It's the bunny necklace at left, yes she's really only launched one thing, and it goes on sale at Dover Street Market and Colette this week. The bunny, whose bottom half is basically a fancy safety pin, is made from 18-karat gold with a diamond eye and retails for $1,325 - probably three or four times the amount her "Daddy, I want a pony" belt sold for ten years ago so here's hoping for a Katie by Katie Hillier line very soon.

But it was only recently that the British designer turned her sights on a different goal: creating her own label. Fresh on the heels of her win as Accessories Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2009, Katie set to work on Hillier, her eponymous jewelry line. Mixing luxury with fun, Hillier is adorable, unexpected, and highly covetable. Click through for our convo with Katie.
