state pride.

I am one of those people that takes great pride in where I've come from (Wisconsin, by way of Georgia) and where I am (South Carolina). I wear this pride around my neck with a Maya Brenner 'Wisconsin' necklace that I adore. 

While I recommend Maya's work to everyone I know, I do always cringe a bit because her pieces are a bit on the pricey side (but worth every penny).
Enter yesterday. I was browsing the interwebs and happened upon Kris Nations jewelry line.  A couple of reasons I already love her:

1. She uses recycled metals.
2. She has $6 flat rate shipping.
3. She makes beautiful work!

Speaking of beautiful work... she has lovely state necklaces that are *gasp* affordable!




Pretty adorable right?
So what do you think? Would you wear your state pride around your neck?

I would wear it. I love these little state necklaces and think they're so sweet. I would just have a hard time deciding what state to pick. Also, Maya Brenner designs a few pieces for Stella & Dot each season, and they're a lot more affordable than her real line.

I live in FL now but was born in TN and love GA, where I went to college. I'm juggling...I just won a contest for a state magnet with a little heart on your city so picking a "home" is really being thrown at me today (my boyfriend wants to stay here and I want to go somewhere else...that's why I'm so torn).

these are adorable! i actually ordered a similar one for the state of NC (with a cut out heart over Raleigh - loved!), but it ended up being a material that my sin was allergic to - such a bummer! but these are lovely!

These are precious. And dare I say possibly even cuter than the more expensive version. I love that they include the name of the state!
