If you love fun accessories that (literally) make a statement along with totally reasonable price-points, you’ll love Ryan Porter. The brainchild of designer Krysten Kauder, the line features jewelry, tees, key chains, and pins featuring an array of fun sayings. 

In fact, what started out as a way for Krysten to add some flair and color to her stacked bracelets quickly became the accessory brand we’ve all come to love today. Featured in magazines like Marie Claire, InStyle, SheFinds, and Bustle, fashion editors and bloggers alike can't get enough of this brand.

From colorful cord bracelets that read “#BOSS” to 14k gold necklaces with smiley face emojis, there is something guaranteed to satisfy each and every jewelry need. The sky is truly the limit with Ryan Porter as customers can order already-created pieces or customize their own. How cool is that!?
