Jibby and Juna: Fragment Collection

Jibby and Juna carves and cures polymer clay to create the pieces in her "Fragment" Collection.
The way she distresses and paints the polymer, it looks like it is stone. The advantage of the polymer material is that it is lightweight. My personal favorite is the Fragment post earrings in cool green. They are small post earrings but will add easy color to any outfit. I like the green color because it shows off the carving giving it a stronger "stone" effect. They're also very reasonably priced at only $15.

Ann Taylor LOFT: Purple/White Clam Necklace

I was picking up lunch a few weeks back and behind me on line there was this girl wearing this amazing shell necklace. I couldn't stop looking at it and was trying not to act too creepy. I figured it was probably some one-of-a-kind piece she picked up on vacation and was trying to figure out what keywords I could use to search for it. A few days later I was in Ann Taylor LOFT and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the same shell necklace that that girl was wearing. I didn't purchase the Purple/White Clam necklace that day and I'm glad I waited because it's now on sale from $44.00 to $29.99.

Banana Republic: Sabina charm necklace

Banana Republic is right on trend with their collection of Mixed Metal Jewelry. I really like the mixed metal chain necklaces with charms like the Manor keys necklace and of course the Sabina charm necklace. I chose to feature the Sabina charm necklace because of the name (one of sisters names is Sabina) and for the charms. I really like the pyramid stud charms, it gives the necklace a seriously tough edge without being the typical pyramid stud leather chocker.

Forever 21: Crystalline Connector Ring

I've been on the hunt for the perfect knuckle ring and found this knuckle ring from Forever 21. The Crystalline Connector Ring has a great "antiqued" look and color combination. This is a very versatile and could easily be worn with just about anything. A big plus to this find is that it is only $5.80 leaving plenty of money leftover for this adorable dress.

Bing Bang Zuni Pyramid Earrings

For no particular reason, I love post earrings that have a bit of a dangle. The Zuni Pyramid Earrings from Bing Bang have a great balance between the stud and dangle earring. The cone studs could easily stand alone as a stud earring but the way the Swarovski crystal and cabochon accent stones are fanned below the ear lobe make a great stud/dangle earring. They're available in 2 different colors but I'm always partial to silver and turquoise.

t8designs makes these absolutely amazing pieces by repurposing antique items like buckles and brooches. Each piece looks like it is vintage because of it's construction using vintage items but they are constructed during current times so they're up with the current styles making it very hard to pick just one. For example, the necklace in the 2nd picture is very reminiscent of this Madewell necklace but t8designs necklace is muche more uniqe as well as one-of-a-kind having being made using a vintage brooch.

ASOS: Genuine Leather Covered Stud Bangle

I saw this Genuine Leather Covered Stud Bangle from ASOS as part of StyleCaster's ACCESSORIES BLACK OUT! Best Dark Jewels for Fall Collection. I'm always a fan of black and studs so I'm really loving this bangle. StyleCaster is saying this bangle is great for Fall but I think it is also a great item to get now to wear in the summer. With the hotter weather I don't wear rings and necklaces as often so I wear a lot more bracelets. The hotter weather also brings shorter sleeves so you can show off and wear more bracelets and bangles.

Aldo: Schaul

Wow - what a bargain! Aldo's Schaul bangle bracelet set's contain 8 different bangle bracelets for only $15. You can wear them altogether or seperate them to wear alone or mix n' match with bracelets that are already in your collection. I love the metal stud detailing on the widest bracelets and the plain floral engraved bracelets. Bangle bracelets are always in style and can be worn all year round.
