Costume Jeweler Tom Binns Is Launching An Artistic New Collection You Have to See
Several years back, everyone and their moms wore statement necklaces. Remember those oversized, multi-layered, crystallized bibs that could replace a shirt collar and add pizazz even to a corporate office outfit. Tom Binns was one, if not the only, trendsetter to start the frenzy with his beautiful pieces. Even Michelle Obama was a fan!

While statement necklaces are a thing of the past (although coming back in undulating waves throughout the seasons), Tom Binns is back with a new and completely fresh approach to jewelry. His most recent collection has one-of-a-kind accessories (really, more like mini art installations) with cleverly allotted names.
“The inspiration behind my latest work is to extend the perception beyond fashion accessories," Binns says in a press release. "I want them to be seen more personally—as an individual selection of expression. They are unique, collectible works as opposed to manufactured products.”
