Tangara bib necklace, Swarovski ($850).
A combination of white lacquer, stainless steel, crystal, and mirrored accents make up Swarovski’s Crystal Forest, a glittering wonderland of fashion jewelry, watches, and home accessories. Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, the Japanese artist who took home Design Miami’s third Designer of the Year Award in 2007, the incandescent space’s textured walls appear to be reflective prisms, and are complemented by two one-of-a-kind Schonbek chandeliers—a tribute to the singular Art Deco architecture of Miami. The luxury label’s boutique will stock all of the brand’s classic crystal items, as well as the Spring/Summer 2013 collection of exotic green, fuchsia, turquoise, and lilac baubles inspired by a tropical paradise. Capturing the vibrant spirit of Miami, the collection includes the bold Trema cuff, which features embossed, golden leather resembling reptile skin; the Toya necklace, finished in a lively, aquatic color palette; and the Tangara bib necklace, a geometric collar that executes the current tribal trend brilliantly. 734 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-538-4877
