A few years ago, I discovered the jewelry of an amazing designer, Bea Valdes and I posted about the Bea Valdes line available at Couture Lab. We also shared her with the readers of our sister site, The Capitol Fashionista, in this post.
I fell hard.
So imagine my surprise to walk into one of the showrooms during Bridal Market to find the Bea Valdes line (her sister is her rep) right in my face. I was moved. It was good to know that her pieces are as incredibly beautiful in person as the jewelry appeared in those lovely photographs. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. I wanted to take home everything. I made sure to tell her sister that I was her number one fan.
Here are some of the pieces that were on display (including a waistcoat that I would love to have in my closet). You can see her entire collection on Couture Lab or on her web site. You will be able to not only view her beautiful jewelry but her amazing evening bags, waistcoats, and belts.
