My jewelry collection is starting to look like a day at the zoo! I’ve always been attracted to animal-inspired accessories and recently my metal mammal collection has multiplied. Check out the creative creatures I wear around my neck, wrists & fingertips…
Meet my ‘pets’…
My ‘gentle-giant’ gold-plated ring from Anthropologie is giant in size and the statement it makes. The elephant ring adds a safari-inspired element to my style.
Bald eagles were once on the endangered species list and this ring was just that when I came across it! The gold-plated eagle ring with diamond-encrusted eyes was no longer available in my standard size, so I had to settle with a smaller one; now my bird of pray sits perfectly perched on my pinkie.
My RRRaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Ring! I bought this vintage sterling silver roaring bear ring at the Randolph Street Market. This rare ring is fashionable, fabulous & fierce!
My delicate feather cuff from Anthropologie, single feather pendant from Free People, and feather drop earrings (from somewhere in Arizona) add a light, airy touch to any outfit.
My red dragon ring is as abstract as the mythological creature it represents. This bold Bakelite bobble has you thinking outside the box when trying to envision it…just like you must do when listening to the many myths of the fire-breathing, bat-wing serpent/lizard thing. P.S. It’s another Randolph Street Market find of mine!
The vintage bird necklace that my sister gave me for my birthday years ago has become a staple around my neck nearly every day since.
The iridescent “eyes” of peacock plumage are vibrant in color and a bold accessory that I let hang from my ears!
Real snakes are slimy & gross, but my black enamel, gold-plated serpent cuff sparkles with diamond-encrusted elegance.
From silver t0 gold, 4-legged to feathery, I’ve adopted these animals – and I give them the same tender loving care as the real animals they replicate :)
