A Pretty Necklace For A Pretty Lady….

5 Aug

(If anyone read this and immediately thought “Fresh fish! We catch em, you buy em!” then all I have to say is this: I love you.)

I am all about the statement necklace: big, often animal-centric or nature-related, mostly beautiful but slightly strange.

And I need a new one.

I have a bajillion and one pretty necklaces saved on my Etsy and Pinterest accounts so I figured now might be a nice time to share that collection with anyone who stumbles across this blog. Hope you enjoy, oh invisible one!

One of my favorite jewelry makers is Meg J Roberts. I pretty much want every necklace she’s put on Etsy… Let me show you what I mean.
