Who knew that swiss cheese could be luxe? Nantucket-based jewelry designer Jessica Hicks did. She allowed her husband to name her Lorraine jewelry line after Lorraine swiss cheese, because all the piercing and holes in her pieces reminded him of it.
Her actual jewelry inspiration lies outside the realm of cheese; rather, she finds solace in the shape of a leaf or the outline of a giraffe print. She is, however, fascinated by holes, and loves the fact that you can see through her jewelry. There must be something to that notion, because Jessica has garnered herself fans in SJP, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria...and me too!
Jessica Hicks jewelry runs $80-$800 and is available at JessJewels.com.
