Yellow Owl Workshop’s Neon Pendant collection is the latest bit of decorative genius to come from the San Francisco-based studio. Founder Christine Schmidt employs a creative women-only team who have managed to get the products on to the racks of international jewelry stores, no small feat for the ambitious Kansas City native.
This line of bright necklaces comes to buyers in clear test tubes. The small containers are reminiscent of chemistry experiments, putting a spin on the trite cushioned boxes that are typically used to contain rings, earrings and gems.
On top of the inventive packaging, the Yellow Owl Workshop products are also durable and well-made. The colorful pendants feature gilded 22 karat gold, and are hung loosely on a dainty 18 karat gold-dipped chain.
