We love all things travel here at Designhype, this is really what inspired our Metro Cuff Series in the first place so I'm super excited to introduce our newest jewelry line inspired by travel, of course, but also of our favorite iconic architecture from around the globe!
We've added a bit more whimsy to this collection while carrying over our love of the visual, graphic language of our cuff bracelets. We wanted to do something different with the traditional souvenir, something fun and playful but also something that acts as a reminder of where you've been and an inspiration to go out and explore the world.
We also created these designs to be functional and worn for your protection. We were taught to place a key between our fingers for self defense. In place of a key, our pointy necklaces are designed to be beautiful, worn always and easily accessible for if and when they're needed a bit of protection.
I think of these necklaces and key rings as talisman or tokens of one's love of travel, the cultural nuances we encounter as well as the things we internalize and bring back with us; our memories of the place, the people and our emotions associated with these experiences. Our reflect necklaces were inspired by our memories after travel. The thought of a place or in this case a building being visited so often by travelers makes us wonder what stories would it tell us if it could. If it could reflect upon its history and the people who visited, what would we find? We'll keep adding to the collection, we have an LAX-themed necklace coming out in August!
