I didn’t take outfit pictures today. You’re not missing much.
Can we talk about Wendy Brandes instead? I remember seeing pieces by Wendy in fashion magazines long before I found her blog, and when I did find her blog, I was hooked immediately. She is smart, funny and full of historical information. Yesterday she wrote about her wolf themed pieces and I felt like it was time for me to write about her too.
I’m sure if you’ve ever seen her site, you have a favorite piece. Mine is the Isabella Wolf-Fang necklace. I have never bought a “real” piece of jewelry for myself, but I have decided to start saving for this one.
I’m not sure how long it will take. It’s not cheap, and for me, it’s most definitely what you would call an investment piece. It will take me a while. But look at it. It is perfect. It’s in 3D, finished all the way around. The detail is amazing, and the piece itself is so very “me” it practically screams at me every time I see it. It also comes in gold, but I’m going to keep my goal reasonable for now.
Oh my gosh, how STUNNING is that?
So that’s my personal favorite. That’s the piece I want to make happen in my life.
But here are some other pieces I have dreamed about once or twice. I tend to be enamored or her darker pieces (who me? Imagine that).
Queen of Scotts earrings
These are like the grown up version of the snake earrings I made for myself. These are the real thing, while mine are pale shades. These are stunners.
Bat Necklace with Agate
This also comes without the agate, but I like it with. It’s got a sense of humor, and I love that in a piece. And, as with all of Wendy’s pieces, the detail is amazing. A little goth, a lot glam.
Juana Skull Necklace
Have you ever seen a cuter skull necklace? I have not. And it has bling bling eyes. Yes, please.
Borgia Poison Ring
This ring is so serious I feel like I could do anything I want. I feel certain it would give me super powers.
Onyx Skull Ring
Whereas this one, this one would give me the power to EAT YOUR SOUL, and remain fabulous and stunningly adorned whilst doing so. This ring would make going to the dark side appealing.
Everyone deserves a piece of Wendy Brandes before they die. And I’ve decided to make it happen for me. I’ll let you know just as soon as I’ve raised the funds. Oh who am I kidding, you’ll know. I’ll be wearing that fang every day. EVERY DAY. I’m excited.
What's Your favorite piece?
