romancing the stone

February 7, 2012

The natural beauty they found on their world travels has been a source of inspiration to Avril and Cindy Joffe. They are the mother-daughter design team behind Avindy jewelry.

To celebrate their Atlanta company’s 10th anniversary this year, the self-taught jewelry designers were inspired by scenery closer to home — at the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area, east of downtown Atlanta.

Their versatile “Arabia Mountain” collection ($80 to $300) includes an unexpected mix of grey labradorite with aquamarine, opals, teal, mystic topaz and antiqued sterling silver.

But Avindy’s signature style, as longtime fans know, is it penchant for mixing and layering its metals and gemstones for a vintage yet modern look.

The new wrap bracelets ($95 to $130) can be worn as necklaces and come in a range of colors.

For Valentine’s Day or any other red-letter day, consider the silver letter-stamped necklaces ($170 to $600) or the heart-shaped padlock ($198) with “Love + Be Loved” on the back. It is pictured below.

For the best selection of Avindy’s hand-crafted jewelry in the greater Atlanta area, visit Turning Leaf Wood Art, 651 E. Main. St., in Blue Ridge.
