Telltale signs of arm party overindulgence: lethargic, pale forearms and wrist trysts you barely remember.
Stick to a single statement piece from Fathom & Form, a debut accessories line from designers Christopher Baas and Carleigh Wamberg.
Futuristic angles and reinterpreted kaleidoscopic shapes make up the bulk of the San Francisco-based company’s twenty-piece collection (cast by Shapeways), which includes a mix of tough-looking rings (double diamond or coffin) and bib necklaces that cause a stir when draped against a plain collar or neckline.
Baas and Wamberg share a passion for the mechanics of construction, and each of their sterling silver and fourteen-karat gold-plated creations — which are made stateside — is a meticulously layered standalone stunner.
Consider them insurance against Stackholm syndrome.
