Wear your heart on your sleeve — or in this case, around your neck. Bunny Paige’s spiked heart necklaces ($65-$250) are part punk, part opulence and part costume bling. Designer Lauren Tatum, who started out in 2012, crafts awe-inspiring statement-making jewelry that’s been shown on runways, at Cirque du Soleil performances and around the necks of everyday people wanting to express themselves.
Mixing light and dark elements, her resin heart necklaces come covered in 70 to 200 Swarovski crystals. A labor of love, these necklaces take three to four days to make and come in a range of colors including turquoise, pink, orange and striking black and silver.
“I’ve had a lot of people tell me they wear the spiked hearts when they want to go out and feel beautiful, or they want to feel tough, or they want to feel something that just resonates in them,” says Tatum. “And nobody’s ever been wrong.” bunnypaige.com
