inspired by...

anndra neen, jewelry designed by sisters phoebe and annette stephens...described perfectly here... "unusually rustic-glamorous pieces of handmade copper, brass, and nickel-silver jewelry all hewn in mexico. the designs--almost a cross between what you might find around the neck of frida kahlo or diana vreeland and locked behind glass at a mayan archeological museum--reveal an uncommonly bold sort of beauty, but also the hand that made them. "

(their first piece in the video is amazing!)
