Neon Zinn

neon-zinn-1-design-crush

 

Neon Zinn, AKA creator Seth Damm, is a collection of jewelry made from hand-dyed 100% cotton rope. Equally at home hanging on you wall as around your neck, Damm’s creations are expressive and experimental creations that can best be described as sculptural wearables.

Fall is my favorite season, but it’s for the crisp air and wardrobe options rather than the pumpkin spice lattes (blech!) and shorter days. And I’m past ready to bring out ankle boots, sweaters, and hats. I wouldn’t mind adding these things to my life either…

Delicate Rings

delicate-rings-1-design-crush

Crescent Ring

I have stupidly small hands that look kind of ridiculous with large rings. Back in high school – shout out to the 90s! – I’d stack my fingers full of chunky silver rings, but the style gods have smiled upon us and much has changed since then. Not only are tiny thin rings the preferred look, but I also now prefer gold.  Check out these thirteen favorites.

WKNDLA

WKNDLA

 

Anything featuring tassels is usually either A. a little too grandma or B. a little too hippie for me. Not so with WKNDLA. Brass, wood, and cotton play prominent roles in the different sculptural wall hangings and accessories owner Cindy Zell makes and sells. Their modern, minimal vibe is a breath of fresh air.

Bekka Palmer

Bekka Palmer-1-Design Crush

 

I especially love when an artist gravitates towards one medium or material and runs with it in every possible direction. Case in point, Bekka Palmer‘s hand-sewn rope necklaces and embroidered film series.  Her necklaces are just about perfect for your summer wardrobe while the embroidered film is part of a larger project – 100 Days of Thread and Film.

Dusen Dusen x Highlow Jewelry

Dusen Dusen x Highlow Jewelry-1-Design Crush

 

Being part of a successful collaboration is one of the best feelings (you work well with others!), and it’s even better when it looks this good. Dusen Dusen and Highlow Jewelry teamed up after being mutual fans, doing a product swap with one another, then joking about selling a dress and necklace combo pack. After noticing people were already pairing their two brands together Ellen van Dusen and Sonya Gallardo decided to combine the two, creating this pattern laden collection – Dusen Dusen x Highlow Jewelry.

Fossil x Opening Ceremony

Fossil x Opening Ceremony-1-Design Crush

 

A few months ago Fossil and Opening Ceremony teamed up for a capsule collection of eclectic style with a vintage twist. In other words, it’s kind of phenomenal. The limited edition line features a little something for both men and women with its statement watches, reversible bags, and other accessories. The end result of Fossil x Opening Ceremony is playful yet innovative.
