Blair Husain

Blair at home by Marko MacPherson for KiC

Have you ever met someone only to realize you have a million friends in common? That is precisely what happened to me and Blair. We would cross paths frequently, but did not really connect until a year ago when she ran into us shooting KiC on the street outside her apartment.  A jewelry designer with an eponymous line, mother of three and Best Dressed List topper; Blair is a stylish profile.

Although based in New York, Blair was raised in North Carolina and travels extensively. Through her travels, a broad range of cultural influences have come into play as inspiration for her work. Numbers are also important, because as she says “everyone has a number that means something special.”

Blair Husain Jewelry was first on my radar when I saw a lot of friends wearing her one-of-a-kind Roman numeral pendants and bracelets to honor special occasions. But it is her new pieces, especially the “rock” rings, that I think are gorgeous and fun.

A perfect day is: Sleeping late, having coffee from Sant Ambroeus in their beautiful salmon-colored disposable cups, going for a walk around the reservoir , meeting my family for a big brunch at Le Magnifique, watching my kids scooter in the neighborhood while I window shop, going to SLT for a workout, getting my hair blown-out (such a luxury) then reading stories to my children (listening to them laugh, watching them smile) and hearing them say their prayers…then off to dinner with my husband to T-Bar where they have the best lamb burger and banana dessert! Bliss!

Being a mother is: What I am most proud of and feel very blessed to experience.

Next destination: A family reunion in Jamaica for my brothers 40th!
