A wise sage once said, “Be still and the earth will speak to you.” But all you heard was, “Be still and concho necklaces and bolo ties will eventually come back in style.”
The prophecy turns out to be true: Behold Fortune Favors the Brave. Wise women (and New Yorkers by way of California) Shannon Davenport and Julia Wilson channel the best parts of the Southwest in their jewelry line.
Working with primarily silver and turquoise, they combine the sacred spirit of Native American art with the free spirit of the 1970s. Their spring collection, inspired by Sedona, includes an abundance of metal fringe and new takes on traditional staples like bracelets, studs, and, of course, several versions of the bolo.
Layer diamond-motif-stamped bangles; pile on Western-patterned pendants; make a statement with bold turquoise rings. And pass this folktale on to the next generation.
Available at fortunefavorsthebravenyc.com, $85-$340.
