Coveting 3.4.10March 4, 2010
I like a little punk edge mixed in with my pearls, so I’m utterly adoring Joomi Lim’s Love Hurts bracelet-handcuff for Laila Lee. [Not really SFW] It’s the perfect combination of the pearls’ classic looks with a harder touch. If I’m not wearing them straight, I tend to mix pearls with a whole slew of chains, but I really like this idea of just contrasting them with clean lines of the single chain and the spikes. I would wear this as a bracelet, as shown below, but the versatility of the piece is great.
Joomi also makes other wonderful pieces which are available at Opening Ceremony. $195 is a little steep for me for this particular piece, given that I am armed with chains, pearls and jewelry pliers, and not afraid to use them, but I’m really inspired by it, and am already sketching out variations to play with next time I’m rooting through my jewelry-making supplies. I shall just have to go out to get some spikes.
Proving their versatility.
