So generally speaking, I'm not a big jewelry person (hang on don't slap me yet). I find that the vast majority of jewelry available, even by high end designer brands, is pretty boring, or worse - cheap looking. Apart from a few classic, simple pieces for every day - thin gold bangles, a slender pendant necklace, etc - jewelry should be carefully edited, and pack a significant, relevant punch.
Enter the new tzar of statement jewelry: Andres Gallardo. Whatever this guy is drinking, I want what he's having.
Not only is his aesthetic right up my alley: porcelain, flora, fauna, feminine, and cleverly absurd, his pieces are hand crafted in small batches using found porcelain objects. Prices start at an extraordinarily affordable $100 and run up to around $650.
