Consider this legal dilemma: What to do when a law-school grad discovers she’s more interested in a hung necklace than a hung jury?
Turn that diploma into wall art and start designing jewelry, of course. Ex-legal eagle Tonia Kim’s Toki Collection features earrings and necklaces that combine semiprecious stones (like African sapphires, milky moonstones, and moody London blue topaz) with dainty eighteen-karat gold or silver chains draped in loops, clusters, or symmetrical grids. Strongest evidence you’ll be wearing Toki soon: the regal earrings reminiscent of Victorian candelabras, a big improvement over last season’s overdone chandelier.
To sum up? These brilliantly fluid pieces will never go unnoticed.
Available at p. 45, 1643 North Damen Avenue, between North and Wabansia Avenues (773-862-4523). Toki’s trunk show will be held there on July 31 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
