Last year's Project Runway winner has released a line of jewelry exclusive to Piperlime. I think this is awesome, actually. I love Gretchen Jones' style when it comes to apparel, but I think her jewelry is totally rad. In fact, during her runway show during the PR finale last year, it was the jewelry collection she created that was the real star. She has a F/W 2011 collection that you can view on her website. The piece to the left is one of them. Again, cool jumper, but that necklace is TOTALLY FAB.
Piperlime is in cahoots with Project Runway in a big way. So you can not only buy Gretchen's jewelry line on the site, but anything "seen on" the show as well. How many of you are watching this season? I thought last season's go-round on Lifetime was MUCH better than the final season on Bravo. Do you guys like Gretchen's stuff? A couple of my fave pieces from her exclusive collection on Piperlime are below.
Another cool point about the jewelry is that it is made by artisans in Bogota, Colombia, and 100% of net profits is donated to Aid to Artisans, which supports artisans like these Colombians around the world. Pretty cool. A bummer is that if you get something, there are no returns since it's a charity donation. Oh well.
