As I've said before, I'm not someone who wears a ton of jewelry. But when I spied Parisian designer Aurelie Bidermann's Do Brasil bracelet, it became my latest conquest. While I jumped on the friendship bracelet bandwagon last fall with one of editor-cum-designer Jenny Kang's rhinestone styles laced with rhinestones, I can't help but covet Bidermann's Do Brasil gold and cotton thread version. Why? Because it's sturdy, structured and bold without losing the kitschy appeal of the traditional style. I'll wear it alone or with my watch--simple, but still fun. Britt, on the other hand, is dying for one of Bidermann's lace cuffs. Which do you prefer? Click through to see more of the designer's latest collections.
