I feel a million memories when I reflect upon my childhood and curiosity towards my mother’s jewelry box. It was tucked away carefully in her closet, second shelf in the center. Perfect level for my height to reach. She was always, and still is, open to share anything with me, but there was one rule; put the little gems back where they belonged at the end of the day. I was still too young to own and really care for pieces of gold. But every time my hands had a hold of the bronze hexagon box, I felt an instant joy. The stained glass and floral design—almost reminiscent of a church window contained everything I loved. Inside there were brooches, rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. One in particular that I could not resist were a pair of delicate, gold triangle earrings. So classic.
It led me to a love for everything triangle-related. Geometric shapes always scream eclectic and interesting to me, whether they are existent in accessories and clothing, to skyscrapers and furniture. Looking over the 2013 Pre-Fall Accessories, triangles seemed to have exploded across pointy toe shoes to sharp studded necklaces. They certainly make a point.
