Very Pretty Things

Let me introduce you to Misa's jewelry

These are just a few of my favorite things.

I was given these hoops by my ever-wonderful sister-in-law who always gives the perfect gifts
and I have worn them at least three times a week for the last three (?) years.

Misa grew up in Hawaii and Micronesia, uses nature as an inspiration for her designs, and uses wax casting (carving designs into wax then casting to solidify metal) to make these beauties.

I have my eye on this which also, as many of her pieces do, comes in silver. I seem to be in a gold mood today.
From what I hear she is a lovely person as well, so we can feel extra-good about giving our money to her.
