You can change your style with the switch of a hoop with these clever jewelry kits from designer and metalsmith Lisa Monahan. Each Switch Gear kit comes with two core pieces. In the earring kit, there are two pairs of sterling silver lever-back earrings (one is brightly polished, one is oxidized). In the Teen kit, the core pieces are a single pair of lever-back earrings and one ball chain necklace.
Then the fun begins. These core pieces are the foundation for a fantastic assortment of interchangeable hoops, loops, chains, drops and charms made from all kinds of materials: silver, rhodium-plated brass, anodized aluminum, silicone, glass and more. When she was young, Lisa worked in her father’s Vermont hardware store. You can see that influence in some of her unique material choices – like silicone bands, washers and (our favorite) grommets. There are enough possible combinations to invent a new look every day of the year.
From casual to dressy and everything in between, Switch Gear kits give you a ton of options for expanding your (or your favorite tween’s) jewelry wardrobe. And you can feel good about looking good: Every kit sold supports survivors of domestic violence.
