Lauren Abend is an NYC resident by way of London, Boston, and L.A., and will be introducing PAPERMAG readers to new designers who are pushing boundaries, as well as old favorites who always keep it fresh.

The past few seasons have seen jewelry grow to outrageous proportions: Bejeweled bibs, dangerous-looking pendants, and embellished chains. More has certainly meant more.
This Spring, however, change is in the air and jewelry designers are taking note. Inspired by everything from nature to geometry there are lots and lots of pretty little things to choose from this season. Wear a solitary piece for an air of easy sweetness, or go crazy and layer a few. Either way, give your neck a break and mix it up with some darling little pieces from Alyson Fox, Manu and Karen Walker, pictured above.
