Piece of the Week: Brent Neale x Edie Parker Pendant

The brands have collaborated on a fine jewelry ode to cannabis.

Aesthetically speaking, Brent Neale is at home in the kitschy symbolism of late 1960s and 1970s psychedelic culture. 
 
Mushrooms, rainbows, unicorns, and yes, cannabis plants, are all part designer Brent Neale Winston’s colorful wonderland.
 
While Winston has been spotted before in a one-of-a-kind crown with gemstone-laden cannabis leaves—(casual)—her new collaboration with Edie Parker marks the first time she’s properly offered the motif for sale.
 
Helmed by Brett Heyman, Edie Parker launched in 2010 with a range of wildly popular acrylic handbags and accessories based on mid-century styles. 

Today its sister brand, Flower by Edie Parker, makes irreverent accessories for design-loving potheads, from glass pipes shaped like fruit to plastic weed grinder-slash-storage cases.
 
Banking on their tongue-in-cheek, fun fashion synergy, Brent Neale and Edie Parker are offering Mary Jane pendants with a charitable bent. 
 
Priced at $8,250, there are three carved stone “Cannabis Pendants” with different gemstone combinations.  
 
This “Piece of the Week” pick features carved amethyst and blue chalcedony set in 18-karat yellow gold and set with blue sapphires. It’s available for pre-order on both the Brent Neale and Edie Parker websites.

The brands will make a donation from proceeds of sales to the Women’s Prison Association, which helps women plan for release while incarcerated, then find housing, careers, develop workplace skills, and access healthcare when they are released. 
 
The effort aligns with Flower by Edie Parker’s mission to address the disproportionate effects of marijuana-related incarceration in communities of color, particularly regarding women and children, through the Edie Parker Foundation.
