Heather Hawkins is an Los Angeles-based designer whose eponymous accessories label was born quite unexpectedly. After damaging a handbag while trying to wash it, she decided to deconstruct and redesign it with her own unique creative approach. Receiving admiration from friends and strangers, she embarked on an exciting venture to launch her own line. Today, Heather Hawkins jewelry has become a must-have in savvy fashionistas' wardrobes. Expect a striking line of 18-karat gold-plated necklaces, cuffs, earrings and rings adorned with colorful beading, featuring onyx, turquoise, lapis and even natural bone.
