Back to the Jewelry Basics
So, as you've noticed, I've become a huge fan/collector of oversized jewelry of late. There are the souped-up friendship bracelets, lucite bangles, metal cuffs, Fenton/Fallon for J.

I want people to see it and think of me, and I want it to become an irreplaceable part of my everyday look. So the hunt continues as I consider my options.
