I have to say–I have been wanting one of these for a long time. I am such a fan of typography. Of quotes. Of sass. And of bold, graphic jewelry.
And what is perhaps more wonderful–is that this designer came by her talent pretty darn naturally. She is the daughter of needlepoint royalty, Erica Wilson!
The design was inspired by a vintage engraved napkin ring. She began working this scrimshaw look into pieces of wearable art. They were introduced at Barneys, and off she went! They used to be quite a bit pricier. I am suspecting that the recently reduced prices (they used to hover around $80-100), is due to her partnership with Santa Barbara Design Studio last year. These pieces are now affordably between $25-50. Much easier on MY wallet.
But how to choose. ???
