Jonathan Adler to Expand Accessories Collection and Launch a Jewelry Line.

Jonathan Adler, production-potter-turned-eclectic-home-decor merchant, is molding himself into quite the fashion businessman.

According a report in WWD, Jonathan Adler will expand his currently limited accessories line this fall, thanks to a licensing agreement with LF USA, a Hong Kong-based branch of Li & Fung Ltd.

Expect to see more of Adler's quirky patterns, smart craftsmanship, and cheeky color palettes (think lots of red, orange, and turquoise) incorporated into his 300-piece fall collection, which includes shocking red leather wallets and change purses ($90 to $190); leather belts with bronze anchor, owl, and key-shaped buckles ($48 to $98); playful scarves ($78 to $196); hats ($88 to $125); and handbags, such as totes, clutches, crossbody bags, and wristlets ($195 to $450).

What else is in the works? A—wait for it—jewelry collection! You'll have to hold your meeps, eeks, and squees in for just a bit though.

“It ain’t ready yet, but it’ll be ready for fall [2013]," Adler told WWD of the jewelry line. Seriously, why taunt us like that?

In the meantime, we'll just have to swoon over the current accessories carried on his website,
