Let's learn more about Manic Trout (from manictrout.com):
Locally and hand made, artisanal jewelry with a vintage edge: Manic Trout creates looks that are colorful, unique and incorporate unusual combinations of materials, textures and styles. Materials are what inspire the jeweler, designer and independent artist behind these handmade pieces: Sierra Bailey.
Her unerring eye for whimsical design comes to expression through unlikely elements such as vintage buttons and textiles, chandelier crystals, bottle caps, Venetian glass, and gunmetal wire and aluminum chains. Manic Trout balances the industrial with the beautiful: perfectly calibrated, vibrant retro chic.
Marrying the old and the new….novel expressions of texture and color…the classic with the unexpected: the Indie Manic Trout jewelry brand brings a certain funky finesse to a clichéd medium. Sierra riffs on traditional motifs, a 33 year old who puts her individual stamp on vintage and one-of-a-kind, with a quirky and individual twist.
“I create handmade, unique pieces that make you feel special and stand out in the crowd: modern meets vintage chic. Manic Trout makes great statement jewelry for everyday wear, which shouldn’t mean ordinary,” she said. “It’s perfect for in-between occasions, of which life mostly consists: not super casual, not super formal. My designs all work with jeans, suits, cocktail dresses: when worn, they help make every day seem delightfully spontaneous.”
Indeed, her slogan says it all: Jewelry for Life’s Manic Moments.
