One of the great things about living in New York is you can run into people in unexpected places. Upon occasion I see jewelry designer Jill Platner in Washington Square Park when she is finishing up a run with her dog Mai Mai. Dressed as casually as can be for her workout, she always awes me with her jewels. Bedecked in bracelets, rings and at least one of her handmade sterling silver pieces like this necklace, she really shines.
