There’s something truly satisfying about having a heavy piece of metal around your neck, something BOND Hardware know well. The young Brooklyn-based company, comprised of designers Dana Hurwitz and Vincent Barile, create jewelry that smacks of junkyard S&M. These bondage beauties are created from ordinary hardware, from hitch rings to hinges, and combine the eroticism of the fetish scene with the hard, cold beauty of high fashion. The best part? While some labels would flog their subs in the wallet, BOND’s prices are extremely reasonable, with the most expensive pieces set at $66. And since I can’t think of any more BDSM puns, all I’ll say is that Christmas is coming up and I know a certain editor with a neck that could use adornment.
