Candy isn’t always best when it’s sweet. Case in point: accessories from Rock Candy Design, a San Francisco jewelry line with a rebellious streak we wholeheartedly approve of.
Pieces like the Brothel Token pendant draw on the shady ladies of the Barbary Coast for inspiration, while the Cocksucker charm necklace caught our eye for its literal sensibilities and obvious conversation starting-appeal. You’ll fare far better than Bret or Daisy with a silver “diamond” as your new Rock of Luv, while metal multi-chain necklaces and bracelets deliver the kind of stage-worthy wow factor we’d use to amp up a simple black top and jeans.
Made by Sheryl Gould, who started out creating jewelry at a young age using wire and materials from her dad’s hardware store, each piece is designed to worn by men or women – a quality she dubs “unisexy.” Gould tells us, “I appreciate seeing men wear jewelry, when they wear it well.”
Prices range from $25-$500 and are currently available at Backspace. Stay tuned for an online source: Gould tells us she’s launching her etsy shop soon.
