There are a lot of different things jewelry can do: it can make you feel strong, elegant, sexy, refined, bold – but sometimes what you really want is a piece of jewelry that makes you smile.
Sarah Magid’s new Candy Drop collection is like laughter made tangible. It’s vivid, vivacious, and (ahhh I’m out of v words) just super fun. It’s also a delight for the eye to behold.
These chandelier earrings are the showpiece of the Candy Drop collection and a perfect introduction to its lurid, voluptuous appeal.
What you’re seeing here hand-painted soft enamel embellished with perfectly matched Swarovski crystals. When sending me the photos, Sarah Magid said of this collection that she always loves to use fine jewelry techniques to make costume jewelry. I’m glad she does, because the results are certainty fantastic.
The colors in the Candy Drop collection are inspired by the art of Yayoi Kusama. That makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? These designs embody the same kind of whimsical exuberance that makes Kusama’s art so irresistible.
I can’t quite believe we haven’t talked more about Sarah Magid here. She makes high quality costume jewelry and I’ve been a huge fan of her designs ever since I discovered a cache of her jewelry in my friend Hannah Becker’s luggage when we were consulting on each others’ outfits for the AGTA Spectrum Awards Gala last winter.
I can’t decide which color is my favorite. And I love love love that this collection is being launched in Winter, a season so frequently treated as appropriate for nothing but metallics. We all need a little more color in winter.
Any time you’re looking for seriously good quality jewelry that’s below the four digit price range, Sarah Magid is a fantastic option. If you like the spirit here but aren’t quite ready to rock color this intense, you should definitely check out Sarah’s other designs.
If you hurry, you can get 40% off! She’s still running a Cyber Monday Special – and most of these pieces are under $200 to start with, so we’re talking fully splurge-worthy.
