Mad About Mixing it......
Happy New Year!
2009 was the year of the alchemist.... mixing bronze, silver, copper, gold,... antiqued, asymmetrical, in knots, in braids, and even mixed with pearls. Those who excited us enough to open our discerning wallets in these recessionary times, are the mixologist. They've concocted jewelry that will one day be passed on to our Granddaughters (and Grandsons), and with a flippant, 'at the end of the decade we were all mad about mixing it' we will wrap their necks, wrists and fingers in silvers and golds.
Oscar de la Renta Mixed Metal Flower Bib Necklace $1,190 BUY
The Million Strand Bib Necklace $58 BUY
This is a great necklace! So easy to get a lot of wear out of this one, .... tucked under a crisp blazer, with your favorite LBD, or with a simple white tee.
Twisted Silver, was brought to my attention by Anne, last week's winner. Very tough girl fashionista chic. Soooo beautiful! ... and again, another very versatile piece.
Attitude Bracelet $60 BUY
