We’ve been a fan of local jewelry designer, Amanda Sterett since she debuted her line of stylish handmade gems in 2004. We’ve featured her in our magazine a few times along the way. It was only a matter of time before her beautiful baubles caught the eyes of national retailers such as Kate Spade and Anthropologie (word is that they will be carrying her designs soon). The Dallas designer’s “Courtney” hoop is currently featured in the current issue of InStyle magazine (as seen at left-top right). Congrats Amanda! Be sure to check out her collection locally at Melanie Gayle, The Shak, and Sussie’s.
