a fun surprise…

September 11th | older posts

*edited*i added photos for those of you who asked!

while i was getting a pedicure today (it was wonderful!!) i was flipping through this issue of US magazine (i know, it’s kinda trashy) and stumbled upon one of my necklaces being advertised by a store that carries my wares. i’m a dork, so i had to tell everyone in the salon that my necklace was pictured. they were saying, “oh, you have that necklace?” and i’m saying, “no, i designed that necklace!!”. the ladies at the salon let me take the magazine home :) it was such a fun surprise!!i look a lot happier than kate & owen…
it’s the open circle design

    I saw that too and they are marked up to $80 some dollars. Don’t raise your prices on us!

    it’s in the back under ‘shop-a-thon, shop these fab & fun styles’, page 110.

    mind you, it’s being advertised. it’s not like the magazine discovered me. but fun nonethless :)
