Necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in decorative or spare styles--giving women two distinct ways to accessorize autumns' Russian embellishment, contemporary minimalism, and other fashion trends.

This season, Rena Tom's jewellery takes its stylistic cue from views expressed in Bauhaus-influencing Austrian architect Adolf Loos' seminal essay "Ornament and Crime." The essay, which covers concepts that also led to Modernism in architecture, suggests that it's a crime to waste the effort needed to add ornamentation (to jewelry, for example) when the ornamentation would cause the object to soon go out of style.

You Decide
Rena Tom neatly evades the “Ornament vs. Crime” debate and declares a democratic view, instead creating for Fall 2005 not one but TWO ingenious jewelry collections, each allowing you to choose, mix and match your own look from very different points of style:

Ornament--for those who desire pretty, decorative, colorful pieces;Crime--for those who crave spare, sleek, timeless, everyday designs.

Rena continues to explore materials such as colored leather, crocheted wire, and polished ebony wood in her work and is as well introducing limited-edition 22K pieces this season. She handcrafts each piece to stand alone as a study of contrasts, creating unusual pairings like color and motion, or texture and light.
