Following in the footsteps of Nicole Richie and Erin Wasson, 90210 star Shenae Grimes is taking her red carpet experience and turning it into gold. Grimes has paired with Cut & Run London to release a series of limited-edition jewelry pieces inspired by California’s desert wonderland.
The range includes key-shaped pendants, long earrings made of metal-cast feathers, and braided rings with tiny charms in the middle. Grimes co-designed each piece along with her fiance, male model Josh Beech who owns Cut & Run with musician Dean Richardson.
Grimes told Elle Magazine, “I live in Los Angeles, and Josh is from London,” says Grimes, “So we combined his London edge with my L.A. vibes. We really just like creating pieces that we’d both like to wear and can’t find anywhere else.”
