The Not-For-Everyone Gift

When my friend Candace visited me a few weeks ago, we rambled all over the part of Brooklyn where I life. One of our stops was In God We Trust, a boutique on a quieter block of Bedford Avenue.

We browsed and tried on sunglasses.

Then I noticed these roughly engraved pendants. Look closely.

I won’t be buying one of these R rated charms for my mother. But for one of my smart ass friends? Perhaps. How about you?

STFU. Please.

Does any fine jewelry designer have as much fun as Wendy Brandes? I don’t think so.

This one made me giggle.
