Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

Buzz Thrill

Posted Aug. 6, 2008
Suffering as I am from backyard-barbecue bug bites, I’m not exactly eager for more exposure to insects. Well, at least real ones. But I am oddly attracted to these specimen pendants from Jalea Jalea. (Hey, if you can’t beat ‘em, wear ‘em.) These leggy little trinkets of coral, brass, and pearls are made in Mexico and serve as a stylish, if slightly creepy, way to spice up those summer outfits you’ve recently grown tired of. Wear one to your next outdoor event and expect friends to be buzzing with compliments. Warning: You may soon be itching for more.
