Divine Jewelry: Miracle Icons by Mary Jo Pane
Mary Jo Pane's inspiring jewelry combines antique religious icons with a chic tarnished feel to bring a sense of coolness to spirituality. Her line has been featured in every top magazine: Elle, Rolling Stone, GQ, People, New York Times and more, with A-list clients including Bruce Springsteen, Anderson Cooper, and Patti Smith (see below for more). Put your faith back into the religion of fashion by going to Barney's Co-Op to purchase one of the heavenly designs.
What inspired you to begin a collection of religious icons to wear as jewelry?
A combination of being in NYC in the weeks after 9/11 attacks and a friends serious illness. I wanted to go back to my childhood make the saint jewelry that I had worn and make it cool.
