WHO: Lauryn Chun

HOMETOWN: Pauoa

FASHION RESUME: Holds a merchandise marketing degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

WHAT: Raise the Bar, the latest collection from her Wishing Bridge line.

WHY: The hammered-gold pieces are ultra-versatile—simple enough to dress up a slouchy tee and jeans but striking enough to pair with glam party looks.

WHERE: Shop the collection online at wishingbridge.com.

AHA MOMENT: “One day I realized that accessories were such a huge part of completing a look, so I went straight to Ben Franklin, bought a pair of needle- nose pliers and shaped my first pair of earrings.”

INSPIRATION: “I draw a lot of inspiration from vintage jewelry. Lately, I’ve been loving pieces from ancient Egypt.”

BLOG LOVE: “One of my favorite fashion blogs is SongofStyle. The outfits that Aimee Song puts together are so effortlessly cool.”

CELEBRITY SIGHTING: Lauryn Hill’s wardrobe stylist recently scooped up a handful of Wishing Bridge pieces. Hill liked them so much that she placed a custom order and rocked the items on stage.

WHAT’S NEXT: Look out for new additions to the Raise the Bar collection, including a lariat necklace and a ring-to-wrist bracelet.


Earrings, $60.


Necklace, $187.


 Two-finger ring, $35.
