Stuff I Want

I was trying to come up with something to write whilst eating breakfast and trying to run out the door for my REAL job, and decided I would share some of the items on my wish list. Don't know why they all happen to be jewelry, but for some reason, they are. In no particular order, here they are.
House of Harlow Jewelry
Loooove Nicole Richie's jewelry line, whose heee-yuge cocktail-inspired pieces are bananas. I die. Okay, I know I'm going overboard with the Rachel Zoe lingo, but just check out the following lil numbers. You'll agree. Ell-oh-vee-eee her use of leather in the pieces. Swoony.

Black Resin Triangle Necklace. I love you too.

Black Leather Cocktail Ring - I love you most of all.

Gold Chunky Jewelry

I have beeng wanting a big ole gold chunky ring. Thanks to Amieplante on Etsy, I can have one.

I am DYING for a giant gold chain necklace. I mean GI-ANT. So big that Mr. T would look at it and think to himself, "Really? THAT big?" Yes, T - THAT big. Check LilyMar on Etsy if you, too, have the same desire.

Slithery Jewelry
I don't know what my dealio is with this, but I have wanted a snake ring forevah now, and just haven't found The One yet. I have come across a few great options, IF I had a few thou to spend. Alas, I do not. Here are a coupla more reasonable options.

John Lenonard Studio
I love the smooth, sleek, modern use of sterling silver here combined with the lines of the snakity ake. Snakes on my ring I like. Snakes on my back doorstep, I do not.

Okay, I lied. This one is not reasonably priced at all. Almost three thousand dollahs. Still, if you want to buy it for me, be my guest here.

Recently, I have become enamored with octo-jewelry. No, not baubles inspired by Nadia Suleman, but rather our eight-tentacled friends from the deep.
Saw this SICK piece on Atlantis Home, which is a crazy-fab blog in itself, but did a lil Google-surfing and came up with a few other pieces.

Mice and Moonbeams

Antonio Palladino + Sold at Barney's = Shan cannot afford it

'Nother Kenneth Jay Lane piece. Oh Kenneth, you have the BESTY-EST costume jewelry. I heart you.
