Braille Jewelry

You’ll be charmed by this elegant jewelry from At First Sight. Each poetic piece incorporates Braille in some form or fashion. The Alphabet Bracelet—designer Leslie Ligon’s personal favorite—won the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt People’s Choice Award for 2010. It serves as a Braille cheat-sheet of sorts, with the Braille alphabet on the outside and corresponding print on the reverse. From bookmarks to earrings to a heart pendant with decorative scrollwork surrounding the Braille word for “love,” all her designs boast a chic tactile quality. Ligon, whose young son is blind, says she doesn’t design for those who are visually impaired, but to create awareness through design.
