Welcome to my first official "geekery" post! I thought I would kick things off with a compilation of my recent geek acquisitions: geek chic jewelry!

I received all these pieces during the holidays as pressies except for the pterodactyl earrings that I got as a treat to myself. So I guess it still counts as a present. 

I've also been wearing all these jewelry pieces non-stop since I ripped them out of their individual packaging because, really, who else can boast wearing Shazam or Mjolnir earrings? (ok, those Thor earrings are super heavy, and I can only wear them for a few hours at a time or else I feel like I'm dragging my lobes to the ground).  

Apart from being super glad to know that there is affordable jewelry out there catered to my geeky tastes, I'm really happy that these pieces are handmade, and that purchasing them supports the hard-working artists who made them.

  2. I'm not a huge Hobbit fan (not a hater, just not something I'm over the moon about) but that door necklace is absolutely amazing. The detail is awesome and I love that you can hide a teeny tiny trinket or photo inside.

  26. Eeeek! That necklace! That has to be one of those coolest pieces of jewelry ever, the little door even opens! Ooooh, I am going to have to go hunt down this etsy shop. I think it's really awesome that all of this is created by independent artists, I always feel better supporting them as opposed to giving my money away to the big corporations. (Handmade jewelry - awesome.)
    I love how awesomely nerd this is, there's SHAZAM! earrings! That just made me grin from ear to ear, seeing those.

    And really, you're going to be visiting ak? Girl, if you make it to Fairbanks we are going to have to meet up!
