While I tend to favor studs, a solid statement-making pair of earrings are a jewelry box necessity. Especially once warmer weather begins to rear its head and layers of clothing start to drop off. Annie Costello Brown‘s brass and silver jewelry is hand-cut and hammered in her Los Angeles studio, and the results are pure art.

Spring may be making its long-awaited arrival this week, at least here in Pennsylvania, temperatures are in the 60s and 70s and there’s lots of rain on the horizon. I’m ready to vanquish my winter coat to the closet and rely on something a little lighter – like maybe one of these cheeky sweatshirts?

After a weekend of 60-degree temperatures I have all things spring running through my head! Many of my wardrobe staples make the transition from season to season by depending on layering and accessories to mix them up. Portland shop Barrow features beautiful glazes and hand-dyed cotton cord, just the sort of things I’m looking for to make everything feel a little lighter and brighter.

As it turns out, I have a bit of a problem with sunglasses. For some people it’s coats or shoes or jewelry, but I’ll just take all of your sunglasses thankyouverymuch! Eyewear company Shwood has designed a pair utilizing oxidation, brass inlays are subjected to the chemical reaction in-house to create one-of-a-kind versions of their best selling frame – the Camby.
