I discovered jewelry designer Assad Mounser via Instagram, and have been hooked ever since. Her feed is a magical compilation of travels and bright-colored baubles that any jewelry lover would appreciate. She has experience in the fashion industry, and used this experience to start her own luxury jewelry label in 2009. According to her website, Mounser’s design inspiration comes from the “1970’s glam rock genre”. Everyone from Rihanna to Karolina Kurkova has rocked her jewels, and I plan on adding myself to that list. I tend to veer toward the more feminine side, but Mounser’s pieces are the perfect combination of glamour and rock.
I’m a sucker for colorful baubles, especially one-of-a-kind pieces that you won’t see everyone else wearing. I love that you can instantly tell an Assad Mounser piece just by looking at the effortless mix of chains and colored beading. It actually makes me want to go out of my comfort zone and wear something a little more daring and edgy! I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that I have a hard time passing up a good statement piece, so now the hard part is deciding which one is my favorite.
