Weekend Project: DIY Ruffle Necklace

I love the look of this ruffle necklace — it’s so delicate and feminine — and apparently you can make one yourself in about 10 minutes. You do need a sewing machine, but if you don’t have one, I’ve found that bringing a bottle of wine and a box of cookies over to a crafty…

A Fantabulous Guitar Case Necklace

I had a few friends in high school who insisted on bringing their guitars to every single social gathering and closing their eyes dramatically to play “Moondance.” The sight of a guitar case still gives me a little rush of anxiety, because I never know when someone’s going to force me into a Van Morriso…

Shopping Guide: 10 Divine Pieces Of Druzy Jewelry

What’s a druzy, you ask? Strange name, yes, but it makes it easier to put a label on what I previously referred to as “the inside-geode sparkles.” Druzies, or drusies, are the tiny quartz crystals that form within or on the surface of other previously deposited stones and minerals. They’re beautifully eye-catching and they capture…

Unauthorized “Downton Abbey” Jewelry Pulled From PBS Website

You can’t blame PBS for trying to make a buck. Even they hate their biweekly fundraising efforts. Nevertheless, the production company for “Downton Abbey” got on the horn and put a stop to PBS.org’s sale of a “Downton Abbey”-inspired jewelry line, which was in no way affiliated with the show.

A Bunny Ring That Is Out Of This World

I can barely handle this ring. I mean, look at it. It’s a giant cocktail ring featuring a stoic bunny in front of an endless starry sky. Its official title is “Celestial Bunny Ring,” which sounds like the name of a really exotic sex toy or one of Frank Zappa’s children. If I owned thi…

Guy Fieri Designed A Line Of Men’s Jewelry, Naturally

Questions for Guy Fieri, regarding his new line of men’s jewelry. Does this line include barbecue sauce, or barbecue sauce-flavored gems? If not, why?

Shopping Guide: Holiday Jewelry That Isn’t Tacky

One of the worst things I’ve ever had someone say to me is, “You look …  festive.” Around the holidays, it can be hard to determine where to draw the line between kitschy holiday accessories and what’s, well, more suited as a wreath than a bracelet. I’ve rounded up some jewelry for the holiday seaso…

Bright Lights, Big Necklace

When it comes to jewelry, my philosophy is the more, the better. Coco Chanel’s advice was to remove one accessory before leaving the house. Mine is to pile it on until I’m content. But after receiving JustFab’s Ready to Rock necklace, I think Coco was on to something. This big, bold rhinestone necklace is so…

Do Not Want: A Bracelet With Bite

A single animal tooth, sure. A tiny cast bronze animal skull replica even, that’s fine. But I draw the line at wearing human teeth — real or otherwise. And frankly, while I know I’m into some weird stuff style-wise, I have no idea why someone would want to wear another person’s dientes. Nevetheless, if you…
