Old world craft meets modern style with jewelry artist Desiree Chow’s collection, Foxes and Robbers. Since 2009, she has been creating finely handcrafted bead embroidery jewelry in her Oakland studio.

Inspired by the vintage, nature, and the needs of today's women, Foxes and Robbers designs reflect an aesthetic of classical decadence fused with modern sensibilities. With much of the collection comprised of one-of-a-kind pieces, you’re sure to find the perfect necklace to suit your personal style.

Despite the appearance of weightiness, all pieces are deceivingly light in weight. They can be worn comfortable all day and into the night to fit the lifestyles of today's busy and on-the-go professionals who still adore breathing their strong and creative personalities into their daily wardrobe.

Pieces from the line range from $65 for the Memento Mori and Little Treasures collections to $120-135 for those crafted from gorgeous natural stone. Desiree even collaborated on a collection of one-of-a-kind necklaces featuring the colorful, abstract watercolor paintings of fellow Oakland artist Jared McGriff.

View the Foxes and Robbers collection on October 8th at Fremont Park! Until then, connect with Desiree on Instagram or Facebook to get a sneak peek of the perfect piece to take home.
