I realize this reduces my chances of getting one, but I must tell you about Mood Swing Studio’s Abloom collection of necklaces, earrings, and broaches. My favourites are the necklaces, each is one-of-a-kind and lovingly crafted by Kristen using vintage enamel flowers re-appropriated from old-school jewelery. With titles often referring to popular culture or songs, Kristen’s names for her pieces are almost as interesting as the pieces themselves. My current fave is called “Dance This Mess Around” which I am guessing (and hoping) is a reference to The B-52′s.

approx. $30-70.

    Actually, I have one of her necklaces and every time I wear it I get gobs and gobs of complements! Even if I didn’t, though, it’s basically the only piece of jewelry I ever wear, I just love it so much!

  3. Thanks Gayla! It appears my post from yesterday didn’t take. User error I assume.

    Thanks so much for the lovely mention. I’m honored, truly. You are such a rock star in your own right my dear!
