I’m all about necklaces these days. If I grab one piece of jewelry before I race out of the house –late, as always–it’s going to be something that draws attention towards the boobs and away from the undereye bags. Darn newborns.

I’m thinking about adding one of artist Jen Land’s very pretty little glass pendants to my growing collection. Jen does all the glasswork herself, creating bright, happy color combos in her symbolic Love Blooms collection (mamas will get it right away), or fun Modern/Retro collection with graphic designs like a swanky atomic starburst dangling from a satin cord, or the mod circle-in-a-square shown here.

Every piece is totally one-of-a-klnd, kiln-fired while her son sleeps, and no necklace is more than $34–making it an easy way to dress up the jeans just a smidge.

Notice I didn’t say mom jeans. Nothing can help those. –Liz
