Mignonne Gavigan, the New Yorkbased statement jewelry and accessories brand founded by Mignonne “Maggie” Gavigan, has partnered with Christina Bryant’s bohemian home décor label St. Frank, to create an exclusive capsule collection of luxury accessories and home goods dubbed, Mignonne Gavigan x St. Frank. Inspired by artisan crafts and culture from across the world including India, China, Nigeria, Congo, Peru and more, both Mignonne Gavigan and St. Frank have a deep appreciation for hand-crafted artistry. “We formed a bond during the early days of our brands, based on mutual admiration for unconventional materials and global design,” the founders share. “Our respect and encouragement for each others’ endeavors has resulted in a lifelong friendship and countless motivating conversations,” For their sophomore collaboration, the designers married Mignonne Gavigan’s playful, color-forward aesthetic and intricate beading with St. Frank’s bold patterns and luxury fabrics, resulting in a collection of six modern styles for your wardrobe and your home. Each piece in the capsule takes inspiration from three of St. Frank’s signature offerings: The Kuba Earrings ($150), Kuba Scarf Necklace ($595) and Kuba Alpaca Throw ($425) are new iterations of the Kuba cloth, a unique ceremonial textile featuring complex geometric designs with unexpected interruptions in the dual colored pattern. The Miao Scarf Necklace ($595) and Miao Alpaca Throw ($425) are translated from vintage Miao wedding blankets from the mountainous provenances of southern China where weaving seen as a traditional skill passed down generationally. This modern

day design features a pink and blue diamond configuration. The Yoruba Bird Earrings ($325) are translated from a beaded crown traditionally worn by Southwestern Nigeria’s Yoruba royalty.

JEWELRY

The Season To Sparkle BY JENNIFER FAUCI

jfauci@antonmediagroup.com

L

ike a new fallen snow or lights all aglow, there is no better gift that sparkles than beautiful jewelry. Brad Gross is fifth generation at HL Gross, his family’s jewelry business, located at 840 Franklin Ave., Garden City and he is gearing up for the holidays. “Although bridal is a significant aspect of our business, we also carry a big assortment of fashion jewelry,” said Gross, noting that Roberto Coin, KC designs and Shy Creations are some of the designers that the store carries. “For fashion jewelry, we do a lot of unbranded items and curate our own to give you a unique look for less price. A lot of designers you pay a premium for so in the fashion jewelry world we like to buy our own inventory and sell it under our name.” Of those special pieces, Gross stated that there are many trends this season, namely stacked bangles and rings, classic stud earrings and going back to the basics with tennis bracelets and necklaces.

14k White Gold Diamond Initial Necklace; $416

Lilac Blossoms Budding Brilliance Ring; $350 “Mixing different colors and diamonds with colored stones and stacking jewelry has become really popular,” said Gross, adding that personalized gifts are also huge for mothers and grandmothers. “A lot of younger moms today are wanting something with their kids’ initial.

The brand features trendy, funky pieces that are well priced. For those looking to buy something special for their significant other, Gross and other associates are more than happy to help. “We look for a woman’s taste if they have a history with us, we’ll look and see what we can use. If the client is taking a shot in the dark, we won’t go too fashion forward or too trendy just because people have a particular taste,” he said, making note of the fact that H.L. Gross has a two week return policy after Christmas so people can come in and make exchanges. With a majority of the inventory on the store’s website, Gross also highlighted the preowned watch department. His brother, Matt, has a vast knowledge of all watch brands including an expansive collection of high end Swiss brands that come

We build a relationship with people and when we sell an engagement ring, we hope they come back for wedding bands, anniversary bands and push gifts.”

PHOTOGRAPHY

Preserve Memories For A Lifetime With Album Envy BY ANDREA BILTON

editorial@antonmediagroup.com

I

n a digital age where most photos hibernate in virtual folders and lay dormant on social media feeds, Album Envy strives to honor your family’s captured memories with high-quality, custom photobooks handcrafted locally in Port Washington. The company offers three variations of their product that can be personalized and ordered directly from their website. Customers can select “The Photobook” starting at $36, “The Hybrid” at $49, or “The Album” at $175. Each option boasts a wide range of customization factors including size, color, binding, page number and page texture. Every photo is printed on thick, professional-grade paper to ensure longevity and bound by hand in your choice of linen or leather. The pages are constructed to lay completely flat, resulting in uninterrupted photo spreads. “I think we make it as easy as possible to create

something that translates to lifelong memory,” said company owner Keith Piccione. “Within a minute or two, you can have a book designed and ready to order. It lays it out for you, you can change it, it’s very graphical, very user-friendly, and fun. And you get great a product out of it. You just have to look at people’s eyes when they look at the book for the first time, and then you get it.” Piccione, a Long Island native who grew up in East Meadow, launched Album Envy early this year. After accumulating 30 years of experience in the photo printing industry, he has decided to channel his knowledge and expertise into a meaningful product unmatched in quality, and hopes to perpetuate the importance of honoring images offscreen. “These photobooks are gorgeous, they’re

viable long term. You go through the effort of capturing an image, why not make the effort to remember it? Honor the image. That’s the message.” As the company ships out their products in mere days, you can surprise your loved ones this holiday season with a personalized album composed of professional-grade photo prints preserving moments from memorable trips, special events, family photoshoots and more. “You take so many images, but what do you do with them? They accumulate in your phone, they accumulate on some disc someplace, or in a cloud someplace, and the

emotional impact and reason why you created them is lost over time. You forget them,” said Piccione. “Our message is: take those images, and put them in a book. A beautiful, heirloom book that you can look at and relive over and over again. Visually, it’s very powerful- to be able to look at an image, and evoke some emotion, or memory, is huge. That’s our message that we’re trying to get across, nationwide. And all of that is done in Port Washington, New York on Long Island.” If you would like to order your own Album Envy photobook just in time for the holidays or read more information about their products, visit www.albumenvy.com.

Plum: How the Sugar Plum Fairy Got Her Wings (Simon & Schuster) $17.99 With a nod to E.T.A. Hoffman’s chestnut The Nutcracker, married debut authors Sean Hayes and Scott Icenogle spin a sweet origin story about one of Hoffman’s favorite characters: The Sugar Plum Fairy. When young Plum, the tiniest, loneliest—and perhaps most picked-on—resident of Mary Fitzgerald Orphanage tries to

salvage a happy holiday for her fellow orphans, she receives some magical Christmas Eve help from a “mysterious magician” named Mr. Drosselmeyer. After gobbling up Drosselmeyer’s gift of a petit four–size Nuzzlecake, Plum is transported to the Land of Sweets where her act of selfless kindness toward a dejected King Christopher unspools a jolly denouement that includes an adoption—and a sprouting of wings. Illustrated beautifully by Robin Thompson.

Authored by Anton Media Group editor, Jennifer Fauci, A Present For You, A Present For Me details all of the wonderful things children love about winter and the Christmas holiday season.
