so, sailor, I’ve seen you here before.

I was at Urban Outfitters the other day and saw this bracelet on display prominently:

it always makes me happy to be a year ahead of a trend.  I’m sure you’ll remember what I wore all last summer…now you can own your own piece of 1988 for $5.  thanks Urban!


books + agate.

two of our favorite things:

from the new curated flash-sale site OpenSky, these pretty one-of-a-kind agate bookends are only $38!  because our books need jewelry, too.

If you’re in NY, check out jeweler Jill Platner’s sculpture show in Soho.  We’re big fans of her jewelry and the images of her installations. Utilizing her signature balance of organic and architectural, the sculptures play on a dramatic interplay of light and dark.  The images alone look amazing.

just found the earrings I’ll be wearing this summer.   damn, they would’ve been perfect for Coachella….had I gone.

My Spring Fling at Catbird.

27 Apr

I mentioned the other day that SENA and I perused Catbird on a rainy evening in Williamsburg recently.

in our characteristically optimistic fashion, we both purchased a sweet little something absolutely necessary for our spring wardrobes.

Sena was looking for a loooong pendant and found this amazing (value!) magnifier on a long chain:

I, meanwhile, picked up a pretty Nallik calcite pendant with a single orchid petal.

each Nallik pendant is one-of-a-kind, but here’s another one on the Catbird site:

hurry up, spring!  I’m ready for you…

Etsy Roundup: Tina Tarnoff.

25 Apr

Tina Tarnoff makes beautiful papercut art and then uses prints of  her works to create jewelry.

a little gothic, a little sweet.  I’m always looking for clever pendants to layer and this one certainly fits the bill.

this design is called “back where you belong”

I love her papercut originals, too, but the pendants are so accessible.  perfect victoriana!
