Stacks on Stacks

By Myka

So the focus has shifted to my hands. Rings, bracelets, watches, nail art….gives me a bit of bling around my face. I gesture with my  hands a lot when I’m talking. Guess that’s what happens when you marry an Italian…That being said, as of late I’ve been piling it on. 3 rings on one hand? Yes please. Body chains? Certainly! Turquoise, gold and diamonds? Why not?

I’ve found that the more delicate the pieces are, the more you can mix without feeling over accessorized. In my ongoing obsession with finding great pieces, I find that I go back to two places time and time again. Jacquie Aiche & Catbird NYC. Both have beautiful pieces that are delicate, inspired by nature and just overall cool. Neither Kadi or myself are ever without our Jacquie Aiche finger bracelets and lately I have added some first knuckle rings to the mix from Catbird. Add all that to my Godmother’s and her sister’s wedding bands that never leave my fingers, a first anniversary gift and a colored ring or two and I’ve got a righteous mix.

Myka has always been enamored with beautiful things and making things beautiful. It’s what led her to Paris to study at Parsons School of Design, and subsequently landed her in New York. The desire to move beyond clothing resulted in working as a trend forecaster and stylist – curating trends and creating beautiful environments. Myka has lived in New York, Paris, Munich and Italy, tried her hand at furniture design and worked as an interior stylist and creative consultant and most recently a certified yoga instructor. A serial entrepreneur, her journey has led her to explore and discover different parts of herself. Eventually she landed in Europe where she spent several years before returning to her hometown of Atlanta where she opened WAX, Atlanta’s first waxing only studio and then BUFF, Atlanta’s first natural nail bar. She now resides in Venice, CA with her son and their rescue dog Piper.
