We love our fit-for-a-princess diamonds and pearls, but sometimes, we just wanna channel our inner bad girl with cool, animal-inspired jewelry. We're not talking about dainty deers, though. Au contraire — think talon earrings, serpent bangles, and spider necklaces. (Okay, technically, those aren't all animals, but they're just as fierce.)
When it comes to animal-inspired bijoux, Pamela Love is our go-to designer. We've long had an obsession with her jewelry. Not to mention, earlier this month, the native New Yorker won the accessories category for the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent. Basically, her stuff is good — like really good. Check out our favorite animal-inspired pieces in the gallery below — PETA won't get mad at these!
