In celebration of the Wizard of Oz’s 70th anniversary, jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino has partnered with the film’s studio, Warner Brothers, to create a “My Pretty” collection.
Tarantino made her name creating bright, bold accessories often based on childhood favorites like Hello Kitty and Barbie, so the partnership with Warner Brothers to commemorate another classic piece of pop culture is a natural one. The collection is Wizard of Oz with a twist - it’s inspired by a hip Los Angeles girl on an urban adventure.
The pieces are very youthful, evoking the feel of a slightly pricier version of the baubles you used to fish out of your costume trunk to play princesses as a child - and probably best left to those under thirty. That said, the Good Witch Long Pendant Necklace (at left) and the Multibead Necklace - Wicked (at right) are adorable, with their cartoon renditions of these iconic Wizard of Oz characters.
