At her store in the pulsing center of downtown Chicago, designer Nakamol focuses on transforming simple stones into works of art, along with an emphasis on intricate and detailed metalwork, leather, pearls and silk. The result? Pieces with an earthy edge and rustic feeling, yet refined in their craftsmanship and fine detailing. Particularly eye-catching is a collection of beaded wrap bracelets, available in a rainbow of different hues. Nakamol employs a staff of over 300 artisans to aid in the creation of this handcrafted line, which has a long list of celebrity fans, including Rachel Ray, Hayden Panettiere and Queen Latifah, all of whom have been spotted sporting pieces from the collection.
