Ladybug Jewelry

I was just finishing a review of some new ladybug themed jewelry by Cartier, and was somewhat bored and dissappointed.     Too often these big jewelry houses play it safe — a few elements of high style and blah.

So, I took to the internet, met up with one of my closest friends GOOGLE, and tried to see if I could find anything that was more exciting.

Ladybugs are a big category in jewelry themes.   Ladybugs are supposed to bring good luck.   If a ladybug lands on you, you can make a wish, and the wish supposedly will come true.

A wide selection of ladybug jewelry, even ladybug wallpaper for your computer.

Nothing here necessarily with a jewelry design edge that I’m looking for, but lots of beautiful pieces, and different ladybug poses.

If you wanted to take the theme – LADYBUG – and create pieces of jewelry that might be worn at a President’s State Dinner, or at the Academy Awards, or to enhance a Couture Runway Show, or to make a power statement for a woman management executive, what might the ladybug look like?     How would you start?   Where would you begin?  

Could you go too far — distorting the cherub-like, wishing-well feeling of the simple ladybug?

Since I wrote the original blog about ladybugs, I was introduced to the lampwork of Margaret Zinser.     She has a series with beetles that I think might meet more contemporary design expectations.
