Take heart, weary warriors. Warmth and sunshine may be aspirational ideas in April, but if our still-frigid winds and snowfall don’t speak to what composer Igor Stravinsky called “the mystery and great surge of creative power in spring,” this hand-made necklace by Alexis Bittar does: natural stones in blues and greens, delicate vines of crystal and pewter—a gift from Mother Earth to you.
“I love the earthy stones paired with mixed metals and a little sparkle,” says Bumbershute jewelry buyer Amanda Rose of the single turquoise-and-chrysocolla necklace she ordered for the store, $595 @ Bumbershute, 5014 France Ave. S., Edina, 952-475-2684, bumbershute.com. “It can go glam or with jeans and a tee. It’s just waiting for the right woman.” Go try it on and tweet your photo and reaction @MnMoMag with the hashtag #earthybeauty.
