I’ve been holding out on you, accessory-obsessed readers, and for that I apologize. The wonderful Adorn Milk, a beautifully curated new jewelry shop from our friend Jaime Derringer of Design Milk has been up for a few weeks and I’ve been so busy browsing and coveting, I have not taken the time to share it with you.
If you’re into modern design, statement pieces, and spending a little money on one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories from indie designers, this is your new online home away from home. I love seeing work like Melissa Zook‘s handmade leather pieces (I still wear my own scrunch cuffs all the time), and the always cool Nervous System accessories. But what’s really fun for me is discovering new talents, new styles, new artists to support.
These are statement pieces for sure but that doesn’t mean everything is in the mortgage your house category.
Prices range from $12 for simple stud earrings shaped like X’s and O’s from Ofmatter, to Vulantri’s $1600 Ltha Circle Necklace made entirely by hand with ceramics and an intricate wooden chain. But most, like some of my favorites below, fall somewhere in the middle. And generally closer to the $50-300 range.
Yumi Endo Cut Necklace, $150
Nervous System Smooth Kinematics Necklace $100 in white, red, black
Sarah Loertscher Double Fold Earrings $104 for stainless; $180 for pink or yellow gold
MCE Swirl Necklace $220
Right now you’ll find the collection has a strong focus on geometrics, bold clean lines, interesting techniques, and cool shapes. Nothing particularly campy or kitschy. Really, Adorn Milk is about great design. And if you know Jaime, you wouldn’t expect anything less.
