Some of my favorite Sneak Peeks are the homes of jewelry designers. Whether it be a vintage sign, brass hardware or a piece of fine art, each designer’s unique eye for detail, color and texture is revealed through the pieces they display around their home. So today we decided to go through our archives of jewelry designers’ homes and showcase 13 of our favorites. From modern lofts in Los Angeles to traditional houses in New Orleans, the spaces here really highlight the way each designer pays attention to detail not just in their work, but in their homes. Keep your eyes peeled for the “memory wall” in Iwona Ludyga’s home- we love the way she brings jewelry store-style displays home to highlight her favorite souvenirs, artwork and collectables. –Shannon
