INTRODUCING Jennifer Meyer
CLAIM TO FAME: A former fashion publicist turned jewelry designer SIGNATURE STYLE: A single leaf and delicate diamond, turquoise pieces
Talk about turning over a new leaf. Last June, with no formal training in jewelry design, Jennifer Meyer left her job in fashion PR to create her own line. Only five months later her first piece, a single leaf pendant, is dangling from some pretty famous necks. "It's the ultimate!" says L.A.-based Meyer, 28, of seeing Jennifer Aniston wearing her jewelry on camera—in her upcoming film The Break Up—and off. Kate Hudson and Kirsten Dunst are also fans. "How much better do you get? It feels good when people like what you do," she says. Inspired in her new career by her grandmother, who taught art and designed jewelry, Meyer says, "I know how I feel when I put on a beautiful piece and I wanted to give people that."
Gold leaf earrings, $1,800 (left), gold rings, $125 each (right), turquoise leaf necklace, $2,250. "All my pieces are 18k gold because I like to feel the weight of something substantial." Kaviar and Kind, 310-659-8857.
I really LOVE my...
BOTTEGA VENETA BAG. We can always count on Jennifer Aniston to deliver simple, chic looks that are fabulous, but somehow Everygirl. During a recent jaunt to N.Y.C. to promote her film Derailed, the actress toted her trusty, year-old Bottega instead of swapping "It" bags daily. Part of Aniston's appeal is her accessibility—the bag's was less so at $1,950.
