I’m not really a jewelry person. I’m not sure why I ever bothered to get my ears pierced considering I hardly wear earrings, half of the watches I own don’t even work (they need new batteries, I think), and costume jewelry has always been interesting to me but an anomaly for my personal style.
I don’t know where these feelings towards jewelry began as my grandmother is a woman whose style is defined by the excessive amount of rings, bracelets and earrings she wears on a daily basis. Throughout the years she’s attempted to up my accessory game by gifting me a piece of jewelry whenever she got a chance. However, other than one simple silver ring that is always on my right-hand ring finger, most of her gifts have been reserved for special occasions or days where I attempt to be more adventurous with my style.
Despite my attempts to incorporate more jewelry into my wardrobe, no pieces have truly stuck out to me, that is until I discovered Datter Industries.
I absolutely love the pieces from Datter Industries. Started in 2010 by illustrator Kaye Blegvad, Datter Industries adds a bit of narrative fun to your outfits without taking center stage. From delicate metals featuring arrows, cats, skulls, birds, hands and more, the pieces are full of personality and easy to transition from your working wardrobe to every day style.
As if this brand wasn’t impressive enough, all the pieces from Datter Industries are constructed from hand carved wax, produced to order then finished by hand in Blegvad’s personal studio, meaning their of the utmost quality. Stack on a few bracelets, a ring and a necklace of these delicate metals and you’re sure to catch your co-workers off guard with your playful yet sophisticated approach to accessorizing.
