Weekend wants: Silver and gold (and copper and jade)

I have been digging back into my jewelry box this week, and I definitely feel like there are some holes in my game. Here are a few pieces I would love to add to my collection (in that fantasy world where I actually spend money on stuff like this):



I don't have a single bib necklace, and I love the neutral tones of this one - a lot of the bib necklaces I see are kind of over-the-top, which makes them fabulous but a little intimidating to incorporate into my wardrobe. This one would be a great way to add texture to a plain sweater or blazer, but you could still wear it with prints as well.

I have a thing about the full moon. As a kid, I used to go out in the yard at night, climb up in the apple tree and just stare at the full moon. Or when the moonlight would shine in my window, I would wiggle around in bed so that I could see the moon from where I lay. So the idea of being able to wear a full moon around my neck is just fantastic to me.



I was laughing at myself the other day because this is literally the only "crafty" thing I have ever saved on Pinterest. Usually I look at that stuff and just laugh or sigh, because I feel like I have no time to do cute fun crafty stuff these days. But this one caught my eye and I thought, "OK, I could actually do that one." It's really simple and cute, and I think it would be fun to try different combinations of beads (wood? glass?).



I was looking at Alexis Russel's jewelry the other day when A Cup of Jo posted a link - it's really gorgeous, I love the rough finishes she uses. I don't wear bracelets a lot, but this one caught my eye. It's so sophisticated, yet easy to wear.

You didn't think I would get through this list without posting an Etsy link, did you? These barn owl earrings are so adorable, I could die. But they stop short of being too cutesy.

I have more fantasy shopping here on Pinterest, including a gorgeous butterfly necklace and a lightning bolt bracelet! What's on your "want" list right now?
