I'm a sucker for initials, especially when they're incorporated into cute pieces of jewelry. Bonnie of Gwen Delicious Jewelry collects new and old objects and turns them into unique pieces you can wear.
The pendants of her Letterpress Necklaces (pictured, $39 each) were actually used in hand-cranked printing presses (whoa, old). They hang from a customizable-length chain, and are made out of solid brass. I picked "A" for obvious reasons, but other letters of the alphabet are also cool.
I know what some of you are thinking: "But, Anne -- I'm more a typewriter key girl than a letterpress chick." Well, whaddayaknow! She makes those too. Isn't life grand when everyone wins?
