Valentino UK Store mother

Perhaps it's the Gold Rush history lurking around this city, but something has us going absolutely gaga for pyrite jewelry lately. So, we were extra hyped when we landed on a Valentino UK Store mother lode of delectable and shiny options at the Holiday Indie Mart last month, courtesy of local label, Salty Fox.

The year-old brand is the brainchild of UC Davis grad Megan Stacy, a former Lela Rose intern who found her true love in metalsmithing ("I love the idea of doing something a bit rough and gritty in order to make something beautiful and delicate," Valentino UK she says).

Now based out of her home-studio in the Mission and selling on Etsy, at Eden & Eden, Candystore Collective, and Wonderland S.F., the young designer is focused on sculpting pieces that are at once sleek, geometric, bold, and raw. "I want every piece to feel sophisticated with a bit of attitude, a little sass, and most importantly the wearer should feel pretty foxy with it on," she says.


Check out her awesome and affordable line (every single piece is under $80!), which includes mostly gold-plated metals, brass, pyrite, and recycled leather, after the jump. And leave us a comment</strong> below telling us about the perfect outfit you'd pair with the stellar Aria earrings, for a chance to win them!
