Clients Jessica Ricci Jewelry and Sweetslips Participate in the October 2010 Holiday Lookbook Event
Clients Jessica Ricci Jewelry and Sweetslips participated in the October 2010 Holiday Lookbook event in New York City hosted by Jill Martin, TV correspondent on The Today Show, The Insider and more. The Holiday Lookbook is a product to press gift fair held twice a year where the media can stop by and explore the newest and most notable products of the season. This press review is an exclusive opportunity for select brands to present their new products and services to invited media outlets, in time for holiday gift guide coverage as well as opportunities for timely on-air segments. About Jessica Ricci Jewelry Jessica Ricci finds objects with past lives and translates them into jewelry. She draws upon her own experience as a journalist, English teacher, former ex-pat, international volunteer, and jewelry designer to create hand-crafted pieces that are anchored in symbolism, history and sentimentality. A portion of proceeds from various collections goes to Nest, an organization which provides micro-finance loans for women in third world countries.
• Travel Jewelry: Jessica Ricci’s travel collections are created from discarded objects unearthed in the markets, bazaars and out-of-the-way destinations from Paris to Mumbai and Kathmandu to Buenos Aires. Jessica often volunteers in the country she visits for inspiration.
• Raw Jewelry: Jewelry to reflect the myths, magic and mysteries attributed to healing stones. The gems are natural and untreated to highlight their earthy origins. Raw also includes fauna to capture the sense of a time in a place, as much as that is possible, anyway.

Sweetslips is truly an idea and company born of necessity. Educated as an architect its founder, Cinder Trout, stumbled (literally) onto the idea in South Beach Miami’s lively night scene in 2009. Their yummy little street safe slippers are the perfect solution to those not-so-blissful high heel moments. You don’t have to choose between looking fabulous and being comfortable…Sweetslips lets you have both! Keep your feet happy and your look classy with Sweetslips foldable ballet flats you can stash in even the smallest of clutches for those times when your tootsies need a little extra TLC.
