The vikings are coming
Put away your girlie trinkets, warrior chic is all the rage these days.
Well, at least according to Meagan Howard, designer behind Sleep Standing Up. This Vancouver-based jewellery line borrows from Viking culture with a collection inspired by their weaponry. Handcrafted in oxidized sterling silver, these sharp geometric objects of dangerous beauty have us thinking medieval thoughts. With the armor-like Holy Cross Ring ($170), the long and regal Saxon Breastplate necklace ($240), and the ritualistic Amulet pendant ($190), we are all set to embrace our inner urban warriors. —Anya Georgijevic
