Houston native Elaine Turner has her eponymous accessories business in the bag. She conquered the mountain that is handbags in 2000, footwear in 2008 and now she launches baubles. (Not to mention a Southern takeover of Madison Avenue with her latest boutique that opened at the end of the year.) Bamboo is a material that Turner is quite fond of — a Palm-Beachy symbol of strength and resiliency that inspired her newly minted 12-piece collection of necklaces, bracelets, cuff and earrings rendered in 18K gold plate with black-diamond Swarovski crystals. Each is named after someone dear to the designer’s heart. My personal faves, the Kim and Caitlin bangles, are a chic addition to a white tee and jeans. The Bamboo Collection $98 to $348, at Elaine Turner.
