Industrial Chic

poss op 2

There’s a sector of contemporary design inspired by industry/machine parts, like some of Art Deco. The influence can be seen in architecture, home furnishings, tabletop, more constructed fashion and accessories. Turn left and you get Goth with spikes and chains, turn right and you get Funk with rubber and plastic. The look is clean and geometric. As below:

Noir L.A.M.B. Cuff

Impact. This especially wide cuff, with cut-outs that keep it from becoming heavy looking, will be dramatic on women with height and presence. Whether worn on a bare arm or atop a long sleeve, with an after-beach maxi dress or a business suit, the piece indicates awareness of form and a decisive nature. No floral garments or accessories with this, please. Gold plated. 4.25” wide; 2.5” diameter. Open to slip on. $158.00

Matte Tones

Left: Black Castle Ring by Ana Cavalheiro- As if breaking through its casing, this ring is a bit industrial, a bit futuristic and entirely distinctive. It might even become a signature piece. Better with muted colors dark or light in order not to diminish effect. Artful. Dark oxidized sterling silver setting of 1carat white quartz stone. $415.00

Right: Nicole Romano Metal Mosaic Bracelet- A good piece for almost any size woman because of its delicate construction. Flexibly wraps nicely around the wrist. The interesting mixture of metal tones makes other jewelry easier to coordinate, though simple and geometric will work best. A casual piece. Bronze and silver sterling silver- plated. 3.5” width. Adjustable length 7.5” to 8.25”. Lobster claw closure. $448.00

Arm Party-Heavy Metal Moment by Dannijo

Look at the way these interesting textures work together! Wear all at once for maximum affect or separately to coordinate with other ensembles. Versatile mix and match possibilities exist. Ready for a Rolling Stones concert, a PS 1 art opening, dinner at Nomad, an advertising pitch. Texture-up with other accessories and tone down the clothes. Set of 3 ox brass plated bracelets (Sloane, Billy and Henri). $620.00

Dessa Peach Hoop Earrings by Camilla James

Resembling the cogs of a 19th century machine, these sit gracefully on the ear creating an illusion of movement. Rock n’roll cool. The sparkle of Swarovski with the edginess of spokes in a bold hoop design. One side of the hoop shows a peach accent, the other shows white. (These are available in several other color combinations.) Brass plated. Post. 2 ¼” long; 1 ¼” wide. $235.00

Brass and Gold-Plated Kelly Wearstler Cuff

The epitome of urban cool; even on-trend with a nod to polka dots which make the piece less serious. Sculptural, contemporary and unusual. You’ll be asked where you acquired this one. Do not be tempted to wear round earrings. Configuration should be different. Not matchy. Think in terms of shapes and finishes. 18 karat gold-plate and gunmetal-tone brass. Open back for easy slip-on. $425.00


Left: Chrishabana “Now is Tomorrow” Cage Quartz Gunmetal Necklace-Like a physically realized equation or a machine schematic, this architectural looking necklace is suited to women with sleek hair, a penchant for Asian and Deco design, precision, and creativity.Hematite plating. 2.5” high, 5/5” wide, 14” long. $248.0

Chrishabana “Now is Tomorrow” Cage Quartz Gold Necklace. 2.5” high, 5/5” wide, 14” long. $248.00

Right: Fallon Black and Gold-Plated Stud Collar- That’s right, you’re not looking at a ring or bracelet, this is a collar, a choker. Flash those eyes. Wear red lipstick and something cut low or slit high. The implication, of course, is dominance- yours or his—wouldn’t he like to know? A real conversation starter-great for bars and clubs. Black leather and gold-plated. 1.25” wide, 16” long. Buckles closed. $200.00
