Unless you have been living under a huge rock – rock crystal, that is, you’ve probably been feeling the buzz surrounding Target‘s latest collaboration with accessories designer Eddie Borgo. The 2010 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up and 2011 CFDA Swarovski Award winner has created a collection of bracelets, earrings, necklaces, pins, belts and handbags – each of which is completely customizable with geometric charms made of semi-precious stones like hematite, pyrite, amethyst, rose quartz, howlite and malachite. To celebrate the launch, I partnered with Target to host an intimate DIY party, in my backyard, for a handful of my girlfriends. Not only were we blown away by the quality of the jewelry, we were all impressed by the variety of components that were available, allowing each of us to uniquely personalize our looks. And I loved seeing how even the most, self-proclaimed “DIY amateur” was able to whip up some of the chicest pieces of the evening.
Each of the galactic and metallic printed bags and clutches come with loops to adorn with charms, totems and more . . .
Pick a choker, rubber strap, cuff or charm bracelet as your base and just add beads, charms and studs. It’s that fun!
A wrist full of Eddie Borgo!
