I love how architect and jewelry designer Carla Smiley of Orno makes the most beautiful, eye catching jewelry out of exotic woods. Each piece of jewelry is hand cut from a simple plank of wood (black walnut, mahogany, zebrawood are some of the woods she has worked with) and then carefully hand sanded and varnished. The result...simple yet stunning earrings and necklaces that make a bold statement and show her amazing craftsmanship. Wear a pair of these earrings, and let your other accessories call it a night.
