♥ two heads are better than one.

...or in the case of my new favorite etsy store,
the mother/daughter jewelry design duo
three heads are even better!

as you may know, i have a slight obsession with silhouette necklaces,
but i have never seen any that compare to the exquisite majesty
of those offered by the untamed menagerie.

which is why i am so excited to announce that this week they
will be giving away this charming necklace {above}
known as "a lady ought,"
to one very. lucky. reader.

for those of us who will not win,
here is another gift, on me:
ALL of the pieces below are under $20
and they are freaking gorgeous!!

the lovely ladies of untamed menagerie are penny and nikki,
a mother/daughter team that may share looks but have very different tastes.
nikki is a "pink haired punk" who pushes the envelope with her clothing,
while penny is a practical dresser who prefers basics.

both agree that their jewelry line is a unique combination of their
individual styles, which culminate in pieces that are
"trendy yet timeless."

they are inspired by nature, anatomy and baroque art and can take
anywhere from a few days to a year to produce the perfect jewels.

they live in a small town where boutiques are
hard to come by, and one of a kind jewelry, even harder.
thank goodness that this mom and daughter
took matters into their own hands. literally.

perched, $12
