friday's one-of-a-kind find: holst + lee

I normally like to find one showstopper from a somewhat obscure, new or at least etsy-affiliated designer to feature each Friday. But the dazzling jewelry coming out of breakout brand Holst + Lee is just too good to wait until Monday. Plus, the line is based right here in Brooklyn, and its tribal-meets-trendy-meets-techno vibe more than qualifies as one of a kind.

Check out Natalie Holst + Rochelle Lee, the duo behind the brand, along with some of their latest + greatest:

The beauty is in the details here - and these two ladies have spared none in the name of style. The magnetic closure, crazy color combinations, inspired hardware + varied textures make these pieces irresistible to everyone from supermodels to superstar athletes.

The fact that they've exploded (recent collaborations include mara hoffman and cut25 for spring 2012!) means that their line is now available on shopbop, which also means that each piece will cost you a pretty penny. But hey - if you want to rock something this cool, you have to pay up. Unless, of course, you have the skills to attempt a DIY version...

I mean, all it takes is some thread, some hardware + an insane eye for style. Simple, right?

Enjoy your weekend! xo
