Do not underestimate the humble staple. Wiry and shape-shifting, it fastens form to function, line to curve, ornament to adornment. Jewelry designers such as Kathleen Whitaker, Ana Khouri, Gabriela Artigas, and Jennifer Wang elevate and refine this familiar shape with precious metals, while Sylvain Le Hen combines its industrial precision with sculptural proportions to create striking barrettes and hairpins. The results are gleaming yet subtle everyday accents: in a word, staples.
