Ach Ach Liebling: Well, Kiddo? Do Not Covet Necklace
Love the attached commandment charm. Clever, clever. From the site: An antique nudie postcard from one of the early decades of 20th century is reproduced in miniature on a hand-formed pendant. Measuring approx. 1" x 1.5" the pendant is fabricated from a smooth, matte plastic material. The print of a bloomer-clad seductress beneath the words "Well, Kiddo?" is resin-coated for protection from the elements. A tiny vintage charm (.4" x .4") inscribed with the 9th commandment ("Thou shall not covet thy neighbors wife," Kiddo) is the perfect coy accent. Pendant hangs on 16" of brass chain with brass details and charm. This item is custom made, usually ships in 5-7 business days. $35.00 Ach Ach Liebling | USA Wordsmith, plasticsmith and all-around bricoleur, Joanna Petrone sells her hand-fabricated jewelry under the company name Ach Ach Liebling (which means "oh oh darling" in German). Born and raised in downtown Manhattan, Joanna migrated to California to attend Stanford, where she wrote a thesis on lesbian pulp fiction of the 1950s and graduated with a degree in English Literature. An impassioned reader and writer still, Joanna amuses herself by inserting language jokes and games and storybook allusions into her jewelry works, sometimes by nature and sometimes by design. A runaway art project involving plastics and paperback book covers was the impetus behind Joanna's first experimental jewelry line. A hearty stint researching and experimenting with the processes and materials led to Joanna to developed the handsome, durable line of plastic pendants that are now a mainstay of Ach Ach Liebling. In addition to hand-fabricated plastics and printing processes, Joanna uses metal, wood, lucite, celluloid, often incorporating vintage materials into her work. She takes inspiration from old postcards, Fassbinder movies, zoos, Victorian children's books, Antarctica, 19th c. naturalist field guides and ornithology handbooks, deep sea exploration, cities, and candy. A perennial student, Joanna is currently learning metalsmithing at the Revere Jewelry Academy in San Francisco.

Actually, I love all of the parable necklaces Kimberly has designed. Check them out if you get a chance. I couldn't do it the justice done by the description already on the site so here it is: You tried a homemade voodoo doll. Put a hex on their heads. Badmouthed them to all your friends and posted snarky little tidbits on their myspace page. But like the Haagen Dazs you've been medicating with, Revenge is a dish best served cold. And right now you are hot headed. Don't blow your top, blow out your hair, rock the too tall shoes, and work your metallic clutch and golden Revenge necklace. It's sharply cut knife will do more than keep away the riff-raff, it will prove that the best revenge is looking great. 18kt gold vermeil or sterling silver coin is 1 1/4 inches in diameter and hangs on a 30 inch oxidized sterling silver chain. Back reads: "Revenge is a dish best served cold" About the Designer: ________________ Kimberly Baker | USA "I take someone like Audrey Hepburn and picture her at a Misfits show", Seattle jewelry designer Kimberly Baker, says of her design process. It's that fusion of popular culture with classic style that adds pure energy to her designs. Kim's interest in design started early. When she created her first piece in a high school jewelry class she was inspired by the do-it-yourself attitude of women musicians of the time, like Debby Harry, Exene, and Chrissie Hyde. The influence of punk music plays on. Kim now works out of her Fremont (Seattle) studio producing jewelry, designed with imagination and verve, for some of the most cutting edge boutiques across the United States. "The women who wear my work are looking for distinct classic pieces with a tough sexy edge". Modern yet timeless, Kim's bold designs will make any woman feel powerful, sexy, and unique.
