Grad Joe Vilaiwan Creates "Oz The Great And Powerful" Jewelry Collection Inspired By The Film

Joe

Fine jewelry designer and FIDM Graduate Joe Vilaiwan has created a show-stopping, limited edition collection of couture necklaces, cuffs, and earrings in honor of the new Disney film, Oz The Great and Powerful, starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams. A necklace and earring set (pictured above), for example, were inspired by the poppy fields seen in the film, while other pieces mimic the shapes of the Emerald City architecture. 

One of his favorites is a bad-witch-inspired mother-of-pearl necklace with a dark, looping thicket of beads in the form of shimmering feathers. "I love being able to translate soemthing that is so magical, that's illusion, to be something that you can actually capture and wear in real life," he recently told Disney magazine.

The new collection, in partnership with Disney Consumer Products, will be available at the FIDM Museum Shop, Palm Springs Art Museum, Mariel Boutique in Denver, Franklin Barry Gallery in Indianapolis, and more. Oz The Great and Powerful opens on March 8, 2013.
