LAS Jewelry Fall 2010 Collection: Genus and the Species

November 22, 2010

Ever since I had encountered the dinosaur skeleton casts at the Natural Museum of History in New York City, it’s like one of them left a foot print in my heart. A Tyrannosaurus-sized foot print because I love them so. Stamped so hard in my brain, I still have the picture of the picture of me posing in front of a Brontosaurus wearing my favorite jumpsuit adorned with a bunny on it. I was only five. I wasn’t scared of the dinos, but my bunny was. My sister, Bec, and I would go on later to abandon the traditional notion of building snowmen and sandcastles, opting for the creation of friendly, powdery Stegosauruses.

And so I was happy to see my recollections meet the present when I saw the fierce dinosaur necklaces at the LAS Jewelry Fall 2010 Collection trunk show. The collection, Genus and the Species, was previewed at the Em & Co boutique in West Hollywood, California. This LA-based line is powered behind husband and wife team, Daniel and Lisa Soltis. They hand-make each piece locally using recycled chains, repurposed leathers, and other vintage materials. As you can see below, the pieces are personal, unique, and can conjure up a good story- or accessorize one to be.

You can view more pieces on the LAS Jewelry site and at Em & Co.
