Let me introduce you to my current favourite jewellery designer; the New York- based genius: Eddie Borgo.
Now, let me introduce you to the reasons why he caught my attention:
This last piece is inspired by the Mayor in The Nightmare Before Christmas, one of my longest lasting film-romances (the film in general, not the Mayor in particular). ‘Nough said?!
His posh-punk sense of style is absolutely brilliant! Who knew spikes could look this classy:
When asked to describe the kind of girl he wanted to decorate, he answered this:
“The stuff I’m making is for a contemporary girl who has things to do. And I see her in New York, or even in any modern city, Paris, London, and Hong Kong. She thinks of jewelry as an item. A piece of jewelry in her wardrobe is a signature piece that represents her, something she identifies herself with. And she’s a bit punky.”
If you’re like me, you may have found it difficult to unite your inner punk with the classy lady you know that you are. Eddie Borgo is the answer!
We may not be able to afford his jewellery now (or ever), but it is good to know that there are people like him out there working their rock and roll magic. Don’t you agree?
