Year Of The Vintage Cyborg, Laura Lombardi Jewelry

I first caught a glimpse of Laura Lombardi‘s stunning work thanks to a rad Tinseltown publicist I like to call Garberella, whose personal jewelry vault is to drool over, literally. Being a huge fan of anything Mad Max, I enjoyed Lombardi’s designs; they reminded me of vintage, simplified cyborg jewelry using old school materials: fine metals, brass and copper. Thumbs way up. Color and tone vary due to the bad-ass nature of all the materials used to formulate my top picks. The following descriptions, pulled directly from Lombardi’s shopping cart, are like music to my ears. Let’s start with a sold out piece – you know – just to tease you a bit:
