Shameless self promotion:

I wrote a little review of a Lifetime movie for my friend Rusty‘s blog. You should probably go read it.

I also brought some cool new jewelry to Find. You should probably go buy it.

I have a few new things on my rarely-updated Etsy, and I hope to add more over the next few days. I’m listing some vintage clothes I don’t wear very much, and some jewelry I made.

Fancy Jewelry Day

9 Mar

Today I bought two pieces of  brass jewelry from designers on opposite coasts and managed to spend less than forty dollars. And the money I spent barely counts, because I just got a check from the FTC for being a dummy who believes false advertising claims.

I’ve been eyeing this gorgeous Jan Michaels ring at Motif on Exchange Street ever since my friend Althea bought a ring from the same line. Mine is a big rose quartz ball set in a cage of antiqued brass filigree, and hers looks like something a stylish vampire would wear. After finally purchasing mine today, I looked at Jan Michaels’ website (http://janmichaels.com/) which has some annoying flash books and music, but mentions Mad Max and suggests you donate to an AIDS charity, so I guess it balances out. Some of her pieces are too art-teachery for me, but I love that most of her earrings are available as posts and clips, and she makes a hell of a ring:

I want all of these

awesome rings

I also went to Find on Free Street, where I had some store credit from selling clothes, and I got a lovely necklace by  Rusty Petals ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/RustyPetals).  This line, by Portland jeweler Jenny McGee Dougherty, is aptly named: delicate and earthy, with sweet vintage charms, beautiful faded colors, and perfect feathers. It’s all very affordable, too (especially for me, with my aforementioned store credit).
