At Sophie’s Closet, we are proud to carry designs by the Los Angeles-based designer CC Skye.

Hailed as one of the hottest young accessory designers by many fashion journalists and stylists, CC Skye is also a celebrity darling. Famous trendsetters like Olivia Palermo, Rihanna, Nicole Richie, and Sienna Miller are all CC Skye fans.

A true California free spirit, CC Skye began designing while living in a mud hut in Nepal on a study abroad program. It may seem like a crazy thing to do, considering her wardrobe consisted of mostly hiking boots and camping gear. She missed the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle and began making dresses and jewelry with the help of local seamstresses and metalsmiths. Upon returning to LA, it was clear to her that design was something she wanted to do as a career. Some things are just meant to be.

CC Skye first became known for her wrap bracelets that mixed metal with leather. It became a must-have item for many Hollywood trendsetters like Nicole Richie, who was seen wearing it numerous times.

CC Skye is famous for designing very glam rock, almost punk pieces that can also be very elegant. Jessica Alba loves (as do we) the spikey “Starburst” bangle with crystals. It adds just a little bit of a hard edge to an otherwise very cute and casual ensemble. Same goes with the “Gigi” spike hoops, which are sitting at the cusp between Hollywood glamour and 80s punk.

Her pave bracelets and earrings are very glamorous and girlie pieces. Whitney Port, everyone’s favourite “nice girl” from The City, wore the Pave Stud Bracelet layered with multiple bangles to spice up her very simple T-shirt ensemble. To add even more glamour, one can pair them with the Pave Stud Earrings which are also drop dead gorgeous on their own. Of course, there are also drop pave earrings for those that like to dangle and dazzle.

A truly unique and quirky piece is the Angel Wing Ring. There is really nothing else quite like it! The blonde bombshell from 90210, Anna Lynne McCord, agrees with us. She has been seen wearing it on multiple occasions.

Some of the most striking pieces from CC Skye are the art-deco inspired black and crystal pieces. R&B princess Rhianna loves the Power Hoops. They go so well with her cute short hair. The Power and the Blossom rings are the matching pieces to these earrings. These rings have adorned many celebrity fingers, including AnnaLynne McCord and the very stylish (but very controversial) Olivia Palermo of The City and Elle magazine.
