Blame it on Girl Talk (or do you like Danger Mouse?) — artful mash-ups are music to our ears.
And our eyes. As is the case with Tuleste Market, a healthy mix of baubles, chains, and costume pieces inspired by decades past.
From a studio on Second Avenue, two sisters concoct crafty combos: two-tone Lucite pendants, gunmetal bows, hammered squares, colored enamel. Chunky necklaces, slender lariats, earrings, and wrist-hugging bracelets remind you of something you would have seen in the ’30s or the ’50s. No, wait, the ’80s. (See what we mean?)
This is some serious jewelry. Bold, loud, and with the right kind of jingle.
Turn the volume up.
