I love, love, love the chunky blue pearl necklace that Michelle Obama wore for the state dinner with the Camerons last week. I even thought of making it my I Might Make That! Monday entry, although of course there is no tute for it. According to the blogosphere, it is by Tom Binns.
When I googled Obama's and Binns' names together, I found that she has showcased several of his bold pieces in the past few years. Here's one she wore in 2009:
And here's a link to a 2009 article on her love for statement necklaces.
Oh, and speaking of rock star style, Darling Daughter, who has it in spades, was volunteering at SXSW all last week. She texted me on Friday that she was wearing one of my necklaces and a member of the band Dynasty Electric asked her to write down the name of my Artfire store!
Of course I did not know Dynasty Electric was, so I Googled and learned they're a Brooklyn band. (Geez, I hope it was the girl who asked about the necklace and not the guy.)
I'll wind up with a Portlandia clip that said daughter emailed me last week:
She knows her mom!
