Mineral Wonder

Lately, I’ve been favoring delicate pieces of jewelry — wispy gold chains and dainty pearls — over large statement pieces in an effort to achieve a minimalist, yet feminine wardrobe. But there are moments when I pull out a t-shirt or a blouse that just begs to be paired with something more substantial, something that can anchor the look when none of the other elements of the outfit are quite powerful. This is what makes me absolutely crave Regina Dabdab’s collections.

Crafted from minerals, driftwood, bones, coral, and other natural artifacts from her native Brazil, Dabdab’s jewelry effectively bridges the desire for a minimalist aesthetic, unique product, and attention-grabbing substance. I’m fascinated by the way the elements she collects seem to meld beautifully into the hardware of the jewelry, almost if the pieces had simply emerged from the Earth already attached to a gold bangle or silver chain. The manner in which she mixes-and-matches the different elements she’s collected is artful, whimsical, and harmonious. In a word, I'm obsessed.

What do you think of these pieces and how would you incorporate them into your wardrobe?
