WIN IT: Swoon-worthy Golden Leaf Earrings by Brooklyn Arts

“Born and raised in Italy, I studied classical and Jazz guitar and fine art in Sicily, with music, antique collecting and metalsmithing being my main passions and obsessions that shape my world.  My move to NY is a way to stimulate and expand a new and exciting way to express my passion and desire to create beautiful, original works of art.  With an eye on the past, in the form of tribal and traditional techniques you see rich texture and styling that is still relevant today.  Women want unique, yet wearable art that sets them apart.  I am bringing that gap between modernity and vintage appeal, essentially East meets West. “

— Brooklyn Arts designer Davide Schachter

About the author


a fun-loving, twenty-something living in Brooklyn. She spends most of her time absorbing all the life, tofu and whiskey that NYC has to offer. Her current obsessions?

  • I would normally have said Dean Morgan or go old school with Mark Shera (whatever happened to him) but if its unattainable I have to go with Angelina Jolie (the only woman I would go gay for). You know you could have given us an image of Davide Schachter to see if he is as good as his bio sounds.

  • I feel caught off-guard since I don’t have a celebri-crush at the moment…
    I was lusting after Billy Idol. (When he was in his 20’s/30’s. Since his bad accident and surgeries, I suspect he’s using human growth hormone and it’s made him look stocky.) On that note though, I wondered if it made him stocky anywhere it would count!

  • A fantasy guy that might be a bit less unseemly, Hugh Jackman! My guy is a dark haired Aussie but he hasn’t hit 30 yet…
    Hugh’s accent is stronger and isn’t my mom’s age like Billy Idol. (Ick!)
    Hugh would have to wear mutton chops like Wolverine! I’ve had a thing for him ever since I saw X-men! Imagine getting all sweaty with that manly, muscular, just right hairy-ness gentleman!
    Now THAT would be a vacation to day dream about! Lol.

  • George Clooney…I mean, he’s already over there in Italy, and it’s just a quick train ride from his Lake Como Villa to Tuscany 🙂

  • David Beckham is obviously unattainable because he’s married to Posh. I think he’s the most attractive guy on the planet right now. I’d love to play a little soccer with him in Tuscany if you know what I mean 😉
