PlayHardLookDope designs a staple piece for Broadway's "West Side Story" Lead Actor, Dharon E. Jones
PlayHardLookDope's Lifestyle Accessories Designer, Jon designs a staple piece for Broadway's "West Side Story" Lead Actor, Dharon E. Jones who plays (Riff) a gang leader in the revival of the infamous original.
The High-Grade Stainless Steel Bullet Necklace happened unexpectedly when costume designers walked into the Brand's jewelry store located in Soho, New York and express the need for something edgy, unique and a bit risky. Not disclosing what their requests would later be for, Jon showed the two stylish women many styles of chains, bracelets and, rings. Picking a few pieces that would work well with the overall look and feel of the ensemble, that one striking and edgy piece was still missing. It wasn't after a while of pulling pieces that Jon was informed of the project.
Suddenly a light went off and Jon presented the costume designers with a rare piece he'd kept off display due to its mixed feelings at first glance by customers. "This is what you are looking for", said Jon as he handed over a solid enclosed 3-D life-size Bullet Pendant Necklace! He described it as Dope, the women chuckled out of kindness, not really understanding the slang. He then pointed to the sign behind it that read the Brand's name, PlayHardLookDope. Without hesitation, the pair loved the weighted pendant and talked quietly about how it would work in action. In the following weeks, Jon receives more requests for his Lifestyle Jewelry and is prompted to bring samples to an undisclosed location through a side door.
