In celebration of Israel’s 70th anniversary, Mingei International Museum, in collaboration with the House of Israel and its curator Smadar Samson mounted a magnificent exhibition of Israeli craft and design. Beautifully laid out and filled with an expansive range of creations the show presented art objects from the late 19th century through the present, including work by Israel’s most visible and interesting designers working today such as Dori Csengeri.
From the show’s catalogue:
Epic style captures Dori Csengeri Imagination, and her Camelot haute couture necklace is a reminiscent of medieval gowns, fierce battle gear and dragons’ scales. With its immaculate embellishments and its hand-stitched linen embossed with gold leaf, the necklace strives to find as Csengeri puts it, the “balance between timelessness and timeliness”.

Keep It Professional
Looking polished doesn’t have to be boring. Wear a button-up blouse and add a statement necklace around the collar. It’s a great way to spice up an outfit while still keeping a professional look.
Taking An Outfit From Drab To Fab Wearing statement necklaces can enhance your wardrobe and transform your outfits. Pairing a dark winter jacket with a glitzy statement necklace can do wonders, and easily transition your outfit from day to night.
Dress It Up
Pair the statement necklace with a sleek top, an elegant skirt and little to no jewelry. Your statement necklace should actually have the chance to make a statement… So, let your necklace do the talking by keeping a ‘minimalist chic’ look for the rest of the outfit.
Or Dress It Down… If you’re a sweater and jeans kind of gal, go ahead and wear your skinny jeans and oversized sweater –just top your outfit off with a standout necklace.
Every bride wants to look stylish and feel special on her wedding day. There are quite a few ways to achieve a timeless chic look. Dori’s fab bridal collection inspired our ‘My Day’ team to go out and photo-shoot a story that illustrates how to incorporate a statement piece of jewelry into a winning bridal style.
If you want to dial up the wow factor with a unique statement jewelry piece, here are some tips:
* The focus should be on the jewelry piece. We suggest choosing relatively plain dress & shoes that don’t boast too many details. * A statement necklace normally looks best with a strapless wedding gown.
* It’s better to bring the jewelry piece to your first appointment with the hair stylist, so he/she can experiment with different looks that will complement the bridal statement piece.
* We suggest natural wedding makeup with delicate eye shadows.
Yes, Meryl, we agree: Florals for spring isn’t anything new. But, they are a fashion staple and we can’t get enough of them!
This season, we see gardens growing and blooming at the stores with a mixture of happy colors and painterly like feeling. We just can’t resist these juicy, fragrant colors and invite vivid floral designs to take over our closet and freshen up our look…
