Nylon - Turn on the charm

Nylon July 2009

With her Little Icon collection, designer Alex Woo injects fun into fine jewelry by creating charms that are at once elegant ad playful.  But Woo is quite serious about her mini masterpieces: "Each one is designed to stand alone like a piece of artwork," says Woo, who has a background in sculpture, and designs and crafts each trinket in her New York City studio.  Music lovers may dig the tiny musical notes, but there are quirky combos for everyone: Try coupling a silver spade with a 14-karat-gold horseshoe for a little luck, or sport your initials in diamond-encrusted letters for a flashier look.  The pendants can be fancy but also, as Woo insists, "classic enough to wear everyday." - Rebecca Strauss
