Highlow Jewelry – Red Necklace
Brooklyn-based textile designer Ellen Van Dusen and LA jewelry designer Sonya Gallardo of Highlow united in this jewelry collaboration. Dusen Dusen is best known for an endlessly colorful collection of cheerful graphic prints while Highlow is best-known for a polymer clay and silk cord necklace that’s been marked, painted, and sculpted into different, neutral-palette iterations. But when the two are paired together, something magical happens: Gallardo’s necklace is rendered even more poppy and graphic while Dusen Dusen’s prints — which are far too statement-making for dainty gold jewelry — meet their match. When the two designers began noticing more and more people pairing the two items on their own, they knew something special was brewing, and a collaboration was born.
