2011 Photo Throwdown: Day 65

(iPhone – March 6, 2011)

Taken at the Cinderella Project’s “Boutique Day” today. The charity has quickly become one of my local favourites.

Custom necklaces

From my friend, the curiously multi-talented Heather White, aka TheWhiteHeat, recently of Vancouver but now of Calgary. I’m a big fan of chunky, metal jewellery — chains, cuffs and rings worn alone as statement pieces in gun metal, black —  and I like the contrast of the delicate silk florals of the necklace in the top pic. They are created as one-of-a-kind pieces. Available by special order at thewhiteheat@gmail.com.
