When I found New York-based Lizzie Fortunato on the Urban Outfitters website as a featured jewelry designer, not only was I so excited, but I took a quick trip down memory lane....An old roommate and dear friend used to wear a chunky chain necklace that her former boyfriend had given to her. It was designed and handcrafted by his sister, Lizzie. We loved that necklace and considered it a sweet gesture. But who would have thought that that same gesture would grace the pages of Elle, Vogue, and The Cut?! I love her newest designs for UO, they channel the glamourous indian hippie in me.
