What I love most about traveling in Asia is the discovery of new designers. The latest trove of treasures to catch my eye: Venna, a line of eclectic necklaces designed by Central St. Martin graduate Patrick Wong. Applying an array of Swarovski crystals, punky chains, pearls, and beads, some in neon brights and others in neutral metals, Patrick’s big-impact pieces are packed with a sense of dynamism.
It’s all about an energetic mix; I love Venna’s playful use of neon strings with fancy crystal designs. The explosive silver- or gold-needle necklaces with dancing crystals (I bought the gold version) are my favorites – this fringy piece is like a party on my neck! You can’t help but want to shake and shimmy with this fiesta dangling from your throat. Latch one on and feel like the hostess with the mostess, stat.
