Dudine may be the new kid on the block, but the Jen Kramer, jewelry brand’s designer has had her hands busy handling all sorts of baubles for years. After years as an accessories editor  W, Marie Claire and InStyle, Jen Kramer ventured into a collection of wear-with-anything west coast-infused jewelry. The Dudine aesthetic is a healthy mix of charming Mexican flair (a weighty Bandera pendant necklace) with downtown grungy-chic rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities (a bullet ring!), which means most pieces are ready and waiting for regular rotation.

“It was important to me that the pieces have a bold, but not overwhelming design. They’re strong enough to wear on their own, and can be dramatic when worn together, but it’s never excessive,” Jen told us. “I wanted the collection to be comprised of pieces you want to wear every day and also have pieces for when you’re looking to make a fashion-forward statement. I tend to be a jewelry junkie so I love to layer pieces together.”

Inspired by her travels from the wide-open beaches of Baja California and “the colorful history of colonial Mexico,” as Jen said, the line is made from materials like antiqued metal, turquoise, glass and resin. They’re certainly made to layer!

With prices going from $30 for the “Mexican Vagabond multi-strand rope ring to $175 for the Bandera pendant necklace, Jen said she wanted the line to be well-crafted “affordable luxury.” Even better? You can spend your paycheck guilt-free: 10% of all proceeds will benefit the Thousand Smiles Foundation, a charity in the very country that supplied her with enough inspiration to create her fall 2012 collection. Every season, Jen will pick a new charity to work with. Click through the slideshow to take a peek at our favorite picks from Dudine’s inaugural line.
