When most people think of designers they thinks of runway shows, big crowds, exclusivity, and, naturally, clothes. But today I’d like to talk about an incredible jewelry designer I had the pleasure of working with recently. Her name is Alyssa Davis and her brand is called “Skiler Love,” pronounced sky-ler.
Her jewelry is all handmade and each piece shows off an exquisite kind of individuality and craftsmanship that is hard to find in this mass-market world. The pieces I’ve styled are from her newest collection “Bohemian Luxe.” She describes it as a little vintage charm, with a modern simplicity and a whole lot of individuality. This body chain was one of my favorite pieces in the collection. I love the idea of jewelry worn in new ways and this harness-like chain is both on trend and simple enough to wear easily. The Calypso body chain is $65, come in three sizes, and will be available for online purchase on October 1.
This next piece I’m wearing is the Tribal Collar, one of the more colorful pieces in the collection. I love statement necklaces and this one is such a unique mix of tribal and edgy. It’s also incredibly easy to wear with just about anything.
The Tribal Collar necklace is $75 and will be available for online purchase October 1st. To see more of Skiler Love and learn about Alyssa’s jewelry, check out her website. Those who are local to the Boston area can also come to her launch party on September 30th at The Greatest Bar from 7-9pm. It’s going to be a great show!
