If You Liked It Then You Shoud Of Put a Ring On It

I'm sure you have noticed if you've ever pursued the archives, but I love jewelry. I love jewelry with an edge to it. My first sponsor is the awesome edgy jewelry boutique Betsy and Iya and I'm pretty sure I'm going to get this piece. Some of my favorite places to shop for shiny things are Etsy, Buffalo Exchange and the (now closed) boutique The Shining in Dallas. I've been acquiring a lot of jewelry lately. Here is a small sampling.

Nathan got me this gorgeous pirate ship ring at The Shining the day before the shop closed it's doors forever. (I already miss it.)

I bought myself these clever silver hoops/octopus tentacles the same day.

This gorgeous studded leather cuff formerly belonged to a co-worker and when he sold it to Buffalo Exchange, I snapped it right up.

But my favorite recent purchase has got to be this massive silver two finger ring I got at Buffalo Exchange...

The center of the roses is skulls. So perfect. And the ring has such heft to it, it feels great on my hand.

I'll try and get some pics of some of my other recent acquisitions and post them soon as well. Where do you shop for jewelry? What's your favorite style?

I'm not really a jewelry wearer, but etsy makes me wish I was. My "favorites" are half full of jewelry.

I've been looking for a two finger ring for a while, I'm jealous you've found such a great one. You seriously have the best job, some of my favorite pieces of yours have come from your job!

Hey! I went to high school with Betsy! Small world. I love the octopus tentacle earrings. I get a lot of my jewelry from etsy - I love unique handmade or vintage pieces.
