While volunteering at Handmade Mart last weekend, I came across these necklaces from bluGrn Design. I really couldn't decide which of her cute necklace creations was my favorite, until I stumbled across her compass necklaces.
I can't tell you how many times, since moving to DC, I've popped out of some Metro Station somewhere wondering where the heck I was and how to get to the place I'd seen on the map. So often there's two or three exits for the metro, so it can be very confusing for a newcomer. So when I saw a necklace with a compass on it, I was sold. I also got one for my fabulous friend Kella, who always leads me in the right direction.
Cute AND practical-- my dad would've been proud.
