Lori Weitzner launches her own jewelry line

Passementerie—a catch-all name for the tassels, trim, fringe and pom-poms that dress up drapes and upholstery—is akin to jewelry for the home. So it wasn’t a stretch when New York textile and wall-covering designer Lori Weitzner, who creates passementerie for Samuel & Sons, decided to create a line of jewelry and accessories under her eponymous brand.

“I’ve always loved jewelry. Even as a little girl, I’d go into my mother’s jewelry box and try on all her pieces,” says Weitzner. “I thought, ‘If I can design it for the home, why not for people?’”

Launched in December, her collection features necklaces fashioned from gossamer metallic strands, suede bracelets encrusted with shimmery baubles and eye-catching clutches embroidered with tiny glass beads.

“It’s all very textile-infused, with techniques like beading, embroidery and special-stitching,” explains Weitzner. Made by hand in India and the Philippines, the pieces are priced between $95 and $305 each.

In style, they run the gamut from romantic to edgy. “We wanted both older and younger people to enjoy the collection, so we were determined to find that balance,” Weitzner reflects. “I want all wearers to feel beautiful—and individual.” shop.loriweitzner.com
