Bringing together the “wearable vices” from the original Molecular Addictions collection and synthesizing them to create visually arresting SuperMolecules, the six necklaces comprising Designer Drugs represent a collection of pieces even more stunning than their derivatives.
From the delicate simplicity of Spliff, to Candy Flipping and Coffee and Cigarettes’ understated intricacy, to the strikingly exquisite Overdose statement necklace, each of these unapologetically bold pieces create such a delicious piece of eye-catching neck candy, you’re guaranteed to turn every head you pass. This fantastical new collection lets you enjoy a spectacular trip in a way that leaves a lasting impression without the icky flashbacks.
The pieces were really fun to design too, it was kind of like experimenting with complicated little puzzle pieces to find the perfect eye-catching wearable combination. The Overdose Necklace in particular took an insane number of hours to design (I’ve actually been working on it since May 2012!) and the ‘pile’ of failed designs was ridiculous.
I’m so stoked with how it all came together in the end because there were certainly some sleep deprived times where I didn’t think I was going to be able to pull it all off. I hope you enjoy the Designer Drugs Collection and the 'fantasy laboratory' themed images as much as I enjoyed creating them!
