Ooohhhh….glassy.

Ooohhhh….glassy.

I’m all about necklaces these days. If I grab one piece of jewelry before I race out of the house –late, as always–it’s going to be something that draws attention towards the boobs and away from the undereye bags. Darn newborns. I’m...
The perfect combination

The perfect combination

Aside from the terribly unoriginal “two of something gift, I had absolutely no idea what to get my friends’ twin girls — until I found the handmade PB & J necklace at the charmingly named Violet Gumdrops. It’s a perfect alternative to the...

Calling all word freaks who happen to dig cool jewelry: We’ve just found a loquacious charmer which speaks volumes about your percipience. A piece more rare than kunzites and zeugmas that won’t cost qintars and zolaties. It’s a Scrabble charm that...

A pinch of flower

With each change of season I feel the call to update my jewelry drawer. It’s a sickness, I know, but with Spring in the air, I just can’t be asked to accessorize with the same old same old. Why, even the suggestion of it is shocking. So right now...
