Wearing my "She Wolf of France" earrings with my "Barber" vintage faux fur ski jacket which looks exactly like her. Barber (I refer to her as Barbarella as she is so sexy with those icy grey eyes!) is my brother's Husky that is the sweetest love bug! (And my little Westie lets her know who's the boss, heehee!)
Slightly blurry shot of my left ear with my orphaned diamond stud above.
Close-up. Sorry for the blurriness, I just couldn't get a clearer photo.
I've mentioned before how much I love Wendy and her jewelry line (see my post on my Wendy B's Swear Rings), but I'd like to add again that if you are looking for quality fine jewelry, made in the US by a creative, intelligent, funny, and classy woman (and blogger!) do check out Wendy Brandes and don't miss out on this sale if you can. (Obvs I'm not suggesting you blow your rent or food money, use common sense!) These are pieces worth saving up for. I think of them as future estate pieces that I'll be able to hand down to my Punk Glam Princess (who has already expressed her desire for my earrings!) They aren't pieces you buy then toss in a jewelry box to languish, they are designed with intention -- each piece has a story to tell and is created with such care and attention to detail. As someone who used to sell jewelry in my old brick and mortar shop, I've learned what's "good" versus what you would buy on a whim and forget about (and I have a sad jewelry box filled with such things!) To me these are statement pieces, even the Teeny Genie or Little Woolf necklaces may be inexpensive but are lovely, and have such detail for their small size that they will bring joy for years to come (seriously, they're even 3-D with back detail!)
As mentioned in my previous post Wendy is hosting a Valentine's Day sale. If you can't make it do contact her at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com for a price list of what you are interested in and she'll ship to you. Hopefully the snowpocalypse won't put a damper on the actual sale Wednesday evening, but she'll be keeping an eye on the weather and will extend the internet pricing as well as reschedule the sale if it does indeed turn out to be blizzard conditions. I do hope I can make it to show my support for this stylish, smart, witty, and talented woman so I'm praying the weather reports are just scare tactics! Hell, I think a pendulum is more accurate than the weather reports most of the time, so perhaps I'll do little weather witching to see what's up!
One last note. The Teeny Genie necklaces will not be discounted. Proceeds from these are going to help out a fellow blogger who has had the recent tragic death of her husband, and has two small children to support. Wendy is contributing $35 from the sale of each Teeny Genie necklace to Janet of Je Ne Sais Quois until her current inventory is sold out. So by purchasing one you'll be helping someone in need, truly a lovely way to send a magical message of love on Valentine's Day, don't you think?
PS more to come about my upcoming trip, and the one year anniversary of Idee Fixe!
