Your accessories drawer contains chokers, slap bracelets, and an embarrassing amount of Fimo.
You’ve been barking up the wrong tree.
Unleash your inner hipster with sweet handmade wares from Lulu, a local jewelry collection. Designers, lovahs, and School of the Art Institute grads Jessica Paulson and Stephen Eichhorn named the line after their toy poodle.
When not heavy petting, the duo is collecting vintage beads, enamelware from the ’60s and ’70s , gold chains, and natural materials like wood and bone. Then they wear their fingers to the bone assembling every piece. Lulu designs juxtapose geometric shapes (hexagons, triangles) with organic motifs (feathers, birds).
Get your paws on the gold drop necklace, enamel feather earrings, or the bird necklace (carved horn bird, bone feathers).
