valentines day gift jewelryI recently read that technology might be killing the jewelry industry, specifically the brick-and-mortar fine jewelry establishments. This was somewhat depressing because I live in the core of the Los Angeles jewelry district, but I won’t take you down that road.

If you weren’t already familiar with The 2 Bandits, get ready. The San Francisco-based line by designer Tamar Wilder uses gorgeous geometric shapes with a Southwestern boho influence. Today, the line launches its Spring 2014 collection, inspired by the Northern Lights (it’s a natural electrical phenomenon that features streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky). “Many cultures believe that the Northern Lights are the appearance of “dancing souls”–Mother Nature at its raddest. I wanted to capture that in a way that could be enjoyed every day, from every angle,” explains Wider

Shot by photographer Jason Lee Parry in Silverlake, take a peek at their Spring 2014 lookbook above – a mix of its signature look with shots of mystical inspiration – or view the entire lookbook on their website!
