If you haven’t already been following Pamela Love’s boho chic meets new wave tribal jewelry collection, you have so much to catch up on! She’s the master of mixing metals with colorful, earthy stones in undeniably original shapes and sizes, which is why we had to stop by her fall 2012 presentation in Milk Studios. The models were clad in unbuttoned brown overalls and worn-in white tees smothered with Pamela Love goodies. (Plus, we’re PRETTY sure that’s dirt on their faces.) The first look featured a gigantic gold collar with turquoise detail, Aztec-y triangle gold chain necklaces, stacked cuffs, and pointy spear-shaped metal rings. The second look is all about the statement necklace and oversized geometric arm cuffs, which, paired with these workman’s ensembles, gives us a serious industrial revolution vibe. While we were checking out the steampunk-inspired pieces, Soft Circle played some equally industrial music from nothing but electronic drums and analog synthesizers. Hisham Bharoocha, who hails from the experimental noise band Black Dice, said he made the set based on Pamela’s direction to use industrial sounds with an art deco feel.

Our favorite piece from Pamela’s collection had to be the triangle illusion cuff! We saw the models sporting it all sorts of ways (high up their arms by their biceps or low near their wrists), and no matter where it was placed, we loved how it gave a fresh feel to the traditional take on the cuff. Also, check out that two-finger knuckle ring with a fiery red spike across the top. We could totally see sliding on one of these pieces to add an instant “wow” factor to any ensemble.
