses three different collections, that of the Classics, Semi-Precious Stones and Dynasty, which reflect upcoming Spring 2011 trends featuring ‘70s and ‘80s glamour, animal prints, furs and leathers along with colors that are uplifting, energizing and exciting.
Their Classics boast beaming colors in over nineteen shades consisting of purples, pinks, yellows, blues and enamels intertwined with crystals as the everyday necklace or earring piece. The Semi-Precious Stones- feature bold crystallized cocktail rings and brooches, a magnificent accompaniment to the “little black dress.” The popular Dynasty holds ‘80s inspired, ultra-glam dazzling pieces illuminating turquoises, blues, greens and mixed gold and silvers. Depending on crystals, prices range from $50 - $2,000.
Being in the jewelry business for over twenty years, Drew Shapiro mastered his craft through various apprenticeships. Starting out, he worked exclusively with sterling silver, but always felt he wanted to reach more of a woman’s personality to make them feel good, with more eclectic styles. Never understanding why jewelry could never follow the same trends as apparel, Drew set out creating Chelsea Taylor with strong patterns and bold colors in mind; similar to how designers go about making their clothing. Shapiro wanted his jewelry to be on point with what was considered trendy, but coinciding with what his customers would actually want to wear. This was just the start for Chelsea Taylor, as the line continues to grow with sunglasses, watches, interchangeable belts, handbags, shoes and more.
