i saw a necklace on an outing to silverlake this summer and could not get it out of my mind. something about the primitive nature of the mala bead really stuck with me. i decided to call vivier and bentley, the shop where i saw the necklace, to ask if they could ship it. lo and behold they told me about kathryn bentley’s online dream collective shop. made from oxidized brass and antique african beads, the pieces exude a primal quality while feeling delicate. the variety of rings, bracelets and necklaces are made in the united states and are very well priced. so get your dream on at www.dreamcollective.com.
