The earring shown here is meant to look like a gauge but can be worn by anyone with pierced ears.

Influenced by studies in Morocco, she incorporates items like this Fibula Sweater Clip into her line. It’s inspired by traditional Moroccan Fibulae, but can also be worn as a brooch.

This trademark necklace is adjustable and can be worn a number of ways, adding function and versatility to the wearer’s jewelry wardrobe.
