sorry for the cringey bare hand selfie
 (helfie?? ringie??)
 but check out this teeny tiny ring


I love my birthday. 

I mean, seriously, check out my instagram/twitter/general internet haunts when it's getting close.
 (as in, like, two months off) 

I pass up no opportunity to tell everyone that I was born on October 2nd 1997. 
Naturally, I wear birthstones all over errythang
but it can be quite hard to find anything thats not basically paste mounted on plastic.

So when the lovely Lorien at Chinchar Maloney
 offered me the chance to customize my own birthstone ring,
 I jumped for it like a five year old at a pinata.

The product is an absolutely beautiful and dainty gold ring with my birthstone, 
pink (obviously) tormaline and my favorite gemstone, amethyst.
which, ps, is used to put out happy vibes, which we can all use a couple extra of

 It's handmade an incredibly sturdy, which is fantastic with my
er..
...track record.

Every piece is made by hand
 (thats actually my ring being brought into existence in the first photo) 
 in Portland by the Chinchar/Maloney family, who've been running this show since 2010.
 Each family member has their own part,
and it comes together in the form of some gorgeous jewelry.

I love that it's so subtle but is still a standout personal piece. 
Getting to choose my own stones also created an instant bond for me. 
I want to wear it CONSTANTLY. 

Could be a bit of a problem with the amount of clothes digging I do, 
but hey, 
it's sparkly.


Just like my birthday outfit. 
Which I'll be wearing on my birthday. 
In two months.

ps. 
MY BIRTHDAY IS TWO MONTHS FROM TODAYYYYY

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous, I definitely know what you mean about things not really being well made etc, and this is so beautifully subtle but so unique and cute. I've never really worn my birthstone before, you inspire me gal!

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

Just remember:

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
