This week's favorites are actual purchases I've made recently. You can get a sense of my taste in jewelry. I like simple and clean, not alot of adornment in the jewelry I wear everyday. What adornment there is I like to be meaningful to me (like the hands). Since I've been described as "quirky" the jewelry I choose will reflect that too like this recent purchase, the Fortune Teller Necklace from The Mymble's Daughter.
And back to the meaningful jewelry, this lovely hamsa ring from (yes, hands again!) from jewelry by michal
