Being the vain faerie that I am, I just have to show off something Miss V made for me quite some time ago:
A sinuous and lovely bracelet, made of bits of fused glass.
The colors shift depending on the direction of the light, but all are shades of peacock: metallic hues of chartreuse, aqua, navy. They are swoonily gorgeous.
Alas, I do not have dainty fairy wrists. But I really don't care.
V was originally displeased with this bracelet, because it didn't turn out quite the way she'd hoped. But I LOVE IT. It's the best example of serendipitous beauty that readily comes to hand. It really needs to be worn with something simple and black, so that it can be the star of the show.
(This is about as close to a discussion of fashion as I'm ever going to get, by the way. So if you've come here looking for pointers on the season's hottest eye colors, keep movin', Jack.)
