ITALIAN JEWELRY DESIGNER MARCO BICEGO TO VISIT HILTON HEAD

Though Italian luxury jewelry artist Marco Bicego’s work is known around the world and celebrated in art capitals from San Francisco to St. Tropez, the artist himself seldom visits stores where his works are sold. 

But Bicego will appear in person Nov. 20 at Forsythe Jewelers on Hilton Head Island to host a trunk show, meet clientele and personally engrave any pieces purchased that day.

There’s something to be said for facing the great outdoors head on, pitching your tent at the edge of the wilderness and communing with nature.

Ask people to name luxurious delicacies, and caviar often tops the list. Traditionally, this briny, nutrient-rich treat is served as an elegant appetizer, accompanied by small Russian pancakes called blinis plus sour cream or créme fraiche, diced onions, chopped chives and hard-boiled eggs. Even its serving utensils evoke a sense of sophistication: Mother-of-pearl, bone or ivory spoons are used to avoid even a hint of metallic aftertaste from silver or stainless-steel flatware.

Pat Conroy had a profound impact on the literary world. His work has inspired countless writers, and his generous spirit encouraged many to follow in his footsteps. Their appreciation for his support can be seen in a new collection of essays titled “Our Prince of Scribes.”

In 2004, South Carolina was one of the last states to legalize tattooing, and it took regulators more than two years to establish rules and allow the first tattoo shops to open.

Today, there are multiple shops on Hilton Head and in Bluffton, Beaufort and Hardeeville that draw local customers and vacationers as well as clientele from Savannah and beyond.

It was 37 years ago, but Peter Mullin can still tell you everything about the moment his love of art deco cars began.
