    There are a whole lot of eye-catching things floating around L.A.’s fashion scene that have our tails wagging of late, and local jewelry designers are certainly contributing to a large portion of that. Every time we spot one of the accessory industry's elite at an event, they’re bedecked in pieces so posh it’s enough to spark an Entrapment-style heist!
