Kendra Bridelle’s Wings of Fire collection represents a fiery evolution from the sweetness of her LusciousS line. Made in 18k gold vermeil with crystals and gemstone accents, 32 SKUs of sword and flame motifs embody Bridelle’s current soul-searching mood. “Sometimes we forget who we are or who we can be,” she says. “[This is] me trying to fly.” Retail prices range from $295 to $1,395.
