    My fave source for unique jewelry is – it’s like an online eBay for crafty/creative people. The variety and quality of the jewelry is great, and every seller I’ve dealt with is really nice and accomodating.

    Plus, many take special orders – so if you like a pair of earrings, for example, but you want them in a different color, they’ll make you a pair just for you. Have fun!

    If you’re on a tight budget (or even if you’re not) try asking your friends and relatives if they have something you can borrow. Most women are glad to join in the prom fun and happy that their wrap/necklace/earrings/fill-in-the-blank is getting some extra use. If your family is a bunch of packrats like mine, you might even find some great retro pieces. Just don’t lost or break it!!
