I was excited last fall when my friend, Adel Chefridi, the amazingly talented jeweler, asked me to do a press portrait of him. I’ve been secretly coveting so many of his pieces since I got to peruse his collection for an article I wrote and photographed a couple years ago. We decided to do a trade. He got several handsome head shots
and I got to sit down with Adel’s amazingly intuitive wife, Corinne, to go through the collection again. She helped me choose these hammered white gold with diamond studs. (I’m even almost as in love with the presentation they came in!)
P.S. This is the photo of Adel’s jewels that ran with the piece in 2008:
That’s Kerin Brooks Smith as the model with Corinne as the photo stylist. Talk about fun!
