Thing o’ the day: necklaces of spoons, airplanes and other inanimate objects

I love jewelry. I also love things that are small. I also love things that are random, shiny, semi-precious and bird-themed. I know, I know, I had you until the bird thing, but I will give you a pass for this. I can’t say I understand it, because owls and quails and buntings and tanagers are adorable, but so it goes. Anyways, I digress. These necklaces are amazing… (more photos after the jump)

The Capitol building! An airplane! An expresso! An envelope with a little letter inside! So small, so understated (small pendant, short chain), and wonderfully eclectic. They are also inexpensive (think $30-50) and their designer Daisy Bandera-Duplantier of Lanyapi Designs, is DC-based. You must look at them (and perchance buy them) here:

OR if you like to see things in person and try things on, I know Nana Boutique stocks her designs. If there is a particular necklace you want, I would call Nana ahead to see if they have it available. Nana is a favorite boutique of mine. It is right in my neighborhood with tons of restaurants and shops around it that I will eventually blog about. You should go. Nana DC, 1528 U Street NW, Washington, DC 20009. (202)667-6955

  3. Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?
    I am completely new to operating a blog however I
    do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
