BLOG - HARRISON STYLE CONSULTING

I recently stumbled upon a really cool jewelry designer in Tribeca, NYC, and though I kind of want to keep this one a secret, I feel compelled to share. Her name is Cass Lilien and she has a teeny-tiny 60-square-foot store with a large window that looks out onto Harrison Street.

The robot charm necklaces, gold snake earrings, and a pink tourmaline ring were the pieces that first caught my attention, but when I peeked through the window and saw Cass working on her jewelry inside the miniature location I had to go in and get the scoop.

If you peek beyond the robots necklaces you'll see Cass working away on a new design.

She’s particularly skilled at mixing vintage repurposed pieces with a contemporary flair (I’m coveting the Edwardian lingerie pin cast in 14K gold and paired with a chunky chain necklace). But probably the most unique pieces – and the most gift-able if you’re looking to really knock someone’s socks off – are the morse-code strands using beads, diamonds and dash-shaped pendants to spell out everything from Led Zeppelin to completely customizable personal messages.

I've got my eye on the Edwardian lingerie pin on the left (wink, wink).
