Enter To Win One Of THREE Jewelry Goodie Bags From Hello Drama!

If you've ever been in high school, joined a sorority, or had a roommate (or even just friends, for that matter), you've probably experienced what many like to call "drama." Think that ship has sailed? Well, not quite! Turns out there's some drama of a different sort headed our way, except this kind won't make you run for the hills or do things that fall under the category of snarky/passive aggressive. Hello Drama jewelry was created by designers and Nylon Pink band members Katt and Kaila, who cite rock, lyrics, and anime as inspiration for their girly, kitschy, and over all edgy collection. The jewelry packs some serious attitude, but is cute and clever too! Read on for an interview with the Hello Drama design duo, and find out how you can score a jewelry goodie bag worth $50!

Stylehive: We like how you take girlie elements like hearts, roses, & sparkles, & turn them edgy, with handcuffs, revolvers, etc -- where do you come up with the ideas for these kinds of girlie-gone-twisted designs?
Kaila: We always like to say our designs are "cute but deadly." Hello Drama Jewelry consists of me and Katt. We are also in a band called Nylon Pink and a lot of the jewelry pieces are inspired by our lyrics. We are also inspired by anime and Japanese street fashion.
Katt: Our jewelry line is a reflection of our personalities as well... we may be cute but you better watch out!

Stylehive: What kind of girl do you think the typical Hello Drama jewelry wearer is? Do you have anyone or any style in particular in mind when you design? ie: rocker chick, tough girl...
Kaila: I don't think there is one single typical Hello Drama Jewelry wearer, we have everything from indie goth glam girls/guys to the Hollywood club princess to the bad ass rocker girls. When we design we always just design for ourselves- we design jewelry that we would love to wear!

Stylehive: What's your favorite piece from your collection?
Kaila: My favorite piece from the collection is Lip Venom. I love the lip ring- I'm too scared to get one in real life so by wearing the necklace I can live vicariously through it!
Katt: Hmm...my favorite piece would be the Captive... besides the fact that I LOVE LOVE hearts, this piece is interesting because it incorporates mixed media- leather and plastic, layering, and lacing.

Stylehive: Describe your personal style in three words.
Kaila: pink, edgy, bright
Katt: crazy, loud, bright

Stylehive: Where did the name "Hello Drama" come from?
Kaila: "Hello Drama" actually comes from a song lyric- it's the name of the lead single for our band! For better or worse, it is the story of our lives! Someone's drama always surrounds us and I feel like our designs are very dramatic, cute mixed with dark, nice mixed with badass...

Stylehive: Which celebrity would you most want to see in your designs?
Kaila: Gwen Stefani! She is definitely my style icon.
Katt: Cyndi Lauper back in the day!

Stylehive: What's next for you?
Kaila: We are designing a new line of pieces all in sterling silver that we are really excited about!!
Katt: Yes! It'll be a bit more mature and forward thinking in design, can't wait!

    Hello Drama design that is my favorites (I have two) would be either THINK PINK or PINK. Why? If you knew me you would know that pink is my favorite color. My husband is always buying me the pink playboy bunny items, pink tops, undies, handbags, jewelry, the only thing I do not have pink is my cell - its purple - however, I have ordered a pink cover for it and it should be here soon. Thanks for giving me a chance to enter. April |-D Beautiful

    I love "Yellow Fever" because I definately have been having yellow fever for a while. The necklace is the best way to pronounce my love for yellow fever.

    All of the "Label Whore" designs are my favorite from Hello Drama because ever since I moved into my dorm it's the only way to show how into fashion you are. And having a roommate that has nearly everything with a designer label it's hard to show her up.

    My favorite Hello Drama design is the heartcuffs. The heart shaped cuffs represent how love is binding and I find that very romantic. It's a beautiful symbol but in a less cheesy romantic way.

    I love the label whore necklace, it's great and I've always wanted it. I see so many girls around town who are all about labels because I live in a college town, I feel like this necklace just laughs in their face.

    My favorite design would have to be Bleeding hearts! It's so cute and could accompany a variety of different looks. Plus, who doesn't have a bleeding heart, when your in school [high school, college, or other] everyone usually either wears their hearts on their sleeves or they hide the fact that they have one really well. Over all its a magnificent piece!

    I would have to say that Death Note is probably my favorite. My 15 year old daughter is a little on the Goth side and is all about the music, so it really makes me think of her. She would adore it.

    The Death Note necklace just kills me. (GET IT?) As a music performance major with a sometimes rather morbid sense of humor, I can't think of a necklace that could better sum up my interests. And to make it even better, it's in silver, which I usually opt for rather than gold. It's simple, it's fantastically designed, and I adore it.

    I love them all but if I have to choose one it would be the live wire in silver. I have a lightening bolt tattoo on my hip to cover a scar from a car accident I was in(I wasnt the driver). I love nature and love when it storms, the lightening is mysterious and I love to watch it. I also have a telescope that takes pictures and I love the moon and stars.

    My favorite Hello Drama design is Label Whore. This unique piece in your jewelry line stands out to my eyes because it demonstrates how a logo can be manipulated, so it sticks out from the normal logo trend. In my opinion, manipulation stands out as an unique element in style. It's a way of expression in a form of art that's very appealing because it does not follow a trend; it creates its' artistic design/image. Label Whore is a necklace I would love to wear because the glam and edginess of this piece will help express myself through my own personal style and what I wear. This piece will also show the amount of support I have for your band, Nylon Pink, and the jewelry created by the inspiration of your lyrics. The necklace Label Whore is a piece that stands out from the normal logo trend and successfully hold its' personal self-created style.

    My favorite is Miss Poison mainly because I love Halloween and would celebrate it year-round if I could. The combination of bow (nice) and spider (nasty) makes that unique and eye-catching. I could see someone looking at it and going "is that really a SPIDER on that necklace?". I'm also a fan of the Revolver necklace for my sister. She's a police sergeant, the only female officer at the police department I work at as a dispatcher. She's already an anomaly there because she has long blond hair, still has her nails done, wears makeup and carries a gun! I think she'd love a cute Revolver necklace to demonstrate her feminine side in jewelry.

    The Heartcuffs are my fave...I think they symbolize how crazy and entangling love can be, but also how connected two people can be. I'm probably reading too much into it, but I think it's a pretty dope necklace.

    The "label whore" necklace is the most 'realistic' piece to me. Being a fashionista and being fashion forward does NOT mean ONLY wearing expensive labels and designer items. When you think of something "designer" the first thing that comes to mind is a label, emblem, or sign. When you see a "D&G" you think dolce&gabbana, you think expensive, you think designer.When people become obsessed with labels, I feel as though they are not as fashionable as THEY think they are. A lot of times they are wearing it because everyone else is, and then it's like a cult to me-why would you want to look like EVERYONE else?! "Labels" are just that..labels. Fashion is all about expression, showing who you are by what you wear, how you dress, etc. Daring to be different. This whole line represents that to me. The label whore necklace, literally makes me laugh because I feel like I can understand that piece inside and out and everyone who has a passion for fashion can relate with it!

    I love "Label Whore" Because they shows one of the world most famous fashion icons, Chanel, and they warped it into their own style and personality. It shows how fashion and style can also be warped and transformed into something else. Its not only fashion forward, it stands for something more. Fall in love with the style and the elegance and the personality of the line, not just the label. It looks amazing, Has a strong message, and Its most definitely something I would wear.

    My favorite piece is the Cleaver necklace since my daughter loves to walk around with dangerous objects around her neck. Right now she has a dagger and the Cleaver would be a nice compliment.
