I love this project, Jewelry for a Cause.  I am jonesing for a set of their mala beads (pictured).  I have been looking for some to use in my practice & it makes it even sweeter that these benefit such a good cause.

In Gratitude

Like traditional malas, each In Gratitude necklace has 108 beads and are made from crushed paper and barkcloth. Each are hand wrapped and strung and the colors come from natural plant dye. No two are the same. Your purchase helps the women of Uganda create a sustainable and dignified source of income for their families and communities.

I also love their Caliber Collection, which takes serial numbers from illegal guns & metal from bullet cases taken off the streets by the Newark Police Dept.  Proceeds benefit Gun Buyback Amnesty programs.

 

 

As usual, perfection from Diane Kruger in Thakoon. Love her. How insane are those Stephen Webster firework earrings & Jimmy Choo Malika booties?! View high resolution

Pura Vida bracelets
I got the green tri-circle one, a perfect snag for St. Patrick’s Day.  These bracelets are completely waterproof, plus they have a ‘p’ charm which has special meaning for me.  AND they’re local!
I always love companies that give back.  I absolutely fell in love with the lifestyle, food & people in Costa Rica, so I was thrilled to learn about this company’s story.  Profits benefit the Surfrider Foundation, as well as local Costa Rican artists.  These make great gifts as well!

'Hamsa' comes from the Hebrew word for five & is an ancient symbol believed to ward off the evil eye.  I picked up a simple adjustable cord bracelet at a little market in sf & I have been very superstitious about it lately.

You can find this one on Amazon. Etsy is loaded with tons I adore like THISTHIS & THIS.

I am the WORST when it comes to earrings.  I didn’t pierce my ears until I was in my 20s & I regret ever doing it!  I wear the same pair of diamond studs I received as a gift for my undergraduate graduation every day, so I am trying to make a conscious effort to mix it up!  Although I like the look of bold accessories, I can’t stand heavy earrings or ones that get tangled up in my hair.  I just snagged these little cuties & I actually really like them.  The triangle shape makes them modern, but they still feel subtle & versatile.  Finally found a pair I think I can work into the rotation!  (O.k., o.k., I realize this is not a huge departure from my diamond studs, but it’s a start!)   View high resolution

C Wonder necklace

Shark Tooth Pavé Necklace by C. Wonder

C. Wonder was created by Tory Burch’s ex-husband. The brand has a lot of similarities at a lower price point. I find the whole nasty-ex knock-off situation a turn-off, but I did happen to peruse the newly opened shop & came out with this necklace, which I love.

Sweetheart

My new ring from Etsy.  I had it engraved with my initial.  It’s so darling.

Heart ring

I love these. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
