It might be thoroughly uncool to describe a partnership between jeweler Pamela Love and upcycled denim brand RE/DONE as cool, but that’s exactly what it is.

Ms. Love’s rustic baubles, often inspired by the American Southwest, adorn the knuckles and earlobes of creative types from Bushwick to Silver Lake. And chances are, those same stylish girls also own a pair of distressed Levi’s, specifically ones that have been artfully repurposed by denim masters Sean Barron and Jamie Mazur.

But, in some ways (and somewhat ironically) fashion gets even weirder when it serves a specific purpose. Take a look at these outré designs we’ve noticed recently to see what we mean.
