What started as a summer hobby turned into a career for Jessica Hicks, who sold her gems at craft and art shows before studying jewelry and metals at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth. Now, the designer — whose works are loved by Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Biel, among others — hand makes every piece of jewelry she sells in her studio. We particularly love her delicate dangling earrings, chunky gold rings and stackable bangles, which you can pick up for $552 with our discount by clicking here.
