Flower Power

As I was flipping through the pages of the new fall Vogue the other day, I was astonished to see this $495 necklace (listed in "Finds Under $500" as if THAT is a bargain!) by J. Crew:

 J. Crew?  But that looks just like one of Wendy's necklaces from bendywho!  And her necklaces are all original designs and even the most elaborate cost half that!  Here are some of Wendy's designs:











What is the saying?  "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?" Well, hmff!  I suppose you could look at it that way, but, considering Wendy has been making these beauties and selling them on Etsy for the past several years it seems to me that this "flattery" could have come with a paycheck!  Never mind that.  Now you know about Wendy's designs.  They can not only be seen at her Etsy shop, but, also at her website wendybakerdesign.

  1. $500 is a bargain for a matress or flight, not a costume jewelry type necklace. (P.S. I quite enjoy costume jewelry).
