Benthic Necklace by Hunter Gatherer Jewelry

Image

Some girls like a nice string of perfect heirloom pearls, while others prefer their jewelry with the slightest touch of melancholy. I fall into the latter camp, so I was I was thrilled to come across Hunter Gatherer, a darkly beautiful jewelry collection based right here in Chicago. Designed by Laura Prieto-Velasco, Hunter Gatherer does away with the artifice commonly found in fine jewelry in favor of a confident minimalism that lets the structure and design speak for itself. This piece, the Benthic Necklace, is on my wish list: 6 vintage mica rings hang from a hand-knotted black leather necklace. Black leather and weathered metal- it really doesn’t get any more perfect than that.  Hunter Gatherer Benthic Necklace, $90.  See the entire Hunter Gatherer FW13 collection here

Here are some of my favorite pieces currently on sale, you can see the entire collection of accessories here

But the craftsmanship and quality materials of a solid bag are always desirable, so I found a few that I love, but that will leave you guessing about the label on the inside.

Jewelry Edit Inspired By Martin Puryear

Image

During a recent edit of my jewelry collection, I realized that I have gradually drifted towards pieces that are more sculptural- jewelry that functions perfectly as stand-alone objects. I have been thinking of the work of Martin Puryear and how I would love to modify some of his work as pieces of jewelry…
