I forgot to include Adina jewelry in my last post of fabulous items made by L.A.-area craftspeeps. This local designer hammers out nicely understated silver jewelry using her signature circle motif. Most of the pieces are a titch out of my price range, but if you want to cheat and get them cheaper (I don’t think she’s hurting, what with five bees on the “buzz-o-meter” and all), try Go Clothing.
Oh, and don’t let her necklaces’ appearances on “Friends” scare you away; some things can transcend Hollywood celebrity endorsements. Some things cannot.
