November Magazines' Jewelry Picks

POOR GIRLS' PAVE

I am so inspired by the current Pave' craze that I am challenging myself to create a necklace with these four charms as the starting point.



I don't know why I call this November Magazines' Jewelry Picks when, let's be honest, it's really Kathy's Jewelry Picks!  Anyway, I got it all from Lucky Magazine's "The Lucky Fall Jewelry Guide."  The first section on page 147 entitled "colored PAVE'" really rocks.  Three artists I love who are showcased here:

  • Betsey Johnson, www.betseyjohnson.com, for fabulous toggle bracelets
  • the "Grayce" line by Molly Sims, www.hsn.com, for vintage-inspired jewelry
  • Simply Vera Vera Wang, www.kohls.com , for multi-strand necklaces, lariats and a fabulous Pave' jet-tone crystal dome ring ($12.60 on sale!) 
I also love Betsey Johnson's rhinestone and hematite earrings, $55.00, on Lucky's pave' page.  (Molly Sims' "Grayce" line is also featured in the "Celebrity Designer" section of In Style's November issue.)  I love her  "Fireball" necklace for only $30.00.  On her hsn.com site I love the Ball Station graduated 33' necklace, although it's pretty pricey at $98.95.  She also has a fabulous 52' lariat necklace, pricey at $99.95 (a girl can dream, can't she?) 

And Vera Wang's line for Kohl's has not only pave' rings but multi-strand, lariat and ribbon-adorned necklaces for super-reasonable prices.  Check out these sites and peruse the goods.  If nothing else it's a fun time (at least it was for me!)  And inspiration abounds.  

SO, I'm making the challenge public, which should motivate me to find the creative time to get the necklace done.  I'm thinking of a multi-strand necklace, perhaps with some ribbon involvement....wish me luck!

Time for some time without the stressors of the day, hectic schedules, kids, sick kids (yes, again) and  mom responsibilities.  Ciao for now.
