Accessories Lust: Alexis Bittar’s Fall 2012 Elements Collection
How about some ear, neck, and wrist candy for the weekend? Alexis Bittar’s Fall 2012 Elements Collection is the definition of glam with shimmering jewels, crystal-embellished panthers, mixed metallic, and so much more, taking inspiration from the raw beauty of nature.
The Elements Collection began in Spring 2012, with the desire to combine intricate metal work with semi-precious stones. The vibe of the pieces is best described as “bohemian luxe” and no design is expected, truly making the designs unique. Each is a conversation piece in its own right and the level of craftsmanship exhibited in every chain link and stone setting will give you loads to talk about.
The Siyabona Mystic Green Dangling Clip Earrings and the Siyabona Panther Bracelet are high atop my must-have list for the season. Fun fact: Siyabona means “we have the ability to see the future” in Zulu.
Though chock full of glamour, the collection won’t break the bank, starting at $125. The pieces hit stores in August, but if you’re itching to secure something now, you can pre-order them at www.modaoperandi.com.
Which pieces are your favorite?
