I completely missed your question, Adorefaith...
My apologies..
To answer -
About the designer...
Quote:
Ach Ach Liebling | USA

Wordsmith, plasticsmith and all-around bricoleur, Joanna Petrone sells her hand-fabricated jewelry under the company name Ach Ach Liebling (which means "oh oh darling" in German). Born and raised in downtown Manhattan, Joanna migrated to California to attend Stanford, where she wrote a thesis on lesbian pulp fiction of the 1950s and graduated with a degree in English Literature. An impassioned reader and writer still, Joanna amuses herself by inserting language jokes and games and storybook allusions into her jewelry works, sometimes by nature and sometimes by design.
A runaway art project involving plastics and paperback book covers was the impetus behind Joanna's first experimental jewelry line. A hearty stint researching and experimenting with the processes and materials led to Joanna to developed the handsome, durable line of plastic pendants that are now a mainstay of Ach Ach Liebling.
In addition to hand-fabricated plastics and printing processes, Joanna uses metal, wood, lucite, celluloid, often incorporating vintage materials into her work. She takes inspiration from old postcards, Fassbinder movies, zoos, Victorian children's books, Antarctica, 19th c. naturalist field guides and ornithology handbooks, deep sea exploration, cities, and candy.
A perennial student, Joanna is currently learning metalsmithing at the Revere Jewelry Academy in San Francisco.
*The necklace itself -
Quote:
Hangs on 18" of red brass chain. Pendant is hand-sawn from plastic and print is protected from the elements by a thin resin layer. Portrait is approx. 1" tall.

Best bit - the necklace is only $36!

I've been obsessed with this necklace for a long time... I found one very similar to it, but passed it up because I thought it was too expensive. (Now I don't. ) Now I will suffer forever.

So it's not extravagant or really avant-garde, but I love it.

In light of this thread..
I am beginning to ponder a career as
an accessories/jewelry editor..?
I love the search & acquisition aspect of it
so much it seems...

Recent finds...

unineck.jpg ceramicnecklace.jpg

pewterbluependant.jpg sculptpendant.jpg

Love the primitive + abstract feel of these...

Great stuff, Pavement.
I esp. love the first two..!
