I Dream of Hoops.

My love of earrings is no great secret these days. When I can motivate myself into nothing more creative than a white t-shirt, jeans and a pair of Chucks, I still love to throw on a pair of big hoops to add some glamour.

For those days, I'm got my eye on the Jill from indie jewelry designer, Kristen McCloud. Kristen's signature is the use of gorgeous precious and semi-precious gems in striking and dramatic hoops. The Jill is particularly unique as the hoop itself is triangular and imperfect in a charmingly downtown sort of way.
