Slideshow: Jules. Spring 2011 Lookbook

Our favorite Chicago metalsmith, Jules Schwanbeck, is letting R29 in on a spring collection full of truly unique inspiration. Every piece in her namesake line—designed by hand in Wicker Park—channels Jules' personal experience with spinal fusion surgery (!). The result is a rad range full of statement necklaces and bracelets that inject delicate offerings with a rock star edge. With such interesting subject matter, you know Jules' fame following gets bigger every day— Rachel Ray, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Beals regularly sport a Schwanbeck original. Wouldn't you?
Click through to see why we're loving Jules' unique perspective and her use of metals, minerals, and anything else she likes.
