Lately, we’ve been pretty hell-bent on reworking our wardrobes to make room for wispier wares. But, just as our minds begin to trickle over to spring, fall lines and lookbooks roll in and distract us. Good thing we're always game to revamp our jewelry boxes, so we consistently turn to the local bauble queen Tamar Wider of The 2 Bandits to impress us with her ever-changing arsenal of statement pieces.
