Has anyone heard of Lulu Frost? I recently stumbled upon this designer while browsing Shopbop.com and I will admit I became instantly obsessed! Everything about this designer is intriguing. Lisa Salzer named her line after her grandmother, who worked in the estate and antique jewelry business. She uses found objects to create one-of-a-kind pieces and her designs carry with them a great vintage vibe. Interestingly, some of her most recent pieces appear to have a bit of ancient Egyptian influence. Just check out the Lulu Frost Insight Necklace!
It seems like I have always had this thing for long and skinny necklaces. Chains are okay, but what I really like are bead necklaces. For the longest time, I was gravitating toward those little seed bead strands. But the trends have been changing and it seems chunky beads are much more popular now. That’s a shame because I still really like long necklaces. I think I may have found a happy medium though. Meet the Chan Luu Graduated Bead Necklace!
Madewell has been around for a long time. In fact, they have been around since 1937! However, they have never been a designer that I associate with accessories. Not handbags and certainly not jewelry. So when I saw this necklace you see here, I was a bit shocked when I realized it is from Madewell. Meet the Madewell Cheetah Pendant Necklace!
I love Swarovski crystals. In fact, I have a little bit of an obsession with them. I don’t own very many things that have Swarovski crystals on them but anytime I see something featuring the famous crystals I almost always love it. Crystals are feminine and pretty. Plus they make everything more fun looking. I’m not a fan of anything gaudy looking but crystals are a wonderful exception.
The Enchanted Atelier “Sophie” Pendant is one of the most gorgeous pieces I’ve ever seen. Not only is it adorned in beautiful Swarovski crystals but you can wear it so many different ways. I personally things it looks stunning worn as a headband or belt but you can also use it as a necklace. It’s pricey but the versatility makes it worth it.
I’m a girly girl. I love the color pink, I love anything with crystals and I love hearts! There was a period that any jewelry I would buy had to feature a heart of some sort. With that said, when I laid my eyes on the Tuleste “Heart” Necklace I was instantly in love. Yeah it’s kind of gaudy but it’s definitely gorgeous. It’s quite large so it catches your eye in the most fabulous way possible.
One of my favorite things to do as a child was origami. I had a book with instructions for making all sorts of animals. Many of them were too difficult for me to make, but I did manage to make the crane. I was so proud of myself, I think I probably made a few dozen. They can actually be quite pretty to hang around your room if you use colorful paper. That is why I love the Monserat De Lucca Origami Necklace. Just looking at it brings back some wonderful memories!
Pamela Love makes some of the most interesting-looking jewelry pieces I have probably ever seen. According to the designer’s profile, her jewelry is “inspired by art, nature, science, religion, magic, and folk jewelry from around the world”. After pondering over this piece you see pictured here, I think I can see what was meant by that description. Introducing the Pamela Love Zellij Necklace!
