We love ourselves a stack of colorful bangles as much as the next gal, but as we sit at our desks typing away each day, we prefer ones with a little less… clankity clank clank. These silk turban bracelets from jewelry company Nina Loren offer just the right mix of colorful pop, wire-wrapping for visual interest, and silk material to keep it all nice and quiet.
The designer’s name is actually Nina Cortes, and you might remember her as the spunky, Miami-based contestant from Season 1 of reality TV show “Project Accessory”, a “Project Runway” spin-off. Her intricate wire-wrapping and jewelry skills earned her a spot in the top 3, and she’s used her acclaim to grow her existing jewelry business, recently opening a retail store in the art-deco district of Miami.
Born of Cuban descent and raised in Miami, Cortes’ background figures into her designs, which feature eye-catching colors and bold-yet-delicate silhouettes.
At just $28 each, these bangles are the perfect accessory to stack on your wrist for a day at the beach, or a night of salsa dancing. www.ninaloren.com
