I am quite the nervous nell tonight...I have a job interview tomorrow and I want it to go perfectly!
To calm my nerves (and procrastinate about prepping myself) I spent some time finding some beautiful jet pieces on etsy!
I have a real thing for Victorian hand pieces right now. Not that I own any, but I am thinking of someday starting a collection. As this brooch demonstrates, they are graceful and mysterious.
This mourning locket is not photographed so well, but I love the image of the downward-flowers on the jet case. Romantic, tragic, haunting...
p.s. My absolute favorite place to drool over vintage jewelry is Erie Basin, a shop one of my best friends introduced me to. I wish they both were in SF closer to me instead of so far across the country!
