Inclimate weather can be a real bummer. I get locked indoors and pester my parents to keep me amused – nobody wins. Clouds and rain conjure visions of the moody and murky, but we have found a sterling silver lining. Reimagining the regular into the whimsical is the outlook du jour for demi-fine jewelry company Girls Crew.
Mom came across their line at an eclectic gift shop in Raleigh and treated herself to a pair of Reigning Clouds Dangle Earrings in gold. These dainty danglers are 18k gold plated with purple, aqua and clear stone “rain droplets” that mimic an elegantly light but bright drizzle. The decision was a tough one as the chic contenders Blue Jupiter Hoops and Wandering Stars Necklace were orbiting her thoughts.
Girls Crew founder and CEO, Jina Chang, started designing and making her own jewelry at a young age – repurposing handbag chains and old necklaces into one-of-a-kind accessories. From grapes to bunnies to weather patterns, Jina’s playful imagination and fashion sensibility yield statements that balance the bold with the delicate.
These tasteful trinkets garner a giggle and a wink, appealing to a wide range of ages. Whether a Happy Birthday, a Mother’s Day, or a Treat Yourself Day, the forecast is cloudy with a chance of sparkle.
