June really is the month for weddings (even Andrew and I are approaching 16 years together on June 19th) and jaC jewelry came to my attention recently as a snazzy place for custom bridal wear.
Of course that doesn't mean that you have to be a bride to wear these beautiful pieces--I wouldn't advise going out and getting married all over again just for the benefit of these baubles. But then you never know . . . if the jewelry's pretty enough women have been known to do odd things . . .
But anyway, what I like about jaC jewelry is the simple beauty of the natural elements she uses--check out this labradorite bracelet on the left with matching earrings, the delicate gray is gorgeous and versatile--I know exactly which sweater I'd wear with it. And this red coral petal bracelet has my name written all over it.
For more gray try the Botswana Agate necklace and earring set--the shape of the beads is slim and supple, I feel skinnier just thinking about it. The pineapple quartz pendant with citrine and pearls is a dazzler--it looks so sweet and juicy it's a temptation to lick it like some big ol' Jolly Rancher on your neck--and the ocean jasper-smoky quartz bracelet is as pretty as the fresh-washed rocks on the beach.
If you're scheduled to be a bride in the near future or perhaps a bridesmaid jaC will do custom orders such as the one below--though there certainly aren't any rules that say you had to have marriage on the brain to buy these pieces. Maybe I should treat myself to an early birthday present . . .
On with the exciting part . . . this week's giveaway winner will receive the beautiful set of earrings pictured at top. More specifically, the biwa-stick pearls (have you even heard of biwa stick pearls before? Me neither but I'm liking them very much) with Bali sterling silver frame beads and freshwater pearls you see accenting the middle of each earring. Spring is going to be pretty exciting with those babies swinging from your ears!
