Best Bet: Wendy Nichol’s Spiked Hoops


Indie accessories designer Wendy Nichol opened her first store in Soho this week, a 400-square-foot space smelling temptingly of leather. Though she's best known for her fringed handbags, the new spot also features a handful of exclusive new jewelry designs not yet available on her e-commerce site. These gold vermeil earrings offer a cool twist on dated hoops: The thin gold rings are classically feminine, while the spiked centerpiece adds a slight edge.
