BEATRICE HOLIDAY










Seeing this jewelry designer at the Renegade Craft Fair this past weekend in LA really brought me back to my youth. I used to wear a single chain link around my neck as a good luck mojo when I mountain biked. This Venice based designer has truly taken that idea to a trendy, fashion forward, gorgeous place! Check out more products offered on their website. / LINK
