Family Jewels

The luxurious little jewelery bag, by Bobbye Powers, is available through Installations Antiques.

Meeting the designer of something you have and love is a pleasure that makes the daily use of said item all the more intimate. The other evening I had the privilege of meeting Bobbye Powers, the designer of the above jewelry bag. Inside the perimeter of this little drawstring number are individual compartments that cradle a piece of jewelry, keeping each from injuring another.

During conversation, Bobbye and I found that we both love fine sewing, a discovery which led to her showing me a line of jewelry bags that she designs and markets. Well, I could not resist, though it was difficult choosing just one from all the beautiful color and fabric combinations. I finally settled on the wine moire with a lining of pale floral chintz.

Now I can tuck away my traveling jewels and be off!

More jewels: Designer Bobbye Powers is the mother of Becki van der Oord, owner of Installations Antiques. I shall treasure the memory of the wonderful conversation we shared as well as her beautiful designs.
