UMC

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


I think my heart delights in every single piece of jewelry found in the etsy store, Upper Metal Class.

As well as in it's clever name.

As well as that it has gold and silver options.

As well as that it's based in Portland and even though I've never been there I want to live there.

And especially all of the geometric goodness (may or may not be a variety of a certain really fun shape that i like)

I hope you guys have a great day!! It's rainy and grey here, which I love =)

the name is TOO cute.
I can see why you love...seems like your style for sure.
I am smitten with those earrings...so simple, yet you could wear them w all the drama necklaces that never have any earrings to go w and most would overpower..these are understated perfection

I love this! I love "futuristic" jewelry. And I mean that in the best possible way. So sleek and clean and industrial almost. A feminine version of industrial.

a woman's right to shoes said...

This looks like a beautiful little shop. I love the items in the pictures, they are adorable =)

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i really should know better than to click on your etsy shop thinks. you and your good taste!

to answer your question: blogger is being stupid about some of my 'design elements' not showing up proprely. it was like 6 months before i had a proper date stamp on each post. i had to get my little brother, the coding whiz on it. i really need to learn more about this, but the books on html are so huge and intimidating...

Dancing Branflake said...

Uhh... I think you said everything I wanted to say. I love the texture of each piece and the gold and silver. And Portland? I have ALWAYS wanted to live there.

MJ {The Honeypie Archives} said...

Big Hugs,
Yvonne

Diana said...

Dammit Krystal! Your blog makes me want to buy all these things! Just yesterday I told some doctors without borders dudes that I couldn't give them money because I don't have any, and now I just want to buy necklaces. They're coming back today and what am I going to tell them? I can give $0.25 a day for a membership but I just sort of don't want to. I want earrings. Eek! No, I'll do it. Will I? I don't know.
