May issue of Elle Shows A lot of Jewels -- whew! How Refreshing
Seriously, I was going into withdrawal. I know all this frugality is good for us -- I'm reusing, repurposing, recycling. But a gal's gotta get some eye candy some time!
The new issue of Elle arrived yesterday and there was jewelry to be seen throughout. Oh how I missed my frivolity and jewelicious pages.
There was jewelry featured in at least three sections of the Fashion News department. And jewelry in the fashion spreads. And a goodly amount of jewelry ads.
An interesting trend was highlighted -- agate geode slices. In multiples for the neck and wrist. Big, heavy and often dyed crystally slices. Not normally on my IN list but in these dark times, even they lightened my mood.
Do you find the trend a bit funky? Or fabulous?
I think I've gone to two too many Tucson gem shows to really appreciate this as a high-fashion look. But they're inexpensive and eyecatching and well, frankly, quite fun.
