Out come the Docs from sophomore year. “Boys Don’t Cry” wails from the record player. Now the perfect accessory. What would Siouxsie wear?
A necklace by Brooks Poitier, perhaps? The one-of-a-kind gems really make us swoon in a New Romantic kind of way.
Black French tulle delicately wraps clusters of beads and findings to make the colorful Haji and Sydney pieces while Tyler and Ava’s pearly strands peek through for a dainty-with-a-dark-side effect. Satin ties off styles like Diana, a petal-like offering of bubblegum pink stones, and Madison, a mix of semiprecious stones, vintage notions, and a feather or two, is finished with woven ribbon.
All made by hand, no two are alike.
But each one will have them screaming like a Banshee.
