I Can't Help Myself...

I am always on the lookout for great jewelry pieces. A lot of times if I can't find what I want I'll just make it myself.

However, I recently made a purchase of a beautiful necklace by a local designer, Kelsey Lynn, who has just started working on her jewelry line. Kelsey and I were apart of a trunk show at Clutch and she had been working tirelessly on making new pieces for the show. She posted many of them on Facebook and that is when I saw the owl necklace, "Hoot", and knew I had to have it. As soon as I saw her at the show I asked her if she brought it and I declared I was buying it! I am not the proud owner of "Hoot" - do you love it as much as I do?

The necklace has been described as: "Made with large vintage gold tone owl, small baby owl charm with light brown crystal eyes, draping vintage chain with brown glass crystals, top chain beading with baby owl charm is made of light brown CV crystals, all chains and hardware is vintage and gold tone".

Today I was looking through some emails and saw this cuff which has caught my eye. I doubt there is time to get it as a Christmas gift but maybe for my birthday! I just love the color of the green!

Made by Rarities: "Fine Jewelry with Carol Brodie Malachite and Black Sea Glass 10K Cuff Bracelet. Cushion-cut African malachite gems fill polished 10K bezel settings, and scatter over a dyed, freeform, cuff-shaped cut of African black sea glass. Plucked from the ocean, sea glass is a result of that environment's actions on found glass material—some dating as far back as the 18th century—and is an intriguing example of nature's creative forces".

Man, I am on a jewelry finding mission - stay tuned as I'll share what I find!!
