sunday was a pleasant day to do jewelry shopping in soho - i started at sample sale of dinasaur jewelry (we just shot a beauty story using their colorful beads and bangles), then walked along street vendors with their hidden gems, and ended up at young designers market on mulberry. there i met shannon de jong, astali jewlery designer who's creating bold stylish pieces using toy guns and bullets casings. i couldn't resist and got myself the whole set - two necklaces that can be layered together and a chunky bracelet. LOVE it! hope to use their designs in my upcoming fashion shoots.
