A few of Lizzie's personal pics from the shoot last week. Her collection was inspired by the Kaufmann Desert House, designed by architect Richard Neutra in 1946 and located at the edge of the desert in Palm Springs, California. Read more about the collection and her inspiration at Lizzie Fortunato Jewels.
In addition to the floral headpiece that Lizzie and I collaborated on, I also contributed and designed these contained "Desert Scapes" (far left).The materials and composition are inspired by desert landscape surrounding the Kaufmann House. The glass box with its clean lines and sharp edges that contains as well as frames the desert scene is a nod to the home's architecture, a design itself intended to emphasize the connection with the desert landscape.
