Collar Love

I'm a smitten kitten when it comes to peter pan collars. There's truly something magical and whimsical about them.  It's playfulness certainly brings out the kid in me.  When I discovered the jewelry line, LAB by Laura Busony, I was immediately enamored with her designs.  I was a kid in a candy shop.  Her creatively talented mind and skillful hands craft such amazing metal collar necklaces.  And I also love that she sources vintage finds in some of her designs.

I was so excited when she offered to send me one of her beautiful designs.  I chose the Brass Oxford Collar Bib Necklace (due to it's popularity and overwhelming demand LAB needed to raise their prices and this necklace is now valued at $148.)  Laura, couldn't have described it better; basic, but still a little edgy.  I love it so much.  It's beautifully and perfectly made.  Thank you so much, Laura!  This necklace is surely one of my favorites!

Laura has been kind and generous enough to offer my readers 25% off you purchase from her etsy shop.  Just enter AlohaLAB at check out.  There are so many goodies to choose from.  The hard part will be picking out which one (or ones!).  Happy shopping, loves.
