Some restaurants have that one dish you love so much that you keep coming back for it. But my favorite spots have so many tantalizing choices that each time I want something different. That’s exactly how I felt when I stumbled on Amy Bengtson’s jewelry.
It’s hard to even decide what to feature here (I’ve switched the photo three times). Her pieces are at once substantial and demure as she plays between the lightness of mother of pearl hand inlays and the earthiness of sleek laser-carved woods backed by metals.
I love the funkiness of her mod floral necklace, the boldness of her large cherry necklace, and the whimsy of her bird necklaces, like the two birds (shown here) and the mama-ready egg and bird necklace.
In other words, I’ll take one from column A and one from column B. Hold the soy sauce. –Liz
