I recently purchased an ear cuff by a must see designer, Maria Francesca Pepe. I just discovered her a few months ago after Bazaar magazine featured some of her designs. Check out her stuff on www.MariaFrancescaPepe.com or on www.avenue32.com. Her jewelry is entirely crafted by Italian designers based out of small factories. Her entire collection has a "cool girl" feel with an edgy vibe.
