PAPER AND PLASTIC: Gone are the days when jewelry had to include, well, jewels. Today's designers play with a variety of media for pieces that are uniquely theirs and, in turn, uniquely yours. Such is the case with Unstandard Deviations' necklaces, from San Diego designer Jennie Hinkle. Made from thermoplastic and vintage paper prints, each piece carries a film noir sort of feel mixed with contemporary kitsch for a fun, casual look. GET IT: For $40 each. Unstandard Deviations on Etsy.
Kitschy jewelry that really says something.
