Serpent bangles and chunky chain cuffs, resin stone rings and coin-embellished bracelets, lantern lariats and fringe drop earrings: summer may have barely started, but with new pieces from Jenny Bird’s eponymous jewelry line, we’re kiiiiiiind of reallysuperduper looking forward to fall.
A self-taught designer from small-town Ontario, Jenny Bird got her start with a collection of luxury handbags, which not only received rave reviews but also won her a trunk show at New York’s prestigious Henri Bendel. From there, Bird expanded the line to include her signature indie-luxe jewelry and won herself a loyal celebrity following (which Anna Dello Russo leads), and press in top magazines like W, FASHION and Flare. Her work has a reputation as one of the world’s most distinctive emerging accessory lines.
Our favourite pieces from her fall 2012 collection? We want the Half-Moon wood collar on our necks NOW please, plus the Resign Round Ring in magenta, the Chain Fringe Cuff, the Navy Lantern Lariat, the Charmed Friendship Bracelet in hot pink and the clear Earth Angel pendant. Everyday glamour, be ours, k thanks!
