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.
