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.
