I am always on the hunt for talented up and coming New York based designers. Alexandra Samit, founder of Alexandra Beth Designs, has quickly become a rising star in my jewelry box. Her collection is a stunning combination of metals, soft leathers and skins, studs, delicate chains and incredible gemstones.

Her pieces range from $38.00 to $450.00. Totally doable on any budget!

I have a major fascination with druzy stones and find myself constantly searching for the perfect druzy piece to rock with my arm party. Lo and behold I found it. Alexandra Beth’s Druzy Wrap Bracelet [pictured above]. Once I saw this gorgeous bracelet I was hooked!

At 24 years old, Alexandra has accomplished so much. In October 2010, she attended an “Open See” at Henri Bendel’s. Since being plucked out of the crowd, Alexandra Beth Designs has been a featured trunk show host at both Henri Bendel and Bloomingdales flagship store on 59th street. Not only has Alexandra taken the New York jewelry scene by storm, but she has been celebrated in numerous national press outlets.

And can you believe she only just launched in Fall 2010?

Pictured above are a few of my favorite pieces:

Druzy Wrap Bracelet $138.00
Druzy Stud Earrings $118.00
Macrame Beaded Bracelet $48.00
Bib Necklace $55.00
Allayna Druzy Necklace $68.00
