Romantic, whimsical and effortlessly stylish, handmade jewelry by NYC-based Isshī is essential wearing for today’s fashionistas.
One look at the delightfully playful handmade jewelry from Isshī designer Rolly Robinson, and Chicago fashion guru Ikram Goldman was hooked. Awash in seashells, pearls, Swarovski crystals and colorful handpainted glass, each of Robinson’s delicate creations seems as if it could have washed up on some distant exotic shore. Just as important, notes Goldman, is that Robinson’s collection is sophisticated enough to impress the most discerning of A-listers.

“I love the play on color and pearls,” she says, “and I love the sense of humor with the animals and shapes.” Versatility is key as well, she explains.

“These pieces can be worn very dressy or very casual on a young person or someone much more sophisticated, depending on the outfit.” From stunning necklaces to brooches, earrings and more—all eco-conscious and made to order in NYC— Robinson has established himself as a designer to watch, and Isshī as possibly the collection for summer 2022. 15 E.
