Brian Atwood who is known for his gorgeous shoe design has ventured in a whole new other direction by creating a jewelry line. The designer gave Elle an exclusive first look at the stylish lookbook that shows off the gold and leather jewelry perfectly. Talking about inspiration behind the jewelry the designer said:
I was inspired by the sexy shape of a stiletto heel–the same shape that is on the façade of my new store on Madison Avenue. It’s an iconic shape that I think makes the jewelry powerful yet still feminine.
The collection consists mostly of cuff bracelets in various finishes and the designs on velvet straps. There are python cuffs in black and brown python textured finish, leather cross cuffs made in 10K gold and hematite plated brass. There are also wrap bracelets and chokers with metal details and velvet ties.
The cuffs are quite stylish and are also a big Spring 2013 trend in accessories. The designer also branched out in handbags department earlier this year launching a collection of bright and bold purses just as interesting as his footwear.

This line of accessories is full of stylish modern pieces that can be worn both in evening and during the day. The gold cuff bracelets are a great accessory for an evening gown as well as it looks harmonious in casual day-to-day outfits.
Chokers and wrap bracelets can too be worn both ways. The velvet straps nicely contrast with the smooth odd-shaped metallic details also in gold and hematite plated brass.
The collection that’s made in Italy is priced in range between $175 and $495. It’s already available online as well as at Atwood’s New York store on Madison Avenue.
