Hammer Time: Etten Eller S/S ’10

Nostalgia is a connecting thread between all of Etten Eller’s jewelry collections. That along with delicacy and sheer gorgeousness. I’m absolutely in love with Spring 2010 entitled “Hammer”. With a play on the industrial nature of nails and the heavy use of delicate brass ‘pearls,’ it’s safe to say that this collection is by far my favorite. And the competition was steep.

Each piece pays homage to the past with a defining date stamp from a monumental moment in history (from the date Joan of Arc was captured, to the most recent date when the designer herself cut her arm making a bracelet and got 9 stitches). The designer also nods to history with the use of ancestral collars and Victorian ornamentation.

I love the range withing the collection: styles vary from one ‘pearl’ balancing on a delicate gold chain, all the way to a collar made with handfuls of tiny ‘hammers’. It’s truly amazing what this Brooklyn based designer can do with a hammer and a pearl!

Along with this Spring 2010 collection, Etten Eller has also revealed a new Website (www.etteneller.com) where you can view past collections and more.
