Designer Spotlight: b.u. Jewelry

The art of giving a gift is something with which we all can struggle, especially for those extra-special loved ones. Celeste found this jewelry line, b.u., which captures some of the best sentiments you can give as a gift, with an equally beautiful necklace to embody its meaning. Some of my personal favorites:

These necklaces, all handmade in Brooklyn, are special reminders to those we love; a timely gift that reminds the recipient — whether our friends, daughters, or colleagues — that it’s OK to “Be You” and to let your light shine.

Don’t forget to be true to you!
