I love jewelry. And to make my addiction even less manageable, I like the fine stuff. Every few years I set my sights on a special piece… right now the object of my desire is a rainbow moonstone necklace designed by Irene Neuwirth that looks something like this.
(I know this is a sickness because I actually hesitated before typing out the designer’s name in fear that somebody else would purchase it from underneath me.) I need professional help!
But what do you do when you just cant justify afford such luxuries? Well, designers Mike and Maaike have come up with an interesting solution. They googled the world’s most precious and valuable jewelry, took the low resolution images and then transferred them on leather for truly unique pieces of costume jewelry.
In case you are curious, here are the high res images they are stolen from…
So, would these satisfy my jewelry desires? No way! But maybe they would satisfy yours… and let’s face it, I’m here for you!
… I want to be like Iris Apfel. This style maven clearly finds the finds joy in life… which is now a major priority of mine after seeing The Bucket List. She is so fabulously unique and at ease diving into a little bit of everything using only a subtle dose of restraint.
I have to add her book, Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel, to my collection… you should too!
