Diamonds and pearls suit some women fine, but what excitement do they truly bring to the jewelry dialogue? The same way well-behaved women rarely make history, tame and traditional accoutrements seldom add character to those women’s lives. That’s why Brian Atwood’s new jewelry line is so thrilling; the enticingly daring luxury footwear maverick has taken his risque aesthetic to realm of heavy metal chokers and cuffs, and to call these ferocious pieces conversation-starters would be a shallow understatement. They’re made to be worn by a woman not tethered to quotidian desires; they’re a work of art destined for those who regard their lives to be the same. Non-adventuresses need not apply.
