I am often in awe of jewelry that is not necessarily right for me. When it comes to picking out jewelry for myself, I go for the miniature and impossibly delicate. That’s kind of sad for me because I also love all things lapis. That gorgeous stone — like pieces of the night sky. I never tire of looking at it. Lapis has a funny habit of being invited into bigger and bolder pieces. (Perhaps, that is because it is a fairly soft stone and it is more durable in bigger chunks.)
This last weekend, my husband and I made a stop at the Union Street Festival in San Francisco. There, among the many booths of handmade goods, food, and services, I found this little gem:
Tiffany Rodgers Bean of Lolabean makes many sweet, delicate items and it is worth checking out her other work. With this piece, I love being able to have my favorite stone showcased so simply and in just the right amount.
