Badass Accessories to Get into Ass-Kicking Spirit

For about three years now, the punk rock meets biker trend has been bubbling and growing. A little leather here, some studs there - from studs to spikes, every season it gets a little more hardcore. In what could be a desperate search for what is different, edgy, and new, designers are reaching for the few things that haven’t been overdone yet - and macabre, morbid jewelry that doesn’t ooze over into tacky goth looks is one concept.

So we’re seeing bullet charms, spikes, daggers, guns, even axes - all a little daring, but there’s something very fun and high trend about these edgy tough-chic pieces. The accessories are being designed for both men and women, and for women the style is to pair these ass-kicking, in-your-face jewels with more feminine pieces. There’s nothing like a bullet necklace with a soft, frilly, lace dress! Stats for Weapon-Inspired Jewels Trending: Older & Average
