Where the wild things are?

Jewelry is women's best friend, for me, especially ostentatiously ornamented jewelry.  Evidences proved that flashy jewelry not just exists in modern era, but way Before Christ was born. The ancient society loves animals and they wish to empower themselves with all sorts of mysterious magic, should it be from the mother nature, from unknown spirit, or even animals, ancient people adorn themselves with excess accessories.  I stumbled Legion of Honer museum today while hiking around the neighborhood of Lands End trails in San Francisco. I love the grand front entrance and the miniature pyramid which mimics the one outside of Musee' du Louvre in Pairs. I am also swooned by those golden animal jewelry from 4th Century B. C. exhibited in the museum. They are not only the symbol of almighty power but also the inspirational making of modern jewelry. 

I was lucky that I found a pair of tiger eye/horn necklace by Iosselliani this season and love its loud details. They are automatically a statement piece and a statement for saying I am fashion-forward, right?
