No longer simply the backdrop of a Woody Allen movie, we're letting the colors of the city park in fall take center stage. Woven fabric in shades of brown, cream, and tomato red cover a shaped wood core in wonderfully rustic Tinalak beads from the Philippines. Strung together with gilt brass from India, the textural and visual variance is as beautiful as respite from the city shuffle. A vintage etched goldtone lotus-like flower brooch (love the costume pearl center) by Emmons sits prettily at the side, reminding us that beauty grows in unexpected places. A vintage etched goldtone clasp completes the 17.5” scene-stealer at back.
