Swiss designer Nicole Locher has launched her new jewelry line for the spring season and here at BUST, we're smitten. The trinkets are built with antique pieces Locher gathers from flea markets in Paris and they feature delicate lace, charms, and little bows paired with pistols, vintage mug shots, handcuffs and dirty phrases. The concept behind her designs is “perversion with a touch of class.” Sugar and spice, indeed.

Handmade jewelry is awesome. Colorful jewelry is awesome. Handmade colorful jewelry is way awesome. As someone who still wishes they could dress up like Rainbow Brite, you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across Tierra on Spring street, a small store full of handmade jewelry in the most rich, vibrant colors these eyes have ever seen.

Much like Flavor Flav, I enjoy a large “statement” necklace, so I plotzed when I saw Young Frankk’s brass chokers, which resemble giant metal collars. You can special-order them by contacting her through her Etsy store ($78, including shipping in the U.S.), where you can also find a selection of other ridiculously cute pieces.
