Former Accessories Magazine Fashion Director Pens Jewelry Memoir

In What's New, Industry News by Accessories Staff

New York–You’ll never look at your jewelry collection the same way again after reading the charming memoir My Charmed Life, Rocky Romances, Precious Family Connections and Searching for a Band of Goldby jewelry writer/designer/consultant and former Accessories Magazine fashion director Beth Bernstein.

The witty paperback chronicles Bernstein’s colorful life as told through her jewelry keepsakes—from her deceased mother’s diamond “engagement watch” to a faux tiara crafted by her niece to the claddagh ring from a former Irish boyfriend.

And during the roller coaster of transient loves, laughs and heartbreak, all the jewelry remains by Bernstein’s side to this day, each piece with its own tale to tell.

Author (and former Accessories Magazine Fashion Director) Beth Bernstein

“All of the precious keepsakes in my jewelry box reveal part of my history: not just material possessions but sparkling memories that link together the family, friends and romances that inspired me to write my first book and continue to be the real gems of my life,” says Bernstein. “I hope that My Charmed Life will appeal to all women who have fallen in love, felt loss, learned to start over again and have been transformed by the enchanting power of jewelry.”

The author is also holding readings from My Charmed Life at jewelry stores, where she will be selling her books and offering styling and jewelry advice. Some stores will also hold raffles for items of jewelry.
