Current Obsession: Modern Shades of Grey

When looking at resources and pulls for our most recent fashion show at The Liberty Hotel I turned to Modern Shades of Grey to provide the earrings to coordinate with the designer's collection. I selected Modern Shades of Grey because the collection of earrings is eco-friendly in that they create gorgeous fashion forward jewelry using vintage beads-- perfect to match Yellow Clover's vintage inspired womenswear!

As I am obsessed with tassels, I selected many of the styles which featured long dangles. The earrings were an eclectic mix of pink, pastel jade green, and blue. Though I had seen Modern Shades of Grey before, I previously associated the brand with their funky shredded scarves and less with their delicately feminine jewelry.  When I picked up the fifteen styles from the designer I was instantly hooked and felt the need make a home for them in my own personal jewelry drawer. Part of the intrigue: each bead and style has a past history which seems to never go out of style! Check out some of my favorites below:

Light jade green and pearl tassels brightened up this dark vintage ensemble
Black and silver beaded tassels dangled off these vintage blue and cream beads
One of my most favorite pairs, these "rose gold" toned earrings were runway striking
My favorite pair, hard to place on the model and see them "go"!
Pink and gold drop stones featuring rose gold and pearl tassels
I modeled my second favorite pair, a speckled blue stone with green and gold byzantine beads
Designer Sarah Prost paired a black and white pair with her Yellow Clover ensemble

Check out the brand's website to see current offerings. They are always adding new styles based on the newest "finds" so check back often. Remember: each item is unique, get yours before it's gone!
