I attend numerous sample sales and, for the most part, I come across the same ole same ole. However, at a recent Sassy City Chicks event I discovered something quite cool – Lok’d Jewelry. Created by Jase Calderon, Lok’d’s cutting edge designs are achieved by applying a reverse engineering technique on a common childhood staple – the Lego. These avant garde pieces fuse punk rock glamour with Urban pseudo bling and range from deconstructed pyramid rings to dramatic bib necklaces to flirtatious disco-esque earrings. Jase’s creations provide a fresh, funky way to show off your love for Legos. Plus, with the holidays around the corner you'll score brownie points in the gifting department. You can buy these nifty gems at gadgizdesigns.etsy.com or pick them up in person at the Thread Show LA this Sunday or at RAWards on Thursday, November 17th. If you happen to attend the RAWards be sure to cast your vote for Jase Calderon as best accessory designer.
