While this post is more than a little late, like the adage says, “better late than never”. In this case, it really is better NOW than at SAG Awards, because this weekend is Oscar weekend with the Independent Spirit Awards happening on Saturday and Academy Awards being this Sunday, March 4!
Whether it is SAG AWARDS or the OSCARS, when you are seeking jewelry for a red carpet event, there is only one person to turn to–Michael O’Connor who is both jewelry designer and stylist. He is the “go-to” person for celebrities because he shows off jewelry that no one else has seen.
Originally I had thought this would make a great slideshow with Michael O’Connor’s commentary in the background but that got scrapped once I realized that our discussion on his picks ran 30 + minutes. That’s a pretty long slide-show. Instead, I have featured the podcast shown below (uploaded to soundcloud.com) and pulled the jewelry photos from each designer that Michael O’Connor discussed. Each designer has a “start” and “finish” time for their segment so you can jump around to various designers based on your preferences and not the linear presentation of the podcast.
(Also during this podcast from Susan Eisen to the end of the podcast, there is some “noise”/fuzz from the phone line. It seems to be loud initially and then it drops in volume. I tried to clean it up but was not able to remove it because it would mean eliminating the commentary on those brands. )

Thanks to Michael O’Connor for spending the time to talk to me about SAG Awards red carpet jewelry. We had a great conversation. I learned a lot about these incredible designers. Also thanks to Michael O’Connor and Niki Ostin for their patience while I dealt with the technical issues to get this live.
