Things y'all may think are interesting:
The vivacious Tina Tang is giving away of two of her sterling necklaces. Take a look and sign up at www.blog.tinatang.com.
The talented and insightful Lori Ettlinger Gross at www.jewelhistory.com has book recommendations and another ethical jewelry site. Eons ago, I said I would post on the subject, but she beat me to it- and wrote her post very well. Anyone with an interest in the subject should check out her site's posts and recommendations.
Lastly, from The Sartorialist, www.thesartorialist.com, a number of wonderful, end of summer beach fashion shots and this photo of over the top earrings.
Wait- that may be a necklace; I love it. The energy, the movement, the childlike colors with the very adult chaotic concertina wire references- fantastic. I couldn't wear the Mousetrap Mouse, but the bigger piece/pieces are fabulous!
