The backyard is in bloom, the terrace is overflowing with potted herbs and flowers—it’s time for a summer garden party and a reason to add a couple of new pieces to your warm-weather wardrobe.

Loren Hope’s fanciful floral jewelry and hair accessories with a retro vibe, created in Rhode Island, caught our attention. Loren’s fascination with costume jewelry took hold in childhood, when she opened jewelry boxes in her grandmother’s thrift shop to examine the treasures inside. She is also inspired by nature.

“During the warmer months here in New England, I spend most of my weekends in my flower garden or shopping for more flowers at the nurseries,” she explains. “Since I was a little girl, I have always loved spending time outdoors and have been captivated by the colors found in nature.” Her feminine creations are versatile and engaging. And Loren has, dare we say it, made the brooch chic again! lorenhope.com
