The Spring 2015 fashion forecast shows a high chance of clever whimsy in just about all the ways you can imagine. We’re particularly tickled by the playful, animal-inspired pieces appearing in both haute couture and street style. Just look at these darling Bamboo Panda Flats!
Especially fun are the animal-inspired jewelry pieces we’ve curated below. There’s a little something for any style, any budget.
While we're on the subject of rabbits, isn't this sterling silver rabbit necklace beautiful? The pendant was created using the "lost-wax casting technique," an ancient method of precision molding.

Animal motifs certainly aren't new, especially when it comes to brooches. Brooches are a great way to play with a trend without committing to more substantial investments. Pieces like this 1960's vintage turtle brooch can serve as your link between the fashion of a bygone era and the trends of today.
