We’ve never had the (lack of) hips for a drop waist, and the thought of alcohol being prohibited makes us want a drink.
A better way to embrace the Roaring Twenties: jewelry designer Sophie Blake.
After training for a career in economics and international relations, Blake realized her passion lay in the visual realm. She taught herself the jewelry trade and now creates her pieces by hand locally.
Channel old-school style by pairing a Bakelite cabochon brass cocktail ring with matching geometric dangle earrings. A tubular mesh chain necklace hung with a deep red triangular pendant completes the set.
If you’re looking for a more modern take, spiked gold bib chokers with pearl or chrysocolla and crystal beads revisit art deco without looking costumey. Add to (or start) your Gatsby-level arm party with braided leather bracelets.
You’re bound to look jazzy.
