For Halloween, we thought we’d curate some of our favorite skull & bones imagery from the worlds of fashion and home decor. The skull clutch (top row, left) and skull pillows (bottom row, left) are from The Coveteur’s feature on jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher, who makes beautiful, fierce jewelry that I covet. But what I covet even more is her fabulous story.
Jennifer began her career as a wardrobe stylist for film, TV and commercials in New York and L.A. Ten years in, she started her family and, when her son was born, she wanted a piece of jewelry with his name on it that also reflected her unique personal style. Everything she found was mass-produced and none of it reflected her own sense of style, so she made her own dog-style charm, stamped his name on it and hung it around her neck on a thick chain. Soon friends, family and strangers were asking for charms of their own and, with that, Jennifer Fisher Jewelry was born. She now has a full line of necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings, earrings, pendants, chains and men’s and children’s jewelry.
Jennifer’s jewelry has a hard-edged femininity that I find alluring and her skull purse and pillows echo the mood. It’s a look I’m willing to try out on the hallowed, spooky night of Halloween.
