Pulling off head-to-toe floral requires a whole lot of chutzpah (and a wee bit of luck).
Start small with confidence-building accessories from Adeline, a line of precious-metal jewelry from Oakland-based designer Lindsay Olson.
Mindful (Olson prefers timeless to seasonal) yet raw (geometric shapes inspired by a fortunate fusion of rough cityscapes and natural wonders), the designs look like edgy artifacts from a dystopian society.
Olson begins by carving from wax before casting in sterling silver or fourteen-karat gold and uses only precious or semiprecious stones.
Her silver triangle studs are bound to become the chambray shirt of your jewelry box. Winter wardrobe feeling a bit tired? A moonscape pendant, complete with granulated balls, takes any ensemble into the mystic.
Stacking rings, bracelets, and bangles are also in the works.
And much easier to find than a four-leaf clover.
Available at Fiat Lux, 218 Church Street, at Market Street (415-312-8413 or fiatluxsf.com), $30-$500.
