Fly Me to the Moon

A few days ago, I featured a necklace from jewelry website Alisha Louise, and I've decided to give this site a little more exposure. Today I was browsing through their whole selection, and I was floored. I want everything. I think that the look sort of evokes Frank Gehry for Tiffany, but a little more playful and a lot more affordable. I don't think anything even surpasses two hundred dollars, which is admittedly more than I have at the moment, but still. Some of the pieces are vaguely architectural like Gehry's, while others feature cloisonné pendants with whimsical little hand-painted scenes. These are a few of my favorites:

"Stack" earrings, $90

"Cattails" pendant, $130


"Wheat" necklace, $92

"Star" earrings, $45Ugh, painfully lovely. All of the enamel pieces, like the star earrings, come in about two dozen different colors. Think how sweet and eye-catching they would be with a big ol' gray sweater and my black accordian pleat skirt. How pathetic is it that I am constructing outfits around jewelry that I do not, as of yet, own? Well, my birthday is next month, so if any of you fashionable people out there care about the well-being of my jewelry box...

That cattail necklace is gorgeous! but i would never spend EUR 130 on it... I have simillar pendants that i found at secondhand stores for EUR 5 or so

I like the first pair of earrings, but they're really expensive!

I hope you get them for your birthday :)

Ooo, love the cattails. That's a nice change from all of the floral manifestatios in jewelry. I'm adding this site to my favorites.
