Fashion inspired by art, art inspired by nature. Whichever way it goes, it’s great. I guess you could say that my obsession with Taffin has reached another level. James Claude Taffin de Givenchy is a French born, New York-based jewelry designer and a descendant of the Givenchy fashion house. His jewelry company, Taffin, blows my mind. Each piece he designs is usually one of a kind and many of them are auctioned off. Taffin is currently the creative director for Sotheby’s. I love this guy. Pictured below is his stunning ceramic tree brooch with pear shaped diamonds.

I cannot get over how ridiculously talented people are, how they envision something so beautiful in their mind and manage to create it seamlessly with their hands. The striking resemblance of the Taffin tree to Georgia O’Keeffe’s painting below is amazing. Maybe they’ve both taken trips to Lake George? ;)
