When it comes to bird-inspired fashion, the art is in the details.

By Phoenix Tarampi As you’ve probably noticed in our
October issue, birds are a major trend this season. From fabric prints to movies and from the runway to the living room, our feathery friends are making their way into the limelight.
Meet one contributor to the lovely world of bird-inspired fashion: Alicia Nassardeen, designer and owner of
Talonalia jewelry. Her work includes necklaces and earrings that are cast from real claws and skulls of magpies, sparrows, and even owls. While I am a fan of her
Owlet necklace, Nassardeen has many elegant yet stark pieces to choose from in her unique assortment of bird-inspired jewelry.  Her work isn’t meant to become part of a trend, but to contribute to the timelessness of fashion in the form of jewelry.
