Having a seriously nostalgic moment for the 1950’s crystal glimmer-ball beads in this photo…these earrings left my hands over a year ago, and I am STILL searching for more of these fantastic beads:)

~BangBang Bijoux Wedding~ 

As many of you know, at BangBang Bijoux we absolutely adore objects from the past. The history, complexity, and rarity of materials from yesterday add an element of curiosity and mystery that cannot be duplicated by newer materials. 

This wedding collection will consist of one-of-a-kind pieces, made from our favorites: the materials that hold the greatest magic, and drama.

~BangBang Bijoux Wedding~ will be made from the finest vintage pearls, semi-precious stones, and rare and fascinating oddities from all over the globe. 

Please check back on October 25th for the launch of our new line of bridal delights!

Love,

Rachel & The Team

I’m about to shoot a new lookbook for the fall, so naturally I felt a bit reminiscent about my first photoshoot that I did many moons ago. I’m even working with the same wonderful and amazing photographer, Aspen Zettle. She will be shooting up a storm in my outlandish little studio next week. I cannot wait!!!!!!!!

The studio has officially morphed from the ever gorgeous 1960’s yellow and brown to a much more eye-friendly shade of bluish green. Ahhhhhhh.

If you’ve met me, you’ve probably heard me say this about a million times: I LOVE The 124th Street Grande Market!!!!!

Not only is it completely ecclectic and charming, but the food vendors are absolutely amazing. Come for dinner, visit Duchess, and come say hello to the crazy bling lady (moi).

I will be under a very sparkly tent filled with jewels, and munching down on tasty treats tomorrow from 4-8pm.

I am having a bit of a love affair with bracelets this week.

Typically, I’d catagorize myself as an earring lady. I often feel as though my head might fly away if I’m not wearing something oversized, and boombastic in it’s flashiness. I don’t often wear large earrings with a large necklace, but with a large bracelet I feel that anything goes. 

These bracelets are extremely limited with only 15 in total, and the parts came from my last factory rummaging trip!

Hello lovely friends!

I’m back from my enchanting buying trip and excited to embrace all of the summer shows with heap-loads of new treasures. This week is going to be a busy one!

Come visit me this Thursday from 4pm-8pm at the Grande Market on 124th street, or this Saturday from 10am-4pm at The Mercer Collective.

I will have both new goodies, and a bunch of old treasures on sale.

Can’t wait to see everyone soon!

Getting the studio all packed up and ready for Make It this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I can’t wait to leap into spring at such a lovely location. If you haven’t visited Make It at this new location, it’s absolutely worth the extra treck. Not only are the flowers stunning, but the food and Chai drinks are a decadent addition to an already delightful experience. It’s no secret: the Enjoy Center is my happy place.

It’s been quite a busy spring. I’ve been re-vamping my little studio AND rebranding. More of an endeavour than I had initially predicted. I’ve also added a new family member to my household: a super-cute, overly affectionate kitty who gets into absolutely everything. Needless to say, he will not be one of my studio helpers, although I might be tempted to create some sort of blinged out kitty collar…

I hope that everyone is enjoying the sudden burst of sun, and can’t wait for your visits this weekend!

Getting the studio all packed up and organized for the big show this weekend.

If you’re going to be out and about this Saturday, stop over and visit me at the charmingly ecclectic Mercer Collective from 10am-4pm in the lower level of the Mercer Building…I will have all of by brightest, newest, most sparkly jewel concoctions on display for spring!!!

See everyone in a few days.
