holiday bling at janet jewelry

origami tsuru + hawaiian quilt pendants

janet jewelry has got a lot of goodies stocked for the holidays. the sterling silver origami necklace is currently on sale and the perfect gift for brides-to-be (and sure beats folding 1001 cranes) while the hawaiian quilt pendant is another lovely idea for the more traditional ladies on your list.

the taken ring from janet's postmodern candy line is available in a rainbow of colors and a cute idea for friends who seem to attract fellas who can't take a hint. and, if you really want to impress that special someone, you have to check out the gold vermeil/pink tourmaline ms. charming earrings from the one-of-a-kind collection. no worries if it's a bit out of your price range since more affordable options of this design can be found in the limited edition department.

janet jewelry redux

there's always something fresh happening over at janet jewelry, which must make her an inspired and busy bee with all the new goodies that are being created in her nyc workshop. one of the newer designs are these tablet necklaces that can be customized with your favorite someone's name or a word that just makes you happy.

and for the girl who can never have too many earrings, be sure to click over before thu, aug 31st when janet's earring clearance comes to an end. there are lots to choose from (like these pretty mother of pearl drops) but quantities are limited so don't procrastinate.


malia mills hits the beach

island girl + mariposa

one of the best things to happen to swimsuits is the creation of separates. matchy-matchy sizing may work in the land of supermodels but it doesn't usually fit the rest of us.

malia mills was one of the first designers to introduce swimwear separates which made shopping for a swimsuit a tad less miserable. another reason to love the hawaii born/nyc-based designer is that she featured real women modeling her collection years before dove's latest ad campaign.

when you're ready to ditch the baggy tee, check out malia mill's lovely beach cover ups (mariposa shown above) which does double duty when paired with your favorite pair of jeans.


janet jewelry

lady luck + danger boy

while public school kids were making paper trays in woodworking & key chains in metal shop, the students over at punahou were dabbling in silversmithing. this is one of the more interesting nuggets i picked up at janet jewelry's website. island girl/jewelry designer janet masamitsu is based in nyc now where she creates a nice mix of affordable pieces like these lady luck earrings (perfect for that next trip to vegas).

in addition to sterling silver styles, janet also designs limited edition pieces like the triple drop smokey quartz necklace and many of her pieces can be customized. she also designs stuff for guys like these danger boy cufflinks that captain jack sparrow might fancy (arrr!). shop online or visit her boutique when you're in nyc.
