AlohaRag of Hawaii describes Tom Binns as an “an Irish designer full of anger”. Frankly, I can see where that is coming from. Whether his designs are really “showcasing his creativity and boldness, while at the same time creating plenty of controversy” is really up to the eye of the beholder to judge. To me, I am not quite sure what demographic niche Tom is trying to market his creations to. I don’t see a pale goth girl in black wearing golden dagger earrings, nor do I want to picture an elegant towngirl sport the bombastic Mickey pendant on a girl’s night out. Perhaps, it’s geared towards the modern rebel who has called out her personal Jihad on those facets of life that treat her unfairly? I don’t know. Maybe I am ignorant. Please tell if I am.
Prices range from $154 for the earrings, to a stunning $340 for the grendade keychain. Available via Aloha Rag.
