My fixation with outer space and its crossover into fashion has rehatched my love of mineral rock rings. In the latter part of my teens I was really into amber, the often orange-colored fossilized resin from ancient forests. I collected a few really awesome rings, which I still have somewhere. Designers like Josh Goot, McQueen, and Marios Schwab all were inspired by crystals and minerals this year, and it has rubbed off on me too lately to say the least. I dug up (get it?) some really rad finds on etsy, and learned some new words in the process like "chalcopyrite."
