Literature + Trend = High Fashion

How awesome are these high fashion necklaces designed by Spanish artist, Victoria Contreras??!

Ok, admittedly they are over-the top, but here it's the season of Mardi Gras Balls, and gowns, opulent jewelry, and high fashion are de rigueur. I am way too conservative to pull off this look, but they sure are a way to get noticed!

According to the artist's website, she only has a handful of quotes that she uses in her designs....I think a gorgeous Shakespearean quote would be lovely or something gothic from Poe would be fabulous! Literature and bling!

Amazing! Some people obviously have more creative juices flowing than others. I would so wear something like this IF I had a place to wear it. But I don't, so I won't. Thanks for telling us about it.

(love your new header pic, too)
