I am known to be a bit of an extremist, rather when it comes to my worries, my home decor selections and/or my choice in clothing. In my younger 20’s, I remember purchasing a pair of corduroy bright orange pants with large damask prints. I was proud of these pants and held my head high when I wore them to work one warm Fall day. A friend of mine, in classic cartoon form, did a double take, her eyes brimming with hidden humor. She slowly told me “Oh, those are…fun.” OK J.Bird, I get your point darling, its just a touch too much.
So, given that my style knows no bounds, a little birdie whispered about an Israeli jewelry designer taking on the female form in her new collection. Well, with many drawings in my home of women draped carelessly with thin bed sheets, I had to know more!
Gittit Szwarc is the beauty and brains behind Knobbly Studio Jewelry, an industrial spaced jewelry studio in the Noga District of Jaffa, Israel. This, now famous, jewelry designer was once a martial arts and movement instructor. Kids, you can grow up to be anything! Now, this lady has shifted focus to her artful jewelry. Among her collection is her deconstructed Dali-esque nude female pieces – part of an ongoing collection with Shutterbug and handpoke tattoo artist Laurie Franc.
You may have unnoticeable(y) noticed Szwarc’s rather cheeky jewelry designs of very abstract nude earrings and necklaces roaming the streets of New York, Europe…well, everwhere really. Not to be confused with TheUNDONE gold Holly Ryan squiggle earrings which will run you a couple hundred, Knobby’s collection of nude jewelry pieces are well under $95. The entire collection comes in gold and silver and can be as modest as these Large Nude No. 2 earrings, or as risque as this Gold abstract nude with nipple earrings set.
(cut to me clandestinely shopping for these naughty pieces on my work computer in incognito mode)
What do you think?
Would you dare to wear these full figured earrings and gold nipple necklaces? I think the word “dare” is appropriate because the designs take on such a daring symbol. The female form, thought to be sacred and therefore should be kept hidden, is now bare and unashamed with these jewels. I think I would wear them just to see the attention drawn from the public. What about you?
