Live From Baselworld 2013: Snake Jewels From Misaki, California Collection, and Antonini

The Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Fair is open for business, and one of the most noticeable trends already seen is snake motifs. With nearly 1,500 exhibitors—and a snake evident in some form or another in most booths—there are an endless number of interpretations, and certainly enough to post one daily. These three represent pieces seen on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, April 27–29.
