I met Caroline Ventura, and her equally awesome husband, Michael, in line to get into a birthday party several years ago. (Yeah, we were in line to get into a birthday party, which in retrospect, is strange on all fronts.) Naturally, we got to talking because Caroline has rad style, rad hair—and she’s funny and cool. Beyond being an occasional model and hair stylist (she does the awesome hair posts with Jamie Beck for Cup of Jo), Caroline makes jewelry—all by hand. Brvtvs (pronounced Brutus) is packed with pieces that are simple, beautiful, prime for layering, and all the sort of stuff you can wear every day. Case in point: I’ll be sleeping in these Magna Vectis earrings (for those of you who like to mix your earrings up, she sells them individually).
