Perennial Beauty no. 26: "Me gusta mucho."

Mapping your Bauble and Chain

Perhaps Find By Click could tell the exact location of every Starbucks in Manhattan and Cory Archangel could provide you with the exact latitude and longtitude points, but only Leslie of Bauble and Chain can navigate you to the finest "bauble and chain" (read: jewelry) throughout Brooklyn. As a former Brooklynite and hardcore jewelry shopper, I contacted Leslie about her mapping of Brooklyn jewelry shops on Google maps, and she posted about the Gwendolyn and Lily necklaces from the Urban Bloom shop. [Thanks, Leslie!]

New look: Business cards

Instead of putting an image of my jewelry on my card, I'd like to opt for something floral, something sophisticated, something chic but still organic. Using courier for site's address font face as well as underlining of my URL adds a bit of irony and makes me think classic, indie, and URBAN.

New Series

Since a lot of Urban Bloom pieces found a new home (in a store in New Zealand), there's room for these new lovelies in my shop. I'm excited to offer the Lucy Belle neclace in a variety of colors - blue, green, peach/orange.

I Love Thee Collection

The Bridal Wish List, a blog which scours the internet for all the modern brides' wants and needs, chose pieces from Urban Bloom's shop as today's must-have item. I'll let her tell you:

For me, one of the most important accessories for a bride is her jewelry. It definitely makes/breaks the look. You really have to pick the right style for your dress or else it will overpower your entire look. Enter Urban Bloom NYC. Urban Bloom is a New York City boutique that creates the perfect earrings to compliment your look. Visit their site to choose the perfect pair. Here are a few of my favorites:

The layered look

The chains can be worn separately or combined as pictured. The lavender is a lovely shade of purple with just a bit of sparkle.

Designer's favorite

The crystal is cut in the most intricate shape and when worn, the leaf rests perfectly on top. A true favorite of mine.

Fall into Winter

As I promised, I've restocked the leaves that everyone loved from last season. Available in silver and gold.

A Hella Good Spree

Did you hear? Recently, Hella Good, the creator of the most scrumptuous bath products, has opened a one-stop shop of handmade wearables featuring new jewelry styles by Urban Bloom.

Dainty blooms

These little flowers are so sweet and versatile. As it turns out, they've become my favorite accessory and both my sister and I are wearing them nonstop!

New additions to the shop: Spring 2007 cont'd

Are you enjoying Spring? My last Spring update sold out so quickly that I decided not to wait to summer to showcase the most beautiful floral lockets. Newly created pieces include: Chica, Liza, and Beatrice. They look great paired over a long tunic dress or other solid blouse. Add leggings, primary colored flats, and you're good to go.

Also not to be overlooked are the recent addition to the Perennial Beauty collection - PB. no.22, PB. no.25, PB. no. 26. What could possibly be more elegant than one of these delicate creations paired with a strapless dress? Remember each of the beads are handpainted and there are no two alike.
