After a recent yoga class at the new Exhale Battery Wharf, I exited the locker room into a packed lobby of fashionable wine swilling hardbodies. Dear lord, I’ve been upping the gym ante to avoid those tempting tannins – the last thing I needed is for this place to start handing out free booze. I managed to avoid the alcohol but couldn’t avoid the merch – a lovely lady was selling some pretty edgy jewelry in the middle of this mayhem. While I was falling fast for the necklaces I chatted with the designer and learned that she worked right out of my neighborhood!
So I purchased myself a funky skullie necklace (see above) and decided the lovely Christie Melene Kent would be a lovely subject of my next Stopping by this Life column. So do check out the column, and do check out Melene Kent Jewels – they’re fresh, funky and local.
