Nov. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- Kirsten creates gorgeous Swarovski crystal jewelry. Sara works in rich suede. These two unique artists found a common vision for beautiful jewelry. Shoemaker Sara McIntosh dreamed up a collaboration with jeweler Kirsten Goede. So they got to work creating stunning suede jewelry accented with Swarovski crystals.

Kirsten's piece is a unique friendship bracelet. Plush suede is striped with rows of sparkly crystals in many color combinations. This is a perfect bracelet for stacking with other bracelets for an arm candy look or worn alone as a standout wrist decoration.

Sara's piece is a dramatic choker with long suede fringe. The fringe is accentuated with crystals to add selective bling. The look is youthful, stylish and fashion-forward.
