This morning wasn't what I would call "happy" per say since I had to drive from Wichita to Kansas City. Upon waking up at 4:15 am to get ready/drive/ and get to work at 8:30 am I forgot that I used a different contact lens solution. I borrowed my parent's since I forgot mine at home and needless to say my eye felt like I had poured straight vinegar in them. After that debacle I had to let my eyes stop looking like I was a stoner and then flush them out with water. SOOOO...I made it back to Kansas City and my eyes have finally recovered. Enough about my "Case of the Mondays" let's talk about jewelry.
Looking at the website: http://www.thecoveteur.com I stumbled upon this lovely jewelry design duo/husband and wife for JOOMI LIM. You can buy their collection at Opening Ceremony and my favorite piece is only $75.00 which is a steal for Opening Ceremony. What I wouldn't give for the blue necklace with all that beadwork in the middle; doesn't it remind you of an elaborate peacock feather? I am trying to invest in more "unique" and non costume jewelry pieces to avoid it deteriorating and not maintaining any value. Do you like their stuff? Check out Opening Ceremonies website for articles title 'Shop Talk' to see more of their stuff and discover other artists in their studios. I HEART IT!
