All Things Are Beautiful

I was taking a weekend away recently and our hotel had a lovely visitor. It was a Luna Moth that decided to come in to the hotel to visit and perch herself on the lobby wall. It was quite unusual since they normally only come out at night. Before the hotel staff shooed him away, I snapped these photos with my iPhone.

Can you imagine recreating this stunning work of art with translucent jade for the wings and amethyst and citrines around the head?

About Russell Trusso

"Russell is a true trendsetter in the art of fine jewelry," says Nancy McCann, senior vice president of marketing and public relations for Forest City Enterprises and Trusso fan. "When you own a piece of his collection, you join the likes of Madame Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Oprah Winfrey, women of power and dignity who have been inspired by his work and breathtaking craftsmanship." But making headlines isn't unusual for Trusso. In the 1990s, he left his post as chief of anesthesiology at St. Luke's Hospital to launch a successful fashion career, creating sumptuous gowns for socialites that were sold next to the likes of Oscar de la Renta. He then turned his attention to jewelry design, melding the scientific, meticulous part of his mind with the artistry and creativity in his soul. His jewelry was soon snapped up by Gump's, and the celebrities who shop there. He was featured on "The Early Show" with Bryant Gumbel. Bette Midler is a longtime fan. So is Winfrey, whose magazine stylists borrowed a pair of earrings for a photo shoot, then called later to see if she could buy them.
