In our pre and re-cycling era, it’s no surprise that the common nail can be put to uses other than, say, holding your house together. Here are a few nail inspired pieces of jewelry that look surprisingly sleek and functional, with just that hint of urban chic.
The brand recently re-released Juste un Clou, designed by Aldo Cipullo. The designer has created magic for the house of Cartier since 1969; he turned a simple nail into a symbol of strength and beauty. “My jewelry is both functional and touchable, sleek and warm. It can be worn 24 hours a day without any problems in change of clothes.”
