Meet Yelena Noah

 

I remember first meeting Yelena very well. She's just that kind of person. When you meet somebody new, usually certain parts of that persons character, abilities or history stand out and compose the small talk that follows.

Our Pop-up neighbor in December: "Frends" - fashionable electronic accessories / enjoy 10% off (mention "Yaf Sparkle")

Monika Knutsson, the designer behind the jewelry collection Gilded Lace, was thrilled that Beyoncé chose some of her pieces to wear on stage at her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. The jewelry had come a long way from the lace’s creation in the 1920s, to becoming forgotten vintage lace at a Parisian fleamarket, and eventually ending up on the world’s most famous superstar. The LEOPOLDINE earrings have quite a story to tell.
