Jewelry pieces by KBD Designs are works of art that blend modern influences with traditional objects. These accessories are intended for those who live and breathe fashion as a form of self-expression. The leather cuff bracelets are hip and edgy, but look closely, and you will see that the embellishments convey their own symbolism. Studded or spiked, these handmade fashion accessories feature a central accent ranging from butterflies, eagle crests or skulls.
KBD black leather cuffs are made from quality leather. They are stylish accessories that can add interest to a drab outfit or add pizzazz to casual attire. If your taste tends toward grungy and provocative, these leather accessories will provide just the right touch of cool to keep you in style. Consider adding designer cuff bracelets to your accessories cabinet to give add oomph to your wardrobe when you need it.
There is more to KBD jewelry than leather accessories. Art-inspired necklaces abound. Pearls, beads and Swarovski crystals combine to create a backdrop for an elegant cross pendant. The lock and key necklace with a “members only” plate is witty and poetic at the same time while a variation on this theme hints at a secret “you hold the key” message. These necklaces can be worn short or extended, depending on your preference.
KBD’s artful designs are hand made with Love in Los Angeles. karin, the creative inspiration behind KBD is a passionate multi-dimensional artist, with a natural talent for design. “I have been designing forever” says karin. “As a child I would make paper purses and give them to my Mom, she would gush and tell me how fabulous they were and that she would save them for special occasions.”
Completely self taught, karin began creating at a very early age - decorating, inventing, and changing things whenever she could. She is also an established painter, poet, and vocal artist. “I have always been a creative person, it is just what I do”, says karin. Basically, we make the things that we love and just hope that other people will fall in love with them too. When we want something new we just make it. Fortunately, we have good taste. It is very important to us to make special timeless items that people can treasure.
I think people should have something to say when getting dressed... something that expresses themselves in an artful way. The images and symbols used in KBDs designs are meant to represent love, hope in ourselves and the future, romance, dreams, strength, fantasy, and protection...
