Hurricane Irene sent us on a detour while on our way back home to NYC from Jackson. Luckily, we were in driving distance to one of my favorite vacation spots -Aspen! Our unexpected extended holiday enabled me to visit Aspen’s Saturday street market where Bijou Aspen caught my eye. The jewelry line designed by an adorable couple, Taylor DeWind and Adam Tessier, features agates, crystals and pearls on shredded leather pieces. Here is a sampling of their work. I made it home with a bracelet that I am sure to wear almost everyday!
