Earrings by Annie Costello Brown

If Fall 2016 marks the return to minimalism all of us nineties kids are hoping for, it will also be known as the season of the statement earring. What better way to pop your ribbed mock turtleneck sweater than a pair of absolutely over-the-top earrings?

Enter Annie Costello Brown, an L.A. based jewelry designer and artist who we first discovered at a Clare V. shop.

These are big pieces and they are priced so fairly, we almost couldn’t believe it. Shoulder grazing brass earrings for around $300. Yes, please!

You can order them directly from her shop here, though she notes up to 4 weeks delivery time.

One of the best parts about them is how light-weight they are. Though they pack a substantial sartorial punch. We were amazed at how little they felt like when they were actually on.

HereĀ is one of our favorites.

Long rain dusters in silver. $239. Available here

Brown has purposefully kept the size of her company small – so small, it’s just her. This allows her to actually create each piece herself.
