Jewelry That Speaks to Me


Even though I’m so happy with my little woolfie necklace from Her Amagingness Wendy Brandes there’s no such thing as enough jewelry (or anything else.)

This wolf pendent above, by dead ponies, is carrying his tail for some reason, and he’s saying “Hey, buy me and you’ll be on your way to collecting   wolf-themed jewelry!”


This “godless” necklace by brookadelphia is acrylic, not as nice as gold but much more affordable. I hear it saying “Buy me you idiot, I’m only $48!”


Look at these adorably sinister zodiac babies from Anomaly Jewelry. The conjoined twins is Gemini, the mermaid is Capricorn. The whole collection is great. Even when I factor in the Crypto-hipster aspect, I find it irresistible.   I hear it calling out, “Hey, admit how much you love retro-looking baby things!”

Are you hearing “BUY!” or are you hearing “Admit you are powerless over shopping, and your life has become unmanageable?”

    I was hanging around the house moping the other day and my husband said, “For god’s sake woman, just go and spend some money!” and like magic, mopiness dispersed. So the emotional shopping can work. The compulsive shopping, not so much.

    PS. I like the Godless one the best. Maybe you could get someone to make you a gold one?

  2. Skip the babies and mermaid it does sugggest too much time on hands! Or on the other hand shopping genius – as in retrofethist speak.
    On being asked on her inspiration for her new collection Sister Wolf mentioned I felt the devil was in the details and conjourned(ism) gave more breadth to my collection…..

    Are you trying to hurt me?

  4. Queen Marie says:

    You know very well, you can never ever have enough necklaces.
    I command you to buy whatever the hell you desire.
    That’s a Royal Command you know.
    You can’t ignore that…

  5. you should always do what jewelry tells you to do. And clothing and shoes, don’t piss them off by not obeying their demands.

  6. WCGB says:

    I wish (well, kinda wish) that buying worked for me. If I try to shop to cheer myself up, it just makes me think about why I got mopey in the first place (usually some intractable problem), and I realize that buying won’t help. Oddly, thinking how happy you are with the green jacket does help (please never confess if you fall out of love with that jacket). And the jacket inspired to order some awesome green clogs.

    So see– “buy it forward” is a category. Or I’m a schadenfreude-ing?

    Don’t buy that cheap shit!

    It will only serve to remind you of your weakness!

    Give all your love to the Wendy B gold wolf instead!

    OBEY ME! We must keep each other strong!

    Your loving sponsor,

  8. WendyB says:

    I think I heart you, Annemarie.

    And besides, Sister W., don’t you want to save your money for the adorable chicken necklace I have coming up?

  9. Deni says:

    I agree with Annemarie . . . be strong . . . there’s nothing the like the golden wolf . . . (the Zodiac babies are cute . . . for a minute).

  10. hammie says:

    not feeling the crap fake jewellery thing either. Save your lovin for Wendi B.
    And if you need a quick fix – buy lipstick! it is the nicorette or methadone of compulsive shopping. and it moisturises your lips.

  11. Anne says:

    It’s about time someone made REAL versions of these common themed jewelry!! Turns the barely bearable ‘word/name’ necklaces and high school zodiac junk into actually desirable items. Gonna go check out the deformed babies zodiac stuff. Thanks for some meat to chew.

  12. Sister Wolf says:

    Skye – Yes, you’re right, a gold one.

    Make Do -HAhahaha! I need to see your paper on retro-fetishes, seriously.

    Mark – SHIT, sorry Mark!

    Queen Marie – As the Saint who bequeathed the Cunt Necklace, your word is law.

    fashion herald -That has been my M.O. thus far in life.

    WCGB -Buy it Forward = I FUCKING LOVE THIS!

    annemarie – Okay fine.

    WendyB – Go ahead and heart her, you’ll be glad you did.

    Deni – Thank you, I will try.

    hammie – How many lipsticks may I buy, per week?? The one I’m wearing is dry and cakey.

    Anne – YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Miggs says:

    The wolf necklace is actually from Deadly Ponies, a New Zealand brand. They’ve been sucking an awful lot of my paycheck recently.

  14. Sister Wolf says:

    Miggs – If I had a paycheck, I’m pretty sure I’d be in the same position.
