If you made delicate accessories, probably the last name you'd ever come up with would be Hairy Socks jewelry. But maybe that's just how artists' minds work. It must be how Ruta Kiskyte's mind works.

Designer Ruta Kiskyte shows a good amount of whimsy in her dainty but detailed designs. Tiny hands, balloons, strands of hair and a few morbid additions appear in all of the Hairy Socks jewelry and accessories.

Implications - Consumers are no longer attracted to subtle styles but want more daring designs. Products that feature a bolder aesthetic are appealing to those who want to make a statement with their style. Companies trying to increase their appeal could focus on this aspect when coming out with their new items.
