WHERE: ANNIE COSTELLO BROWN
WOW: WOMAN OWNED
There is a small painting of me hanging on the wall of our living room. It’s understated but significant; uncomplicated yet interesting; detailed but tasteful. How people adorn their walls speaks to the brand of person they are and what makes them compelling human beings.
Hanging certain accessories from your ears can accomplish much the same. Wearable art is profound and special – provoking similar emotional reactions as a sculpture or watercolor. Taking a risk with a unique shape or bold color can be exhilarating, and one of the best ways to accessorize with artistry is with a pair of Annie Costello Brown earrings.
This designer-minded craftswoman, and her all-woman team of metal mavens, make each piece by hand in her L.A. studio. Together they cast, weave, string, and chain, creating jewelry that is playfully sophisticated with a timeless edge. I bark and spin each day when the mail person arrives, and Mom joined me as she excitedly ran out to receive her delivery of the Mini Arc Drop Blue earrings.
Dazzling in a Matisse patina blue with a nod to Calder, these brass beauties are delicate in construction but robust in style. When Mom dons these danglers she feels empowered and remarkable. Any of the earrings in this collection make the perfect gift for a snazzy sibling’s birthday or an adventurous friend’s jewelry archive. Gilded in glamour and conceptually crafted, Annie Costello Brown is your ultimate earlobe gallerina.
