With a knack for creating simple jewelry with a captivating twist, Etten Eller's latest Hammer collection is like a story wrapped up in a few, uncomplicated baubles. Named (and ostensibly, designed--though we can't quite figure out the method) after notable dates in history like 01.16.1974 (Kate Moss's birthday) and 03.01.1692 (the start date of the Salem Witch trials), each bronze adornment teaches us a history lesson and has us wishing we had more backless dresses to show these babies off.
