Samantha Louise Jewelry

A 2011 “Fashion Group International Rising Star of Denver” finalist with a solid local following and an expanding U.S. business, designer Samantha Larkins definitely hit her stride last year. Although she’s known for her signature combination of circle motifs handcrafted in 18-karat gold and pavé diamonds, we think it’s her multi-hued gemstone creations that really put Larkins’ color sense and design chops on display. samanthalouisedesign.com or Oster Jewelers, 251 Steele St., 303-572-1111, osterjewelers.com
