mish Tworkowski loves Palm Beach. The jeweler is a sponsor of the Palm Beach Preservation Foundation and recently bought a house in town with his partner, Joseph Singer. “The whole place inspires me,” Tworkowski says. The city also sparked his latest collection of breezily elegant goods that dress up or down with ease. There are large-scale gold starfish earrings delicately limned with diamonds; simpler scallop shells with diamond-studded French hooks; a jingly charm bracelet dangling with sparkling pendants. All are meant to be mixed at a whim: “The world is so casual these days,” he says. “It’s more sophisticated not to be matchy-matchy. Modern women don’t want a full parure.” PORTRAIT, WATERCOLORS: COURTESY OF MISH NEW YORK; JEWELRY: PAMELA COOK/STUDIO D…

shell chic

shellwork can trace its roots to ancient Greece, where grottoes decorated with the stuff were constructed as shrines to the Muses; the Romans built shell-clad nymphaeums throughout their empire. Flash-forward to the Renaissance: Grottoes resurfaced, along with much else from the classical world. It’s been a series of revivals ever since, especially during the 18th century, when Europeans returning from the Grand Tour spread a rage for shellwork across the Continent. Notable examples exist at estates like Frederick the Great’s New Palace in Germany and the Château de Rambouillet in France. Modern iterations mine that oceanic allure while upping the style ante: See Sarah Ramsey and Claire Ratliff’s recent showstopping powder room for a client in Palm Beach. With a diamond pattern rendered in shells by artisan Thomas Boog, the room…
