When you're at market, and you're working a booth for 12 hours a day, you kinda get to be friends with the folks next door. On our left was a lady selling boleros made out of coke can tops (we did not become her friend.) No lie. And people were *actually* buying them. I wanted to put a sandwich board on myself and picket in front of the booth to save people from walking in. Awful. Thank goodness right there on the other side was a sweet girl with a booth full of feminine but slightly rock-n-roll jewelry by Charlene K. Charlene K is California based, and we all really fell in love with her dainty necklaces mixed with big stones and big, hand-hammered hoops. A couple of my favorite pieces are below. They would look fab pared with all the fun spring florals right around the corner.
The moral of this post is just because things are eco-friendly doesn't mean you should wear them, and look for Charlene K jewelry! (And, don't judge Charlene on her website. It's bad. The photos below are courtesy of Flaunt in LA where you can buy these pieces online.)
