It was actually my younger brother that first introduced me to eco-friendly jewelry line, Alex and Ani when he gave me one of their pieces for Christmas (seen here and here) via Shopbop and since last December my love for this designer has only grown.
So imagine my delight to happen upon one of their few boutiques last week while in Nantucket. It was bright, warm and full of delight and I loved browsing their “Bangle Bars” and seeing some of the new pieces (like the collection featuring feathers of which the bangles can be seen in photos above). And to top it all off Alex and Ani uses eco-friendly and recycled materials for their designs.
I nearly lost my mind wanting to buy so many of their affordable pieces (lord knows I love me some stacked bracelets), but I used restraint and left the store with one of the more unique pieces being that of a whistle chain necklace embellished with black stones (shown above). I wore it today with a simple black dress from Gap and loved having the piece be the center of my look.
