Here, I so often try to find new things to say about design elements that speak to me. Sometimes, I just want to just share something I’ve found and say, “Hey, I love that. I would wear that.”
But, really, shouldn’t I say more? Shouldn’t I say why? You know, it’s just not that easy. It’s easier to speak of lovely technique or innovation but it’s harder to say why something just strikes a chord.
Among the lines of jewelry that cause words to fail me is the work of Erin Jane.
So, about this, I can scare up a few words. As I’ve said before, one of the things I most appreciate in jewelry design is when the designer really makes necessary components do some of the aesthetic heavy-lifting. Jane has done this here with the silver band connecting the pendant to the chain. With this little maneuver, she’s cleverly elevated the design from what could of have been a much more forgettable necklace.

I didn’t write fast enough. This has sold. It’s beautiful, though, and maybe she’ll make more. I love dots. I love mixed metal. This is no brainer. Love it.
