Seattle Style News: Jeweler Gina Pankowski in W Magazine

January Jones gets a little bit of Seattle around her neck.

Ignore the hair, the shoes, and the long, long legs. Check out the necklace; it’s a piece by Seattle designer Gina Pankowski.

Oh, Seattle, you’ve done it again. And this time I didn’t even notice.

Last week when I mentioned that W magazine was singling out one of Julep’s ocean-colored polishes, I was kind of missing the bigger news.

In the she-glam main feature wherein January Jones trades Mad Men for something like Mad Max, the fiercest accessory in the spread came from a Seattle designer, Gina Pankowski of Lattis Design. A friend of the jeweler’s knew Lori Goldstein, the stylist on the shoot, so she had seen Pankowski’s work took a liking to this particular piece.

Pankowski works primarily in 18- and 22-karat gold, and her styles are rarely quiet or demure. They’re more like cyclone fences for your wrists.

Looking to best the last few Halloweens’ Mad Men getups? You could go as Jones in W; Lattis Design pieces are sold locally at the Bellevue Art Museum Store.
