I was never the clutch type until social media swayed me to that direction. I have a problem with all things pretty, edgy or unique. Duh! who doesn’t
The prices are pretty diverse, well-known or not, I am more interested in the structure, material and craftsmanship.
These are my “I WISH I CAN AFFORD” list

I love having my jewelries custom tailored for me. I met this guy who charge me minimal fee as long as he is ok to sell it to other people (should they ask). By other people I mean friends and family. Ben is really on a crisis mode, he thinks he is too amateur to market himself as a “jewelry maker” I am deeply honored that he thinks highly of my opinion that he is awesome but I still can’t quite push him to network and start getting actual orders from people / businesses.
Check out the jewels he made for me. The pulse set was hard to find or way too expensive for my budget so I had him make that for me and then there’s the VIP bangle inspired by Jennifer Fisher’s line. The VIP Patsy was a score from Poshmark, yet another talented individually who uses utensils and up cycles them into arm swags and such.
Lately, I find myself buying jewelries that has an evil eye in its design. So Far I have 4 favorites, the other ones I bought for cheap and not worth keeping anymore. I personally stop buying cheap base metal jewelries as well. A sterling silver, gold, high polish that won’t tarnish or turn my skin to green is the way to go and it gives my money’s worth.
I buy most of my jewelry from TJ Maxx, I found some really cool and unique pieces in there, some are even designer brands for the fraction of its cost.
This ring above was found at a store in Catalina Island, they have so many cute pieces that I want to buy them all, but I promised myself that I will only get one and this was it.
I found these three for my wish list:
Evil Eye Diamond necklace
Michal Golan Evil Eye Necklace
One of my favorite pieces are from a company called VeraMeat, if you are an active Instagram user, you might have seen them being sported by the elite bloggers and fans like myself. Their designs are a statement piece yet dainty in its way. Some jewelry are like that. No need to be loud or BIG to be noticeable. According to the company’s website, “the repertoire is playful and ferocious” (Verameat.com)
I am still a newbie collector of their items, and they are my favorite items, they flair out the simplest outfit. I don’t look so plain in t-shirt and shorts whenever I have one of them. So far here are my collection.
Wishbone Necklace . Dino Claw Hugs Ring . Hi I’m Tiny French . Lucky Shoe . Skull Ring . WTF Ring . Baby Bulldog
I have my eye on the helm ring, Peace Hand necklace, Paint the town red necklace and the spine bracelet. All in goods time.
How I wear my VeraMeat
Hi! my name is Patricia and I blog about jewelry and other accessories. My favorite pieces, on my wish list, whatever as long as it has something to do with jewelry and fashion accessories. These two material subjects makes the crappiest of days seems easy breezy.
I decided to open up a jewelry / accessory blog, aside from the obvious… I really haven’t found any blog dedicated to just that. Sure there are blogs from jewelry and accessory company but that is not what I’ve been looking for. I wanted to connect to fellow jewelry junkies, accessory afficionados, discover new shops, meet designer and possible (hopefully, wishfully) get the privilege to see an actual unique piece being made. I have an active book and product review blog but wanted to venture to something else outside that, so voila! The Jewelry Junkie is born.
I seriously have a no asshole or bitch rule, I only want love and peace, to connect people who share my passion for pretty, nice, well crafted jewels and sure other fashionably lovely things. Share my love of jewelry and accessories and if you have a recommendation please let me know.
