The Tough Girl Collection is hand sculpted and fabricated in fully or partially oxidized sterling silver with accents of 14K and 18K Yellow and Rose Gold as well as Burnish-Set White, Black and Colored Diamonds and a variety of Colored Stones The Inspiration for this line was born out of the need to make something completely organic with hints of fine jewelry skills and details. The pieces are rugged and casual in feel. They have a rebellious side breaking away from the traditional fine jewelry aesthetic. They are reminiscent of an artifact with a dangerous edge thus the name Tough Girl. While the organic nature of the Tough Girl Collection lies in contrast to the austerity of the Geo Collection, the two are able to co-mingle flawlessly, sharing similarities in their metals, finishes and stones.
The Geo Collections is cast and hand assembled in sterling silver, 14K Yellow and 14K Rose Gold with accents of white and black diamonds. The Inspiration for this line came from the desire to embody simple geometric shapes in a clean and elegant manner. Different finishes allow the pieces to be dressed down, if desired, while the touch of diamonds lends a classic and refined look to each piece. The traditional shape of the Geo Collection is juxtaposed with the different finishes giving them a hint of mischief and allowing them to pair pleasingly with the Tough Girl Collection
High fashion meets industrial chic as BC strikes the perfect blend of geometric and organic shapes in her two Spring/Summer Collections Geo and Tough Girl; these pieces pair well with everything from diamond studs to leather wrap bracelets.
