Currently Coveting: AF House's tiny animal jewelry
When we first saw AF House's miniature gold animal pendants and jewelry, we wondered if we were the sort of girls who could carry off tiny gold piglets tacked to our earlobes.
But we reasoned that said piggies (and horseys and owls) are rendered in such a stylized way that there's no mistaking them for mere kids' stuff.
The 14-karat gold and sterling silver collection, which is priced from $100 to $300 (so wallet friendly!), was designed by Akiko Fuchigami, who started her career in the public relations department of Issey Miyake, and later handled the launch of the Tsumori Chisato brand in Tokyo.
AF House, which boasts the tagline "Modern charms with taste and style for men and women," was recently picked up by Fred Segal in Los Angeles, and counts Mary-Kate Olsen, Heidi Klum and Susan Sarandon amongst its famous fans.
The cutesie, cool line includes stud earrings, thin cuff bracelets and necklaces — all bearing Fuchigami's quirky, curvacious little animals.
Because the looks are relatively affordable, they make for sweet birthday gifts for gals of all ages. And their daintiness renders them great daily-wear for all stylish animal lovers.
