There is a rare occasion that the most demure and nearly boho of styles meet. And it’s just the way with Sennod Jewelry Designs. The New Orleans based designer, hosting a trunk show at Mahtook Interiors today and tomorrow, has done just such a thing.
The bulk of Michelle McKeon’s designs are centered around chains that can be fitted with varying pendants. The chains are the foundation and have a kind of vintage vibe that will truly work on grandma, mom and daughter. The star of the work — the vignettes. There’s a tried and true stock of pieces, but it’s the newest looks that caught this IND Styler’s eye.
The Vintage Collection boasts the most springy of choices with an art-deco inspired, flower and crystal-detailed piece bordered with green stones — just the thing for summer’s white dresses and watermelon-hued tops. Also in the Vintage Collection, I found a favorite in the antique buckle in silver — worn with a distressed t-shirt and boyfriend jeans or a buttoned up cardigan — it’s just the sort of versatile piece that speaks to the breadth of Sennod’s appeal.
Speaking of buckles, another buckle of gold in the Roman Replicas collection begs for layering — picture it with a copper hued necklace and a few of silver as well. And then there is the collection that captured my heart most thoroughly — Persian Pendants.
The Persian-inspired pieces are kind of a Cleopatra goes boho with brightly colored gems and designs that beg for spring’s funkier wares. Each delicate enough to layer with other pieces (how fabulous with a feather necklace or right now arrow necklace) and bold enough to go solo.
The trunk show at Mahtook Interiors on Coolidge is Thursday and Friday and you get 25 percent off a chain to start your o-so-diverse collection of Sennod pieces.
