When it comes to 4th of July ensembles, the one accessory Miami gals need to keep it trendy and show their red, white and blue pride is celeb favorite: the Maya Brenner State necklace. It’s the one Katy Perry wore in her Teenage Dream video and Eva Longoria loves to don to show her Texan pride. For us Miami gals, there’s a Florida pendant which comes in sterling silver or yellow gold with a choice of a diamond right on the 305. How adorable is that? What I love about the necklace since I got mine is that it goes with my entire wardrobe and it’s dainty, but still statement making which every fashionista wants. It’s absolutely the perfect investment piece since it’s so versatile. You can literally go bumming it at the beach in a bikini or get suited up to watch fireworks at a fancy bash in it. The Florida State necklace starts at $130 up to $300, but you can get 25 percent off starting this Friday July 1st. Just make sure you add Maya Brenner Designs on FB or her Twitter for the discount 411.
I chatted with Brenner whose baubles have been featured on Sex and the City and several publications like People and Seventeen. (FYI she’s the head designer at Stella & Dot too). We talked designing, what she likes about Miami and what’s next for the celebrity jeweler. Check out the pics and Q&A.
A PERFECT PENISULA: Loving my Maya Brenner State necklace.
STATEMENT MAKING: This necklace is light weight, dainty, but statement making.
Why did you decide to create the State collection and which one did you design first? Maya Brenner: “The first one I made was California. I’m from northern California and I had been living in NY and then I moved to LA. When I moved back I wanted to embrace where I was from.”
Why do you think people and celebrities love the collection? MB “I think it’s personalized and people are very connected to where their home is.”
THE PERFECT GIFT: I just realized this would make the perfect gift for my sister who loves Miami, but moved to New York recently.
What do you like about Miami? “I love Miami.There’s great shopping, food and the weather. I took a Carnival Cruise. I did it with my boyfriend who is now my husband. I remember going to BED when it was the “in” spot.”
What are you currently working on? MB: “What do you think about donning the State piece for the 4th of July? MB:
IRRESTIBLE: The State collection is one of Brenner’s best selling and celebs and fashionistas all over find it irresistible.
