Bottleblonds Have More Fun

Adorable Jewelry for Girls

bottleblond jewelry for girls!

(Sung to the tune of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass”)

Once we had a kid, and it was a gas,
Soon turned out, she’s a fancy lass.
She likes the real thing, only to find,
Plastic kid jewelry is unrefined.

Once we saw Bottleblond; it was divine.
Soon found out, it was well designed.
Vintage deco charms and sparkling gold till we were so blind.
And now we are of the same mind.

In between “these heart necklaces I find pleasing” and “I’m looking fine,”
Quality to treasure forever.
We have peace of mind,
If we see ’40s charms come back to life.
It’s just so good, them dangling like they do.

Lost inside adorable glass bottles is where the hairpins hide.
Alex Hillson designs the raw brass baubles and friendship bracelets we spied.
We couldn’t have made ’em better, yeah.

Yeah, riding high on Bottleblond jewelry’s light.

Available at Yolk, 1626 Silver Lake Boulevard, between Effie Street and Berkeley Avenue, Silver Lake (323-660-4315 or shopyolk.com); online at bottleblond.com, $12-$35.
