If you ask Annie Costello Brown, the fringe just happened. “I’m not a conceptual thinker,” she says. “I like to think with my hands, you know?” The Los Angeles-based jewelry designer explains: “I was playing with a piece of leather, and the impulse seized me to start cutting and cutting.” Et voila! Whatever her creative process may have been, Costello Brown’s fringe necklaces find the designer bang-on trend this season. “I love to look at the couture, the runways,” acknowledges Costello Brown, who launched her line three years ago as a sideline while working at accessories brand Billykirk. “But that fringe thing happened a couple years ago. I don’t want to say I was ahead of the curve. I mean, I was just doing my own thing.” She’s also right in step with this season’s statement-necklace trend. The designer has quite a selection of, as she puts it, “wearable statement” pieces in her expansive Spring collection. “I like bold, but not in a crazy way,” she says. “I feel like I get that with the necklaces, and now I can focus more on bracelets and earrings, and maybe other accessories too. We’ll see what comes.”
