Wear more jewelry (New Year's Resolution II)

As I have mentioned before, I tend to accumulate a lot of costume jewelry and then never wear much of it. Just today I managed to wear a necklace AND a bracelet (a modern day miracle, I assure you), but then I got to work and began typing and the bracelet hurt my wrist while rubbing on the keyboard and then it came off and got shoved hastily into my purse and...well, you get the picture. Speaking of pictures, here are some beauties for today:

New Year's Resolution: Wear More Jewelry

New Year's Resolution: Wear More Jewelry by thesweetjellybean

Out of everything in this collage, my favorite thing has to be the "diamond" ring in red acrylic. Although I originally saw this lovely at the online shop over at MOMA (Museum of Modern Art), I liked it enough to track down the original artist, Alissia Melka-Teichroew. Self described as a "new world-old world mashup" Alissia was raised in the Netherlands by a French mother and American father, and now resides in NYC. Alissia's playful take on the popular Tiffany diamond ring is available for $12 in a variety of colors including the ruby red seen here, black, clear, ivory, yellow, smoke, and is also available in (ever so slightly more expensive) silver and gold.

It never ceases to amaze me how many talented artists and shops there are out there. I do realize that buying more jewelry won't actually help me achieve my goal of remembering to wear more jewelry, but it sure as hell is fun to look for some new baubles (and it beats the desk job)!
