1 Jun

zelda necklaceWhat better way for a geeky gal to show off her love of videogames than through her amazing jewelry collection?

Lickety Cut can help you expand your current selection of jewelry, in fact, you may end up amassing a stockpile of magnificent accessories, and who could complain about that?

If you’re the type to include your BFF in your necklace choices, Lickety Cut also has some cool friendship necklaces- the Health and Mana necklace set is my favorite.


Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 5/12/12- Pica Pica Press

mst3k pendantIn the not too distant future, next Sunday, A.D…

I love me some Mystery Science Theater 3000, and I want everyone to know it.  If you love and miss MST3K too, wait until you see this.  Laura from Pica Pica Press has done us all a favor and created this stunning MST3K necklace.  And the best part is that you can insert a picture into the pendant as if it is the movie the boys are watching.  How great is that?

If you love jewelry, but you’re not as big of a fan of MST3K as me, you still need to take a peek at Laura’s shop.  She also designs Space Invader pins, Pac-Man earrings and Triforce necklaces!


Melvin’s Pick of the Day- 5/2/12- Molecular Muse

2 May

BFF moleculeDo you have a BFF and want to show the world that you have a BFF, but you’re sick and tired of the same old BFF necklaces?  I wouldn’t blame you really, those heart necklaces are a bit old at this point.

Raven Hanna of Molecular Muse wants to add a little geeky science to your BFF relationship by hand crafting DNA and RNA base pairs.  You see, genes are written in DNA and RNA molecules by using a code of chemical units.  These chemical units are called bases, and these bases form pairs.  For example, DNA consists of pairs of adenine and thymine.  RNA consists of pairs of adenine and uracil.

What in the world did I just say?  If you want to show the world how geeky you and your BFF are, buy this necklace.  If you don’t have a BFF but you love the style of this gorgeous jewelry, check out the other molecules that Raven has replicated.  Who wouldn’t want an oxytocin pendant?
