PERSONAL BLING Personalized jewelry can be fun, but often you sacrifice style to do it because choices are limited. The rings are straight bands, the charms are round, etc. But Jessie Girl Jewelry takes personalization to a new level with a wealth of beautiful and affordable hand-made onts, forms jewelry that offers choices of fonts, minum, and metals (sterling silver, aluminum, mate copper and brass) for the ultimate personalization. My favorite is the Hand Stamped Wrap Ring ($19.99) from Jessie Girl, with the My Favorite People 1/2” Cuff Bracelet ($28.99) a close second. jessiegirljewelry.com
