Analoguettes, I'm very pleased to present Faire Collection's new fall / winter '14 line, Midnight Collection, inspired by the French Belle Epoque period (1890-1910)– one of my absolute fave eras, for fashion, art, and eccentric characters.

Some of you may remember that I reviewed Faire last year. I love this brand because they are actually creating jewelry and accessories that modern women want to wear, and doing it with fair trade practices, traditional artisan techniques, and sustainable materials, like tagua and acai seeds (native to the Ecuadorian Amazon), and upcycled bullhorn.
The Midnight Collection is the 14th full collection of handmade jewelry from six year old Faire Collection, led by founder and CEO Amanda Judge. I'm coveting every one of these pieces, with their rich textures and ornate materials. When I saw the editorial photos, I immediately thought of the beautiful portraits of courtesans and socialites (including our girl Sarah Bernhardt), and the less traditional work of Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
