Chelsea Girl, who’s still in the midst of her Seaside rendezvous (so adorable), managed to pull herself away from the sand and sun long enough to point me to a couple of pieces of jewelry I love, from Barbara Klar of clearmetals.com.
She has this awesome pieces she calls ‘Victorian Skull Lockets’ – and given my fetish for padlocks and other things that lock, I think these things rule – though these are lockets, not actual locks (I’d dig seeing a working padlock version, though!) I’d love to have a look at one of these first-hand, though alas, she’s over on the other coast.
She doesn’t list prices, though she’s she’s happy to quote if you contact her and I’ll post ‘em here if she gives me an ok on that.
Awesome pieces, I tell ‘ya. She has a few skull rings, though they’re a bit girly for my taste, and a lot of other lovely pieces, so her site’s worth a look-over.
