Miss November Studio! (something fun)

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of blogging going on here at In Pursuit of Pretty Things. Both Kathryn and I have been swamped with work (and some play) these past few days, so while we've got lots of stuff to share with you, we haven't had any time at all to actually do the sharing.

*Deep breath*

So, we promise to get posting soon: we have more Future:Standard stuff, new July Anthro Catalog stuff (squeee!) and Nordstrom Anniversary Sale stuff too (yay!!!). Not to mention other random stuff (Vegas? Oh, wait, what happens there stays there. Ummm...Anime Expo, for you Japanophiles out there, and later in July, San Diego Comic Con!). But, we're not just about making promises for future fun in this post - we're here to give you a head-start on spending down your July pretty-things budget (*cough* need our help to do that, right?).

Miss November Studio (of my fantastic umbrella necklace and super fun retro space-gun necklace) is trying to put together some funds for school (yay, education!) and is offering 20% off any purchase on items in her Etsy store right now, with promo code: FACEBOOK.

(How CUTE is this necklace???)

Or, you could do a whole garden (which I kinda wanna do...):

I love the idea of supporting local artists - real people! - who create such beautiful things. Sandra is just amazing and I love her work (you know how often I reach for those necklaces). Also, in case you were curious, the Umbrella Necklace is still available for order (though a lot of her other pieces are disappearing fast - there was an adorable ladybug necklace I had my eye on, which has completely vanished already! Waaaa!) 

Happy shopping, and thanks for reading!


  1. Thanks for the heads-up!  I've been eying one of Sandra's pieces forever and finally took the plunge.  It was still really pricey, but I too love Sandra's work and it helps justify the purchase a bit to think about supporting her education.

  2. SUCH pretty and unique jewelry! I'm sad that almost all of it involves copper, though, which I can't wear.

  3. KL- I can make things entirely in silver, I just really love the contrast of metals. I do have an industrial grade sealant to keep it from turning your skin green. It's not hazardous and keeps it safe from uv and chemicals that can etch the metal and cause the green verdigris.

    Convo me if you want to do something custom!
