Made of crystal, gold, silver, pearls and semi precious stones, most of them are long enough to brush the shoulders--at least.

It started on inner-city streets where rap musicians converted everything from alarm clocks and hood ornaments into pendants to hang on heavy gold chains. This unconventional jewelry went well with the track suits, athletic shoes, T-shirts and logo-laden caps that were their wardrobe basics. Designers in fashion's stratosphere are calling rap the strongest influence on style today.

One man's trash is another man's treasure. That old saying couldn't be more true than with some of L.A.'s designers, who are making accessories that look like sight gags: brooches from bottle caps, buttons to wear in your hair, Chinese-food carryout containers converted to purses and sunglasses with surfboards gliding across the frame. They're all part of a campaign to get a bit of whimsy into every wardrobe.
