This Month’s JewelMint Acquisitions

with one comment

I joined JewelMint a few months back, with pieces designed by Kate Bosworth and Cher Coulter. So far, I have been very happy with my monthly acquisitions. I picked up today the indulgent cocktail ring and pair of mod square bangles below for just $19.99, thanks to a Memorial Day coupon code. Visit jewelmint.com to see their full collection. Keep in mind, they are constantly adding new looks, so even if you don’t see something you love one month, you’ll probably see three you love the next month. At least that has been my experience thus far.

Vintage Cuff Links

with 2 comments

I love vintage cuff links, especially when paired with an oversized ruffle-front tuxedo shirt over leggings, so you can imagine my delight as I passed by Dustmuffin today and saw these beauties in the window. Dustmuffin’s proprietors are so friendly and have an infectious enthusiasm that isn’t too sales pushy. They’re also quite knowledgeable. For example, I was told that the 1950s-era tropical cuff links below were hand painted and the iridescent effect inside was created using morpho butterfly wings. If you look closely you can see the veins. Fascinating! This is particularly rare nowadays as ripping the wings off of butterflies to make jewelry is somewhat frowned upon.

I also picked up the vintage aurora borealis cuff links below, which are quite stunning. The giant cocktail stones are perfect for women who love to wear french cuffs. Both of these sets of vintage cuff links were under $20 each. And they have more too. I might go back later for the 1960s-era red enamel cuff links I saw in the window.

Dustmuffin isn’t a vintage store, but they do carry some lovely vintage pieces and handmade jewelry made from re-purposed vintage stones, etc. It’s a great local shop to buy gifts. Definitely stop in if you’re in the neighborhood. Dustmuffin is located at  3517 W. Sunset in Silver Lake, 90026.
