Authentically Better-Than-the-Runway Jewelry

Jewelry is something we here at Modavanti cannot get enough of. It is the perfect addition to any outfit. And despite what anyone may say, we think you can never have too many accessories for one outfit. We drew inspiration from the hottest pieces that hit the Spring 2015 runway, providing sustainable alternatives from up-and-coming designers. 

 

1. Brass Pysanky Bracelet by Laura Busony

Lanvin was all about statement bracelets this season. We matched it with LAB by Laura Busony's Brass Pysanki Bracelet. This bracelet is handmade using a combination of traditional lost wax casting and metalworking techniques, sprinkled with slightly unorthodox methods of construction. All are created with good vibes from a renovated pillow factory in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  

 

This piece worn in the Maiyet show mirrors our Tulare Necklace by George & Laurel. The versatile Tulare Necklace is designed and crafted in Los Angeles, California by Dani Killam and Blair George. These two met in college and after working in the fashion industry for years they decided to start a brand committed to sustainable pieces for bold, confident women.

 

Givenchy showcased Crystal Collars. Laura Buscony's Durvedan Necklace provides the same strong, but elegant feel. This piece is handmade using a combination of traditional lost wax casting and metalworking techniques, sprinkled with some other slightly unorthodox methods of construction, in a renovated pillow factory in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
