|Cinderella in Venice After meetings in Venice all afternoon, I hopped a water bus bound for Lido. Room service at the Hotel Des Baines sounded like a brilliant idea. A nice filet and maybe a walk on the beach. On my way into the boat, I passed a stunning Italian beauty who was stepping off. She tripped and fell into my arms, turned three shades of red and quietly shuffled off with a polite Grazie. Then, I caught flashes of sparkle out of the corner of my eye. It was her pendant, chain and earrings set. But orphaned on the floor in front of me was one of her earrings. I picked it up and took a seat. A vivid violet amethyst square set in gold-finished flourish with a gorgeous golden orb. This was the kind of earring that a woman will miss. But its lovely owner was long gone. So we created our own version of the mystery amethyst set. And while I havent yet figured out the secret to creating jewelry that never gets lost, I can do my best to make them unforgettable.
