Lulu Frosts Another Layer
“I started out the [100-Year] collection with this real tour de force necklace to show off a century of history within one piece,” says Lulu Frost designer Lisa Salzer. She is referencing the $1,925 necklace—a mash-up of materials sourced from various eras and cultures, including Czech glass, Bakelite, and Art Deco glass from the thirties—she debuted in April. Since the moment for minimalism seems to have passed, Salzer has followed suit with more of her bold baubles. On Wednesday, she launches expanded offerings from the collection, earrings ($505) and bracelets ($576), on ModaOperandi.com.
“Just like the necklace, these pieces showcase all different decades and how beautifully they can harmonize together,” Salzer says of her vintage gems, each made from at least six different antique elements, like cut steel from the Victorian era, vintage buckles from the 1890′s, and Bakelite from the sixties. Salzer spanned many decades for her latest bijoux, but for her Spring 2012 outing, the designer says she’s stuck on the sixties’ surf culture.
