Even if you’re not living the free-wheeling, bohemian life of a rock star, you can at least accessorize like one. Start with a dramatic pair of feathered earrings, like these cobalt blue stunners from French jewelry line, Gas Bijoux. The intricate look of these earrings take their cue from an ancient tradition of beadwork prized by the native Huichol people of Mexico, and have appropriately been dubbed the “Huichol Plume Earring.”
Reflecting a classic Huichol design, tiny glass beads form a diamond pattern, shimmering into a cascade of bright blue feathers that reach for your shoulders.
While inspired by an indigenous culture of North America, these have been handmade by artisans in France, home base for the Gas Bijoux father-offspring trio of André, Olivier and Marie Gas. The studio has long-produced jewelry of a laid-back luxe vibe, starting with the days of André Gas, a Marseilles native who began selling jewelry he made himself on the beaches of St. Tropez. They’ve managed to maintain the original free spirit of André’s early designs and you can certainly picture wearing these while strolling the seaside promenades of Mediterranean France.
With a sweeping, 5 inch drop, they dust the shoulders for maximum boho statement-making effect; a lovely punctuation for an off-the-shoulder top. But beware their deluxe-hippie powers of coolness: you might just get double takes from strangers, as they mistake you for a famous off-duty rocker.
