Actually his work has been featured in editorials for years...he's just kept a low profile as an artist. He didn't even have a website until a couple of years ago. There was also an article/interview with him in a recent W Magazine.

Currently coveting the Masai necklace with jet and florescent yellow crystals, bidding on a Faux Real cuff on eBay, and planning to purchase a bangle and earrings from NAP.

A talented jewelry designer, but not at all the originator he claims to be. Chanel was tangling pearls and combining them with paste and rhinestones since the 1930's. The bikers were wearing layered chains and skulls in the 1940's and 1950's which influenced the punks in the 1970's. The punks tangled chains and safety pins which started Binns on his merry way soon after. I guess he's the first designer with the audacity to so heavily borrow from other people's invention.

^He definitely takes those inspirations, though, and combines them in a completely unexpected and original way, which is why I adore his work. There really is nothing else out there like it, though I must say some of his necklaces remind me of Justin Giunta's work for Subversive.

Net-a-porter.com and kabiri.co.uk have quite a fabulous collection of current Tom Binns dessigns at the moment. My favorites are the yellow neon bead necklace and the asymmetric all-clear rhinestone bracelet.

GO FOR BROKE | TOM BINNS NECKLACE

What: Tom Binns necklace
How much: $750
Who: Anne Christensen, T Magazine’s women’s fashion director.

Years ago, one of the first market appointments I went on as an assistant to Grace Coddington at Vogue, was to the downtown loft of the jewelry maker Tom Binns. I remember walking into this big space and trying to get my bearings — anarchy oil painting on the wall, skull rings (way before everyone was doing them) and then a booming Irish brogue: “Hey what are you doing here?” I was terrified but I held my ground — and have been enamored ever since. Who knew a jewelry maker could be so cool, treating precious stones and found objects with equal esteem? It is Binns’s irreverence that I love most. He works from his gut and each piece he designs — from the rose thorn earrings to fluorescent spray-painted watches (yes, even the faces) — has a punk sensibility. But it’s his necklaces that I think are truly worth the cash.

My favorite one — with colorful diamonds and a few pieces of sea glass that dangle down the décolleté — was a gift from my husband. Every time I wear it, I get a million compliments. I’m not sure if it is, in fact, a one-of-a-kind, but it certainly looks that way. At a glance, you hardly realize that it was cobbled together from found glass and pieces of old necklaces, but that is what I love about it. It’s not too precious, it’s original and it brightens up any shirt, dress, whatever.

The piece pictured here is from Binns’s Faux Real collection, but if you want to drop some serious change, check out his Couture pieces. Moss in New York has one for $20,000. It defies rationalization on all levels.

^Thanks so much for that! I actually much prefer his pieces to "real" jewelry.

His stuff is what I would splurge on if I won the lottery. I love it. Definitely some modern classics in the making.
