I’m not talking about body images, nor jeans. It’s all about the elusive finger or neck candy. I’m really not one to accessorize. Yes, I have a few pieces here and there (literally – they are all spread out through Deutschland, Canada and Cambodia), but nothing that really floats my boat here and now; especially while I’m surrounded the glam-ed up opulence that’s so characteristic of Khmer styles.
But lately I’ve been inspired by the skinny, or the minimalist take on jewelry one can say. Namely these thin bands I spotted on Fashiontoast/Rumi Neely earlier this year. If there is an accoutrement for this anti-accessorizer…then it’s definitely the minimalist’s take on metal and jewelcraft.
And so, I discovered super fab Cali-based jeweler, Loren Stewart (check out her ode to thin bands below!)…and inevitably the big wheels started turning. I cannot wait to go visit the most amazing jeweler (for those of us on a budget), Channa, in Russian Market. I know she’ll help me design something fab…and of course, minimalist.
