A Fine Fine Pendant


Cuttlebone Cast Sterling Silver Seashell Pendant with Large Pearl

What beautiful craftsmanship on this Sterling Silver Seashell Pendant ($74) by Cutterstone. I don't think it looks much like a seashell, but it is a stunning petal or leaf-like piece, cast using the popular cuttlefish bone technique. And the stunning pearl just accents the beauty of the silver piece. It comes hung on a black cord, but you can request practically anything including a nice silver chain. And I think it's the perfect piece to elevate day dress to a nice evening out.

Color Palette



All My Friends Crochet Necklace Create Your Own Color Trend - 2 for 30 dollars

I'm obsessing over the All My Friends Crochet Necklace ($30 for two) by Lavender Field because it's completely customizable. You can choose literally any colors you like. My favorite in the pics they show is this pretty neutral one above. But I can see why someone might go for bright ones like these too:

A Touch of France



Bicycles fabric cuff in blue - tribute to the Tour de France

This sweet little french-looking cuff bracelet is great for casual days. It was made as a tribute to the Tour de France, actually. You can pick up your own Bicycles Fabric Cuff ($32) at Zsuzsanna Bekefi Jewelry, and rest assured it's made from unbleached organic cotton, the bicycles are handprinted, the eyelets for the laces are antiqued copper, and the silk ribbon is handpainted! What more could you ask for?

Get Your Baubles Here





Have you seen Bauble Bar yet? It's a fairly new online shop selling lots of really pretty bling in a variety of styles at mostly low prices. The materials aren't awful, though they're not the really nice stuff of course. In fact, part of the mission behind the store is to ignore the rule of the industry that a retailer should mark up their jewelry astronomically. They like to say Bauble Bar "lets women create their ultimate jewelry box guilt-free." And I couldn't agree more.

This is one of the beauties that caught my eye today: The Royal Quartz Necklace ($34) above. Isn't it interesting and lovely? Since it's a bit celestial, I'd love to pair it with the Star Trio Bracelet ($60) below. A nice, delicate gold bracelet will go with practically anything, so it's definitely a good buy.

With Love From Raleigh




So we're (mostly) all settled into our new home in Raleigh, NC after moving here mid-June. We're still finding a few haunts here and there (anyone know a good Indian place?... we're not impressed so far), but for the most part we're starting to embrace our new city.

So when I ran across the Raleigh Skinny Bangle ($106) by Gorjana at Shopbop, I thought it was fate that I share it with you! If I hadn't just spent $200 fixing my broken down car, then perhaps I would have thought it was fate that I buy it. But alas, that wasn't in the cards.

Isn't it a lovely bracelet, though? So delicate and appropriate to wear with absolutely everything.

Dreaming of Monet



Large Copper Silver Water Puddle Ring - A Pebble in A Puddle

As the artist says herself, who didn't love playing in puddles after the rain as a child?! While this Water Puddle Ring ($48) by Nangijala Jewelry is inspired by a pebble sitting in a puddle, I think it looks awfully like a beautiful water lily.... Monet style. Monet is my mother's favorite painter, so I grew up looking at pictures of those beautiful wispy flowers. No wonder this ring immediately makes me think of them. An the one-of-a-kind, handcrafted nature of it, coupled with its quality fine metals.... I'm sold!
