Pearls! PEARLS!

 

Just found this article on The Hairpin,
and just about died of *glurg*ing:

 

“Here, thousands of pieces of Hollywood history are crammed into drawers and trays. Open up one blue drawer, and you might find snakes; another could be all bejeweled daggers. The opposite wall is stacked floor to ceiling with black velvet-lined trays. This is where the most coveted pieces have been carefully catalogued, ordered first by type, and then by gem color.”

 

Eugene Joseff created this necklace for Leigh.

 

Holy. Crap.

 

What I love about Joseff is that he was crazy about historical accuracy,
and he did it with Swarovski crystals, paste jewelry, and gold-plating.
I love that he made stunning jewelry out of ordinary things.

When I become a production designer,
you betcherass I’ll be renting jewelry from Joseff’s.

Decisions, Decisions:

 

So,
The Boyo got me a lovely gift certificate to We Dream in Colour’s Etsy shop,
and now I must decide.

…Which is more like, do I spend the entire amount on *one* piece,
or do I buy a couple?

Because part of me feels like having two pieces might be more fun,
but then again…maybe I should just go for the one I reaaaaally like.

 

Here are my top contenders:

 

They’re all just so pretty, you know?

The necklace,
I have to admit,
was my first “OOOO!!!”,
but?

I just don’t wear necklaces that often–
maybe once or twice a week.

I wear earrings every single day.

HALP.

Give me yer votes!
