Window Shopper: One-Of-A-Kind, Exotic Necklaces And Bracelets At Catbird

This spring, it's all about AAA: Accessories, accessories, accessories. Okay, so we're never not into bringing up our bling, bag, belt, and everything else quotient, but as the sun warms up and the open-toeds come out to play, we're all about using brand new jewelry to give our winter-weary wardrobes an easy makeover with lots of mileage. Enter Catbird's just-in necklaces and bracelets discovered by owner Rony Vardi in Turkmenistan ("I buy them for a man of mystery—that's all I can say.") All handmade and one-of-a-kind, these glittering adornments—made out of brass, silk, and semi-precious stones—truly pack more luxe for your bucks, with pendants ringing up at $140 and bracelets going for just $38. These babies are parfait for adding some exotica to a simple summer look, or going for Maharani-style sensory overload by layering them over your fresh, printed cocktail frock. While you didn't need a passport to find them, you don't have to tell anyone that...
