And, what's that you say? Creative title for today's post? Oh yes, it is most definitely a Wheel of Fortune inspired "Before and After" phrase. You're impressed.
Okay, on to the actual substance of this post...
I'm having an arm party and you're all invited! Seriously, I know it's taken me forever but ya'll, I am a perfectionist with a minor case of OCD so for an occasion such as this, every detail must be artfully crafted. These are the beautiful pieces that I tend to wear on the daily. I wanted a set that would make enough of a statement without being too overwhelming, and with a design that would coordinate with anything I might wear. With that said, let me introduce you to Velina's Victoria, one of Pardes' bracelets from the Amozonite collection, and Velina's Eve! I discovered Pardes on Etsy and fell in love with the gold mesh cord and light blue bead stunner. As for Velina's beauties, I do want to take a hot second to discuss the brand- in one word...okay two words, truly beautiful. Beautiful philosophy behind the beads, and beautiful pieces themselves. (Oh, and did I mention beautiful ladies behind the scenes? I had the absolute pleasure of meeting and getting to know one of them, Tina, my Freshman year and I am so proud and inspired by the business she has built!) In a recent interview with Exodus Mag, Tina had this to say, "I get my inspiration from the people around me...Everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way and I think their jewelry should be nothing shy of that."
...Are you swooning over this business or what, gals??? (You too, gents, because don't you even worry, Velina has a line for men. Fair and square.)
