Getting Bodied!

It’s always so exciting when we venture into new directions. As you probably notice, body chain have gained significant popularity, mainly with celebrities who are caught by paparazzi while in their bikini’s sporting a full on body chain.


It’s an extra dash of shimmer that can make all the difference to an outfit. But for us, we were quite skeptical about venturing into that direction. For one, it uses ALOT of chain, not to mention how easily it gets tangled.  Plus, who has time to put on a body chain we snorted. 

Our minds changed when we were asked to make some simple body chains for a Refinery 29 photoshoot. Hey why not, so we started measuring each other with string, and sketched out a few designs. Here’s the designer trying it on before we made a few more adjustments. 

Imagine our giddy relief when our body chain design was chosen! Look at that model smile! 

Using our Rosary charms along with our signature delicate gemstone wire wrapping, we created something beautiful. Swoon! So, we’ve decided that we will probably have these available for purchase in a few weeks. Look out!
