all apologies in advance, this post isn't about any foreign markets.  this post is about some amazing jewelry a little closer to home, namely the amazing new york based designer pamela love's fall 2012 collection.

 i know i'm a few months behind on this one but news travels much slower on this side of the world.  like how i just found out that heidi klum and seal broke up.  really can't believe that one, i loved them together!  but i digress, back to the jewels at hand!  pamela love's fall 2012 collection is AMAZING and as usual i want every piece.  most of you know that i've been a massive pamela love fan from my first piece, this guy:

the ladies of el almacen might even remember the time that pamela love came in for brunch and i totally creeped her out by telling her how much i love her work and what a huge fan i am.  she felt the love, she never came back, but i know she felt it!  anyway this new collection just reaffirms why i love her as a designer.  i love her ability to mix different elements in her pieces like tribal and urban, gritty and delicate, simple yet ornately detailed.  there's a real art deco vibe to this season and the pieces all feel architectural and structural but with beautiful detail and pops of color.  as always there's a hint of tribal to the collection with some awesome patterns and the use of turquoise and coral.   basically she's incredible and this new season has made me an even bigger fan, and i don't care if it creeps her out, just keep the jewels coming!

i love these two necklaces layered together especially since they're both such statement pieces.  the upper arm cuff is amazing.  note to self, need more upper arm cuffs.  image courtesy of fashionologie.com.

talk about a statement necklace!  i love the mix of art deco and tribal.  image courtesty of fashionologie.com

and again with the statement necklace!  the detail here is incredible.

 for anyone who loves the collection as much as i do, moda operandi is giving you the chance to preorder pieces from the collection until april 3rd.  so what are you still doing reading this??  get over there!  but if you are still here check out this behind the scenes video from pamela love's design studio from fashionologie in which she talks a little bit about her inspiration for the collection.  enjoy, and for real this time next stop vietnam!
