I recently spotted the brass and enamel, avocado/pink/cobalt Rio Collar (seen top left) at Legion, one of my new favorite stores in San Francisco. Unfortunately, I didn't buy it when I was there, and it's been haunting me ever since. With my birthday is coming up, I think I'll put it (and everything else seen here) on my wish list.
Dream Collective is a stunning line of artistic, original jewelry by Los Angeles designer Kathryn Bentley, who also has a brick and mortar store in Southern California.
What's especially remarkable to me is the diversity in Bentley's work. With many jewelers, everything starts to look the same after a while, but her charming variety of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings, is versatile and constantly unique. Wear with any kind of outfit and make a beautiful and fashionable statement.
