Sabina Kasper‘s jewelry combines both sugar and spice. The Swedish-based designer has developed a following for her glam-punk jewelry, which features stunningly simple shapes wrought with intricate detail. Kasper’s talent for uniting bright color with understated edge has yielded a unique line of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and pendants that is simultaneously tough and girly.
Although her designs are an obvious departure from the goth-inflected hardware of recent years, Kasper’s jewelry still manages to feel subversive. Imagine biker-chic with unabashed femininity: chain bracelets hand-painted with red and pink tones, pearl earrings with devil and cat ear accents, gem studded rings that seem cut from a warrior’s chainmail. The subtlety of Kasper’s edge is what makes her designs so appealing. Whether it’s graffiti pearls or perforated leather collars, she approaches each design with a seeming irreverence that defies her otherwise discerning aesthetic.
