I don't know what it is about the mix of disparate things that makes so me happy, but it seems to be the case in almost every art or craft form. I like it when it's over the top and also when it's more restrained. I love it in collage, interior design and yes of course, jewelry. Like these fa-hab-ulous necklaces from janis provisor. Oh my, my, such a refined mix of stones in various sizes and shapes, all adding up to such glamourous beauty. What a mixed delight!
