While researching eco-friendly fashion, I was happily reintroduced to A Peace Treaty. The jewelry line was founded in 2008 by Farah Malik and Dana Arbib over a shared love of fashion design and the desire to uplift age-old craftsmanship.
True to their mission, the women have created relationships with workshops across 10 countries where they produce the line's signature bold jewelry, scarves and caftans in a way that is true to the origins of each product.
While shopping the line, I fell in love with the white agate they've paired with gold. The white really pops against the gold, making the wearer feel like a modern day Cleopatra. I immediately imagined pairing the pieces with a bright Bettie shirt, comfortable jeans and sensible shoes and scouring bazaars and markets looking for treasure in far flung locations.
A bit of a romantic notion, I know.
Like any well selected accessories, the pieces work easily for "real life", meaning the weekday and beyond. I'd keep the same Bettie shirt but pair it with a white leather skirt and some subtly fabulous shoes... striped snakeskin, please!
The jewels add a bit of exotic glamour without being gaudy or too costumey. A perfect addition to any well-heeled wardrobe.
